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! ~

I can’t seem to stay focused on one knitting project at a time anymore.  I cast on Beatrix’s Camilla last week and I keep going back to it rather than working on my other projects.  (knitting it in carrie’s yellow, as I have been wanting to knit Bea a yellow sweater for some time-knitting the 24 mo. size with a couple extra fan repeats to make it long enough for her)   I have the yarn to knit another one for the new baby, and plans to knit one for Larkspur and one for me as well.  I realize that might be overkill, but I just really love the look of this sweater, and we will all have different colors.  Both the child and the adult pattern call for bulky yarn, so I think that will make it feasible to finish the sweaters for Larkspur and me. 
 I’ve never knit myself a sweater, so this will be a first.
I am about halfway through The Forgotten Garden, so I am definintely not sticking with my original plan of it being my first postpartum read considering the fact that I am still pregnant!  I am reading The Hotel Cat to my kids.  They all love Jenny Linsky and her cat friends!
Thanks so much for playing along!
