~ 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 sharing two photos today because I couldn’t help but step back and capture the real situation in my kitchen this afternoon. Silas and Beatrix are sick and Beatrix actually never changed out of her nightgown today. I like the pretty shot of my knitting and book, but the second photo captures my day. I kind of like seeing my messy countertops and Beatrix with her uncombed hair and the marks from yesterdays’ marker incident still on her face. This is what my life really looks like.
The weather here has been cool again, and I am wishing that I could wear my February Lady Sweater! I am sure that just as I finish it, things will heat up again. I am getting close to being finished with the body, and it should only be another few days before I can move on to the sleeves. Of course with Beatrix and Silas sick, that may not actually work out the way I am hoping. I feel like I am moving so slowly on this project, but it actually knits up very quickly.
I was afraid that I would have to confess today that I am honestly reading half a dozen books right now without feeling like I am getting close to finishing any of them. While that is still true, a friend loaned me her copy of Style, Sex, and Substance a few days ago and I abandoned all my other books and read it cover to cover in a couple of days. I absolutely loved it and am going to buy myself a copy so I can reread it while marking my favorite parts and dog earing the pages.
