Yarn Along: Everyday Saints...


My Tea Leaves Cardigan is coming along quickly.  I have three more rows before I can bind off on the body, which is exciting!  The pattern calls for moving right to the sleeves, but I am going start with the button bands so that I don't have extra yarn to weave in (that was a tip mentioned by a Ravlery user!).  I'm a little worried that I will run out of yarn...  All I have left is one more skein after the yarn in this photo is finished.

I am plowing through a book that I started several months ago.  I didn't finish it back then because I kept giving my copy away...  The last one that I had went to Metropolitan Tikhon when he came to visit!  Everyday Saints is translated from Russian and is a collection of very short stories written by the abbot of an Orthodox monastery.  It has become wildly popular all over the world and has won several literary awards.  I look forward to reading it all day and am going to be sad when I am done.

looks wonderful! I can't wait to read this book - we have it - it is my future Pascha present - you can tell I have forgotten all about it hey? :) LOL.

I read on one blog site that when she ran out of yarn, she got more form other ravelry folk. So if your store does not have more or it is not online, maybe you can find it and buy some off of someone?

Wishing you a beautiful day!

Thanks for recommending this book. I gave it to my husband for Christmas after reading your blog and I got lots of "points". I rarely find something new that he enjoys. Thank you thank you.
