A Peek at My Bookshelf

Would you like a sneak peek at some of my latest library finds? I haven't been reading as much as I'd like, unfortunately. The weather has been gorgeous outside and there seem to be a million things to do inside too. When I find a few minutes at the end of the day, here are some of the books I will reach for:

I greatly enjoyed Enger's first novel and am about half way through his second. I find myself completely entranced by Enger's poetic voice.

Amanda recommended Artist to Artist on her Soule Mama blog and our family immediately reserved it at the library. The children love leafing through the pictures and we've discovered several of the profiled illustrators' books on our shelves at home.

If I am to take the plunge into a new knitting project this fall, Baby Knits for Beginners is the book I'll use. This book has knitting patterns I can actually understand!

Pure eye candy. I simply love looking through the pictures in Yarn Play.

The only garment I've sewn for myself used a Built by Wendy pattern. I am curious to read Wendy's instructional book. (And even more curious to look through its included patterns!)

Reading Back on Blossom Street is a purely guilty pleasure. I reach for this novel when I want to relax and turn my brain off. The Blossom Street stories are sweet yarns about friendship and (what else these days?) knitting!

how funny! I just bought the very same Debbie Bliss book - perfect timing!! I had taken it out from the library and loved it so much I purchased it. In fact I was just at a yarn store this morning browsing. Perhaps we should get together for some knitting afternoons.

ps - we are having the first signs of success with nighttime as we implement some of the strategies from your book. can't thank you enough!!
