Still working on that balance. The adventuring party is about to grow by two and that’ll have to change quite a lot from the original writing. I think I know what direction it’s going though.


Let the Circle Be Unbroken by Mildred D. Taylor. This is an old favorite of mine, one of the few books that has lasted through now since my childhood shelves. My copy is very well loved and has been often read. I’ve read the preceding story, Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry many times as well. I was unaware, until recently, that there was a third book. That’s found a place on our shelves and I wanted a small refresher before grabbing that story.

Every time I do this pattern I’m amazed at how it grows so quickly and how fast it seems to go, it’s one of those great projects for watching movies and TV while working on. Plus? I think I’ve found a new favorite yarn. I’m using a cotton yarn from Knit Picks and it’s so soft and cuddly. It’ll be perfect for wrapping a baby up in.

  1. I love Knit Picks' yarn, though I haven't tried any of their cotton blends yet. But I love their tonal sock yarns – and their customer service!

    I am in serious love with all their stuff that I've used so far. Plus they ship fairly quickly. 😀

    A well-loved book speaks volumes. I haven't read this one of hers. I also haven't tried out any cotton yarns from KnitPicks. What is the name of the yarn and pattern?


  4. Shadow Byrd says:

    The yarn is Simply Cotton Worsted and the pattern is actually the Sweet Lullaby Seamless Baby Blanket on KnitPicks. It's a great pattern.


  5. Shannon says:

    Oooh, that blanket DOES look soft and cozy, and it's a lovely color too!


  6. Shadow Byrd says:

    It's incredibly soft. I was surprised at how soft the yarn is. I can't take credit for the color though, that's all the customer's choice. 🙂 I'll have to order some for myself. 😀
