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! ~

I’ve had very little time for knitting in the past week, which is difficult, but true.  I’ve only managed to work on Keats’ vest because it is mindless round and round knitting.  He, by the way, isn’t helping me with it as I had hoped he would.  It’s baseball season, and I guess he’s preoccupied.  I’ve got three skeins of gorgeous Madelinetosh wound and ready for a new project, but just can’t seem to get started.  I am also working on something very practical and frugal for Seth’s upcoming birthday, but I’ll keep that a secret (Seth reads my blog.)  Really he knows about it, but I am pretending that he doesn’t.

I am absolutely loving Far From the Madding Crowd despite the fact that there are frequently words if not entire sentences that I don’t understand.  With reading time precious and spare, who has time to grab a dictionary every other minute?  Not I.  I get the big picture, and that’s what counts.

  1. I love the colours in your vest. I’m sharing some finished hats for the grandchildren today. I’ve just finished reading Evans Above by Rhys Bowen, a series about a policeman in Wales.

  2. I came to your site from someone else joining the yarn along and thought I might join too with adding the first knitting post to my blog 🙂 Next week I know that it is Wednesdays so I might also update again!
    Keep the good work up with knitting, your blog and probably even more important, your kids 😉

  3. I totally get how busy life can get. I really love this project you are working on. The yarn is great. I love varigated yarn! I have had “Far From the Maddening Crowd” on my “to read” shelf for some time so thanks for the recommendation! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  4. Joining you again with Salman Rushdi and another Milo…
    Love from Austria,
