but not overpowering.

It's been all about flowers and knitting for a while. I don't think I shared about a series that I read recently and thoroughly enjoyed. Chronicles of the Kings is a series of 5 books by Lynn Austin. Gods and Kings is the first in the series. The author tells the story of 3 Kings of the Old Testament, Ahaz, Hezekiah, and Manasseh, their contemporaries-including the prophet Isaiah, and their struggles with godliness or the abandonment of godliness. Austin's stories stay close the Biblical facts but elaborate on the times, possible motivations, and how the outcomes of each reign might have come about. The books are engaging. I found many unexpected lessons while reading of each character's struggles and victories. The best part is going into Scripture to reread the passages that these novels are based on with new appreciation.

This is Brenda Myer's Lacy Scarflet pattern but continued
to be a full scarf. Lacy Scarflet
The color in the top photo is more true to the actual color,
a deep, rich purple. I like the bottom photo for how it
shows the stitch pattern.
I blocked this (washed, pinned, allowed to dry while pinned)
to show off the edging. I'll ask Sis if she'd rather have a less
lacy look. It would be easy to re-block.
