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! ~

Today I am letting my eight year old son, Keats, take this Yarn Along.  He is almost finished with a tiny, bright, little hat for his new baby brother who is expected to arrive in less than six weeks now. 
(He’s using this yarn.)
Can you imagine how much I will always treasure this little hat?
Another big deal around here for Keats is that he started reading his first chapter book, on his own accord, about a week ago.  He is reading Three Tales of My Father’s Dragon, and is now in the second of the three books this volume contains.  My children have all loved these tales.
p.s.  Stay tuned later this week for a very special post on teaching children how to knit.
(**And those of you posting crochet projects, don’t forget to add the word “crochet” next to your name! thanks!) 

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) 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!
