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’m knitting a sock.  A sock!  Assuming I follow through with these, this will be my first pair.  Seth requested socks nearly a year ago.  I found yarn in the perfect color (he doesn’t branch far from dark green) and bought it within days of the request.  I wound it months ago, but couldn’t get excited about socks for some reason.  This week I decided that I better start working on them.  A couple of inches in I started getting kind of excited.  The ribbing is so nice and stretchy and the color is so pretty.  I think I like knitting socks (well, a sock.)  I just hope that I can persevere through sock number two without becoming too bored.  The pattern is a free one, and I am using Muscadine sock yarn.

I picked up Sarah’s Key at the library today and I am already about halfway through. The story is a fictionalized account of events surrounding the great Velodrome d’Hiver roundup which took place in France in 1942. It’s a very sad book so far.
