Trying my hand at Tunisian Crochet, I started making this Shadow Stitch Cowl. The fabric created with this stitch pattern and my hook size was much too stiff for a scarf, but thankfully, before ripping it out, I got the idea to turn this into a pillow cover. I have a skinny, rectangular pillow that this width should fit. So that's what I'm making! Not sure how much I'm actually loving Tunisian, but I'm glad to be trying something new. It's interesting.
Just this week I got my hands on the book The More of Less with Joshua Becker. I honestly didn't think there'd be anything new in a book on minimalism, but having listened to an interview on NPR with Joshua Becker about this book - just before its release, I knew I wanted to give it a read. I've been pleasantly surprised. Becker weaves stories of others, with relevancies between minimalism and his Christian faith, and has an easy, "I'm a work in progress, too" sort of attitude that makes this a very enjoyable and enlightening read. I'm really glad to be reading it.
