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 totally caved.  Thinking about a friend who has a baby due in a couple of months, I felt that it was an emergency that I knit something for her.  Nevermind the stark contrast between the fingering weight shawl and a worsted weight cardigan for a newborn.  I am closer to finishing the shawl.  Sixteen rows to go I believe, and truly I do love that pattern (and am a little sad that the shawl is actually not for me!)  Saturday I had an hour or two to spare and I found this cute pattern, the baby vertebrae.  I remembered a bare skein of yarn that Genevieve gave me with an order…and the next thing I knew I was dyeing it a nice raspberry pink.  Now that I’ve got this cute little cardigan started, I think I can go back to the shawl and finish it up.

I picked up a book about the Duggar family at the library this week and just finished reading it.  I’ve never seen their television show before and this is the first I’ve read about them.  I really enjoyed reading about their family and the way they do things. I think I’ll read their new book as well.
