~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. 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? Linking with Ginny ~Small Things

I am still knitting along
There is no pattern:
I cast on
not counting:
knit while
watching the
pressure cooker
gauge until
I think its big
enough :
cast off.
Handles will be
completed the

I am just starting
to read:
It is about a four
year old little boy
who, while having
surgery, enters heaven.
He survives the surgery
and later begins telling
what happened when
he was in heaven. He
describes Jesus, angels,
relatives long deceased
and God. I now know why
this book is on Amazon's
bestseller list. An
excellent read.


  1. I love the variations of the green in the bag. As for the book, it sounds interesting. I sent you an email to reply to your questions on my blog too. Happy knitting and reading. Jacinta

  2. the book sounds like a really really nice story!
    ...I knitted a vest like that - no pattern, no counting stitches, just knitting until it was big enough and it turned out pretty well.
    Live the green shades of your bag :)

  3. The produce bag is lovely-love the shades of green! I am also adding the book to my reading list. Sounds fascinating!

  4. I have seen this book at Barnes and Noble, now that I know it is good I am going to have to get it! I love the colors of your produce bag!

  5. looks like a fun little pattern you dream up. Sometimes those are the best ones!

  6. I'm intrigued by your book! You'll have to update us next week. I love the green of your produce bag - and kind of wish there was a pattern to share! ;)

  7. The bag is wonderful. There are more like that book if you are interested... I can email titles. Just let me know!

  8. The books looks really interesting. Love the bag!

  9. Love the bag too. But where is the cardigan? (don't smack me ;0). The book sounds interesting but I think my hormones could not handle that type of read right now. Magazines are a good thing

  10. Oh wow, that yarn is gorgeous! One day I hope to relax enough while knitting to give up patterns, counting, and even watching each stitch form :-)

  11. I love that bag! What kind of yarn are you using?
    I also love the ease in which you knit it-wonderful!

  12. I'm impressed by you non-pattern people! Can't do it...yet.

  13. I'm still loving that green, and now I'm thinking the next project I get into will be a pretty green like yours...

  14. I haven't read this book but watched interviews with the boy - so interesting! Woohoo for easy knitting - just what summer calls for, I think.

  15. Peaceful post Tracey, and I love the color of your yarn!

  16. What a clever idea! One of these days I want to be confident enough in my knitting that I can just cast on & let it go wherever it goes. Not yet, though. xo

  17. Sometimes some mindless knitting is needed to relax :)
