When Knitting Is Your Place of Peace

     When life gets complicated and stress and disappointments arise knitting is my refuge.  It's a steadying point.  A place where I feel no matter what that I've returned home and I settle inside and find peace.  Daily adding to my Quick & Thick Scarf.  An easy knit, mindless and satisfyingly fast (even if I'm too busy to knit a lot, I see results).  It's free on Ravelry.

Come on by to our knitting group on Ravelry

 Ravelry Resistance Knitters.

We are currently working on a KAL for Cowls & Scarves for Asylum Seekers!!!

Contests for those that post they are in the KAL! First drawing Saturday, November  8th.

We have a direct connection to the head of Suenos Sin Fronteras who will personally see our knitted creations get to Asylum Seekers in Northeast Asylum Cities.  Brrr, it's getting cold, please remember our newest arrivals with kindness and ways to get them warm in body, soul, and heart!


     Still reading The Golden Hour, which I got through the Book of the Month club.  It's a really great book and being in BOTM has opened up so many books and authors, and genres I would of not normally know about and read. 

     At nights in bed and during my break at work I read "The Music Shop" on my kindle.  It's such a beautiful book.  Really nice to savor.  I love the words, the descriptions of music.  I just wished that I knew more about music and recognized all the musicians and musical pieces, but it's an inspiration to learn.  The story revolves around a music shop down a worn-down street in a city where all the shops are closing down.  Frank the music store owner only sells vinyl records, even in the face of new CDs.  He has the gift of selecting music for people and their emotional needs, but he is alone.  Then one day a mysterious woman walks in, who never listens to music, and Frank embarks on teaching her.  Very sweet and an amazing book.  Relishing it one chapter at a time.

Come Join Us at Unraveled Wednesday

On a Thursday!
