~ 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! ~
The stack of five or more books that I am somehow reading now is sure evidence that the past week has been a bit intense schedule wise. My focus is all over the place. I am still reading At Knit’s End in bits and pieces, which I am sure is how it’s meant to be read. I read an unschooling book that I picked up from the library in a little over an hour one evening after putting Silas to bed. I wasn’t particularly inspired by it. I don’t think I am part of the audience that the book was targeting. I am still reading Project Based Homeschooling (that one is good.) And finally I bought a copy of How to Raise Good Catholic Children last week, and after reading the first chapter, I love it.
I am almost finished with the first sleeve of Beatrix’s orange Sunday sweater. Hopefully the sweater will be finished in a few more days. To be honest, I don’t like the color. This shade of orange isn’t my favorite, and while it doesn’t show up in the photograph there are murky brownish areas that just aren’t pretty. But, we dyed this yarn ourselves, Beatrix wanted a sweater in it, and I needed to knit my pattern one more time. Hopefully I can make the pattern available to you all very soon.
One last little thing, in case you missed the post yesterday and like to cross stitch: together with a friend I am hosting a Winterwoods ABCs cross stitch sampler stitch along. Details are in this post.
