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 made some progress on Beatrix’s Immie last week, despite also spending time finishing up a couple of other projects that had been sitting around needing ends woven in, button bands re-knitted, and other not so fun tasks.  A pattern with a bit of lace in it is so satisfying, I think, and also seems to move more quickly.  I am almost ready to start the sleeves on this sweet little sweater.
Thanks to a comment on last week’s Yarn Along, I found a used copy of Anne of Green Gables with nice big readable print, and returned to reading it.  Of course I love Anne already, and am aspiring to be more like her in the way I look at the world.
p.s.  Go check out Betsy’s blog:  the final Knit for Japan count is in!
Below is a linky list if you’d like to add a link to your own Yarn Along photo. 

(**And those of you posting crochet projects, don’t forget to add the word “crochet” next to your name to make yourself easier for other crocheters to find! )
(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) 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!
