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 photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

In addition to my baby surprise jacket, I’ve been working on Larkspur’s top down cardigan.  This cardigan was originally meant for Larkspur to wear next fall, and I plan to knit one for Beatrix as well.  I am wishing I had spent more time on it because we have had an unusually cool spring and this cardigan would have been useful. 
I finished reading Jane Eyre a few days ago (loved her, but can’t say it was my favorite book ever, a little too dark for my taste) and started reading The Forgotten Garden, a book I have had on the shelf for awhile, saving it for when the baby is born.  I figure I am close enough.  It’s funny, though I am not one to read a book more than once, I have also had the urge lately to pick up Kristin Lavransdatter again.  I was reading Kristin when Beatrix was born, and it is definitely one of my favorite books ever.
Thanks so much for playing along friends!
(**And those of you posting crochet projects, don’t forget to add the word “crochet” next to your name! thanks!)
