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! ~
Yarn Along

I love both my knitting and my book this week.  I am working on a shawl for a friend and the pattern is simple enough that I can work on it throughout the day.  I won’t have enough yarn to make it as big as the pattern calls for, but there is a recipe for making either a smaller or larger shawl, so I can just downsize a bit.  I love the color and wish this photo did a better job portraying it.

I first saw A Girl of the Limberlost at a gift shop in Shenandoah National Forest, and recently bought a copy of it.  Have any of you read anything by Gene Stratton Porter?  I love the way she combines fiction with nature in this book and will certainly be seeking out more of her work.  The heroine of the story is a young lady named Elnora who pays her way through school by gathering and selling moths in the forest and swamp near her home.  It’s a bit of a Cinderella story and who doesn’t love those?  I have hardly been able to put the book down since I started reading it last week.  It’s considered a classic, but is definitely an easy read.
