Yarnalong: "The Lifegiving Home" and "Pavement"

Today I'm linking up with Ginny, over at Small Things, who says, "Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading . . . I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?"

The book:
I'm reading "The Lifegiving Home" by Sally and Sarah Clarkson. So far, it's a lovely and restful read, perfect for summer.

The knitting:
The knitting is "Pavement", by Veera Välimäki (Rav link). It's a cute pullover and I'm ... well, honestly, I'm knitting it in order to knit up some old (really beautiful, but been-sittin'-in-my-stash-too-long) laceweight yarn. I'm holding two laceweight yarns double, and I like the fabric I'm getting. Here's a link to my project details on Ravelry.

Välimäki is the designer of the "Color Affection" shawl, which I knit not just once, not just twice, but three times. It's fun to finally take on one of her sweater designs.

What are you creating and reading this week?

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

The color of your yarn is beautiful! I have read all of Sally's books and this one is very good, too:-) Blessings~

Thank you, Suzanne! Yes, this is my second of hers, I think ... I like her writing a lot, but her daughter's is (to my mind) even better! It's fun reading a book written with both of their voices.
