Accel World by Reki Kawahara I’m re-reading this light novel series since the next volume comes out next month. The same author wrote the series Sword Art Online , and even though I like that series a lot, I didn’t immediately start reading this one because the hero didn’t sound all that interesting. But one day after devouring the latest Sword Art Online volume and needing to wait for the next installment, I decided to start on Accel World since I enjoy the author’s writing style. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the hero was absolutely adorable! He’s incredibly kind and brave despite his low self-esteem, and he has a very positive mentality that makes him admirable. I gobbled this series up. I wish the author would write in this series faster than he does. (There is some cussing in this series.) Is there a book you enjoyed reading recently?
Dear Lord, Thank You for forgiving us of our sins with the sacrifice of Your son on the cross. Thank You also for reminding us to follow You and Your will—so that we can be better people, so that we can treat others with love and respect, so that we can give You glory with our actions. Help us to cling to what is good and right and to do those things in order to please You, in order to be holy. Help us each to become a child You can be proud of, and help us to trust You to watch over and protect us no matter what happens. In Jesus’ name, Amen. 親愛なる主よ、 十字架上の御子の犠牲によって、私たちの罪を赦してくださり、ありがとうございます。また、私たちがより良い人間になれるように、愛と尊敬をもって他者に接することができるように、私たちの行動によってあなたに栄光を帰することができるように、あなたとあなたの御心に従うように私たちに気づかせてくださりありがとうございます。私たちが良いこと、正しいことに執着し、あなたを喜ばせるために、聖なる者となるために、それらのことを行うことができるように助けてください。私たち一人一人が、あなたに誇りに思っていただけるような子どもになれるように、そして、何が起ころうとも、あなたが私たちを見守って守ってくださることを信じられるように助けてください。 イエスの御名によって、アーメン。

In my series Lady Wynwood’s Spies, my character Keriah is more emotional than her friend Phoebe, and so when writing about her in Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 6: Martyr , naturally I described her scarf as having more lively colors than the greens and blues that Phoebe favors. I didn’t really have a particular yarn colorway in mind when I wrote the scene, but when looking through my stash to knit her scarf, I found the Carnival colorway in Knit Picks Chroma Twist Fingering, and it was absolutely perfect for her. Chroma Twist Fingering is discontinued, but you could knit this in Chroma Fingering or any other color-transitional yarn. In the Regency era, a tri-color 3-ply yarn like Chroma Twist Fingering would probably not have been sold in shops, but it also may not have been completely unheard of. It is made by simply dying the wool rather than the finished yarn, and then the dyed wool would be split into 3 parts and each part spun into a single ply, before all three plies
