I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee...Psalm 9:verses 1 and 2a

Oh boy, have I been having fun on ebay. I won (by bidding the highest) three things last week and the sellers shipped them to me within a few days. Never before has anything come in the mail so quickly. And I just had to show off my knitting with the darling 'Turkish Bed Socks' by Churchmouse Classics. The yarn is self patterning and soooo pretty! This pattern is ingenious and pretty easy once you watch the you tube demo for part 6. I'm coming down the home stretch now toward the toe.
And this is what I'm reading. Even though it is book 3, and I didn't get to read the first 2 books, I didn't miss them a bit. This is a 4* good read. The girl is a ranger in the Grand Canyon park and the story is interesting & her problems lifelike... with bits about the Canyon intertwined. It had my interest from the first few paragraphs. Don't you love it when a book 'captures' you right away? I do. A good sign...not sigh...haha
This is the other knitting book I won the bidding on last week. Both books look like gems for my knitting library. I've always admired people who could knit socks. It looks so difficult, but really once someone explains the basics....it is do-able and much of it is easy. Nothing is hard, really, its just keeping track of what section you are on. I have a terrible memory, but my knitting is going great! And is fun! Great for the morale too.
My Franciscan plates came this morning! My most recent Ebay purchase of the three. I've always...always...admired these apple designed plates and they always seemed so out of reach $$. But ebay gave me these too, with a little cash of course! In fact, I had forgotten that we had put a bid on these and I was floored when I went to pay for the knitting book to find I had won these too. Plus all this happy stuff....beautiful cards from our daughter came in the mail today. We are making our own sunshine this morning =).
I must rush away to get ready for my knitting group, after I leave feedback for the Franciscan plates. What are you knitting? There is nothing in the world like knitting something that you've never attempted before and find it going well. With the help of friends....I might add. Hope you have a wonderful day!
