Just off the needles is my Age of Steam and Brass Kerchief Ginny's versions were so inspiring, I though this would be the perfect going away present for dear friend who is moving at the end of the month. It was knit with a super soft wool bamboo blend that I am just loving. The color in the photo is horrible. Oh so need someone to give me some photography lessons. It really is beautiful shades of purples and greys.
On the reading front I am working my way through Organized Simplicity and really enjoying it. Thanks for all the web recommendations for this book. I love the author's point that simplicity will look different for everyone. And that simplicity isn't about a plain style or giving up what you love or never indulging, but rather more about living with focuses purpose and making choices that support that purpose.
Don't forget to hop on over to the Yarn Along and see what others are knitting and reading.

It has been a while since joining the weekly Yarn Along, not for lack of knitting or reading mind you, but just not the time to blog about it.
Last night I was able to finish this scarf that a woman in town has asked me to knit to match one of her favorite hats. What an honor. I have never knit for anyone except family and a gift for my best friend. So being asked to knit for someone I hardly know was a true blessing and honor. Thanks to the ladies at our local yarn shop, Close Knit Sisters, for all the help selecting the perfect yarn. You can find the free pattern and my notes on Ravelry. Those that know me, know purple is my favorite color. I would really love to keep this for myself. I just hope the recipient loves it as much as I do.
As for reading, I have been busy working my way through the Family Herbalist course from Vintage Remedies. WOW! I am learning so much. It is so freeing to know I can have such a positive impact on my family's health. Thanks for my mother-in-law for such an awesome Christmas gift.
Don't forget to head on over to this weeks yarn along and see what everyone else is knitting and reading. There's always so much inspiration.
