~ 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! ~
Having finished my scarf a couple of days ago, I actually only have one project on the needles now. (That’s not going to last!) I am working on a pretty little shawl for a gift. I really like this pattern, the Oaklet Shawl, because it stays simple until you reach the border at the end. That makes it a good project for me to work on during the day here and there, especially while my boys read to me. When I reach the border, I will have to start working on it after my kids are in bed. The yarn is Springtree Road’s Julep, which I chose for the color because I think it is perfect for my intended recipient (this yarn is also just plain nice to work with.)
After seeing Tonya’s last Yarn Along post, I requested This Life is in Your Hands from my library. It’s an autobiography written by Eliot Coleman’s daughter Melissa. Her family’s story is interesting to me on many levels, especially because I have read one of Eliot Coleman’s books on organic growing.
