~ 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! ~
Well, there wasn’t much knitting for me this week. But, I did cast on a sweater using some yarn that’s been sitting in my stash for too long, and it’s a sweater for me! Both my knitting project and my book this week have been inspired by other Yarn Along-ers. I have had the February Lady sweater in my queue on Ravelry for ages, but it was seeing Joy’s that convinced me to finally cast on (thanks Joy!) I finished reading This Life is in Your Hands a few days ago, and desperate for a lighter read, I picked up The Knitter’s Home Companion thanks to Lori, who mentioned this book in a Yarn Along post a few weeks ago (thanks Lori!) This book is a lovely little collection of stories, patterns, and recipes. Silas has taken to reaching back to grab my knitting when he’s nursing, resulting in more than one dropped stitch. Reading is safer, and if I can’t actually knit, at least I can read about knitting. And speaking of reading, check out Ellen’s Yarn Along Library List! It’s a PDF you can print inspired by all of the books that you shared last month!
