Yarn Along

Joining the Yarn Along again this week.

I'm still working on my afghan really can't tell much about it in this picture. I don't really think I should start a new project while this big one is still so far from being finished. I just keep crocheting along...

I've enjoyed several books on my Kindle since my last Yarn Along post. I finished The Antiquary.  I also read The Agony Column, by Earl Derr Biggers, which was another enjoyable story, set in Britain at the beginning of WWI.

This week's Yarn Along book is On the Incarnation, by St. Athanasius. C.S. Lewis wrote a very famous introduction to this book, which I read some years ago, and I thought it was time that I actually read the rest of the book.  I've been afraid to start it because I thought I would not really be able to follow along or understand it (I'm a Bear of Very Little Brain, you know) but I've finished the first chapter and I was surprised at how not difficult it was. I also love the fact that I can read a book that was written in the 4th century on my 21st century e-reading device.  I feel like Jean-Luc Picard on the Starship Enterprise, with my e-reader and a cup of Earl Grey tea beside me!


  1. I didn't understand a word you just said. HA! But you love me anyway. Oh, I did understand C.S. Lewis. He wrote those Narnia books, right? DON'T KILL ME! I'M JUST KIDDING!

  2. Since I'm assuming you didn't understand my reference to Jean-Luc Picard, I posted a little video for you.

  3. I LOVED your reference to Picard, and now I'm tempted to go download that book just because of you!
