Yarn Along: 24th August

This week I am again  joining  Ginny and the other ladies with my book reading and knitting projects
I have been so enjoying knitting these little Gnomes that Tonya designed from her blog  Plain and Joyful Living . I have yet to make them up but have thoroughly enjoyed the knitting of them. I especially can't wait to see how the bright rainbow colours one comes out.

I have not made much progress from last week with Heaven on Earth: A Handbook for Parents of Young Children, as I have been reading this great book by Rosemary Sutcliffe: The Shield Ring. 
I really do recommend most of her books and all the ones we own are fantastic for a history of Britain during and after the Roman times.

Blessings to you and your homes,

Gae, I love, love, love Rosemary Sutcliffe's writings, but her best book of all (I think!) is set in Tudor England - The Armourer's House. I haven't read the Shield Ring, so I'll look it up.

I have been meaning to make some of those little gnomes. I've heard they're really fun to make up. I'm wondering if it will get added to my Christmas list...

Amy Caroline said...

I have never read her... or have I? The name is so familiar. I will have to look her up!
