Like I'm floating, floating, up above that big blue ocean
Sand beneath our feet, big blue sky above our heads,
No need to keep stressing from our everyday life on our minds
We have got to leave all that behind"
-At the beach, The Avett brothers
a little long. I thought it would
make a great beach cover up so we
tried it out Tuesday and it works, plus
I don't have to worry about it being
outgrown anytime soon because
from the looks of it she can wear it
for many, many years. Maybe
one day I will finally 'get' gauge.
I am still working on the next one,
but since it's in wool I didn't think
I could handle it in the heat so I
cast on Pebble Tank in cotton.
A super simple pattern, one that is
easy to pick up and set down, perfect
a lazy day at the beach.
I first heard of A Prayer for Owen Meany
when I was visiting Ivey's space and I am
so thankful I did, I love this book. Once I
am finished I plan on having every member
of my family reading it too.
"In the summer of 1953, two eleven-year-old boys
—best friends—are playing in a Little League
baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire.
One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the
other boy's mother. The boy who hits the ball
doesn't believe in accidents; Owen Meany
believes he is God's instrument. What happens
to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary."
I am about a quarter of the way into the book
and find myself wishing I had more hours in
my day to just read.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
