Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a single photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

Well, I am not sure this sweater will be finished in time for Keats’ birthday, as I only have a little over a week left.  Beatrix is sick (again!) so sleep isn’t happening, nor are my late night knitting sessions.  We’ll see though.  I have left the body where it’s at in this picture and am starting on the sleeves now.  I think it’s easier to knit the sleeves before finishing the body as there is less bulk to shift around.  I really love how the owl cable is looking so far.  (pattern and yarn details in this post.)
I am still reading Persuasion ,  and this week I started A Nest for Celeste: A Story About Art, Inspiration, and the Meaning of Home with my boys.  Of course Seth picked it up and finished it the first evening, but Keats and Gabe don’t do that yet, so they are still listening, and really enjoying this sweet little story about a mouse.
Below is a linky list if you’d like to add a link to your own Yarn Along photo.

(1) Make sure the link you submit is to the URL of your blog post or your specific Flickr photo and not your main blog URL or Flickr Photostream. Please be sure and link to your current Yarn Along post, and not a Yarn Along post from a previous week.
(2) Include a link back here in your blog post or flickr photo page.
(3) Thanks for playing along!
(4) Oh, and if you have any trouble linking up, just email me and I will help you!

You can also join the Flickr Yarn Along Group to share your knitting and reading photos anytime!

I love to hear from you!
