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 am sort of cheating this week.  I have been knitting in every spare moment, and not reading much.  The body of Gabe’s sweater will be finished tonight, and I will probably be listening to Willa Cather’s Song of the Lark on this nifty little gadget that I got for my birthday.  I live in the dark ages to some extent because we’ve never bought anything that begins with an “i” and don’t even carry cell phones except on trips.  I recently went shopping for a new CD player and realized based on what I saw that it is time to move forward a bit.  I really wanted a way to listen to audiobooks while knitting, and I also wanted an easy way to play them for my children (I plug it into a little speaker.)  I love this tiny little talking thing!  It bookmarks the place where I leave off, and it doesn’t have any unnecessary bells and whistles (well, it may, but I am blissfully unaware of them.)  My only regret is that I don’t care for the narrator’s voice on this particular Willa Cather novel.  Cather is easily my favorite author and I realized as the story began that I have created a voice for her in my mind that just doesn’t match up with the voice on the audiobook.  I won’t listen to any more of her books, but will stick to reading them myself.
