full | link round-up

i do a good bit of reading, watching, and listening via the internet and i've been coming across some really great things lately that i want to pass on to you. some things knitting related, some things life related, some encouraging, some challenging. one could say that i'm filling myself up with some good stuff.

here's what i've been doing lately...

i'm obsessed with this app and website. great studies and encouragements. i've been following the Esther study in the print format but you can access the plan here.

i found some new and audio.

audio: the influence podcast, woolful

other stuff...

this wonderful post about desiring beauty

karen's blog and instagram

i'm trying to get my hands on this book.

i'm listening to this album on repeat. if there was ever an album that spoke DIRECTLY to where i am, it's this one.

Pattern: Antarktis

Yarn: MarigoldJen Merino/Alpaca Sock Weight in "African Violets"

Mug: "Yarn Diet Mug" from GnomeAcres gifted by my good friend, Faith

in case you aren't following the group, i just wanted to pop by really quick and tell you all that i promise i'm still here. january proved to be quite a busy month for me. knitting was very scarce and oftentimes i wouldn't even have the energy to sit down and put thoughts together for a post or an episode.

i do have a little surprise for you that will hopefully be up soon.

in the meantime, i hope you are keeping busy with a good cup of coffee and some knitting just for you.
