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 finished reading the Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie this week, and thought it was a fun book.  I’m really not into mysteries though, so probably won’t read any more in the series.  For those that do enjoy light mysteries, this series is hugely popular!  A few weeks back a friend mentioned to me The Brothers Karamazov being one of her favorite novels, and I’ve been wanting to read it ever since.  I recently bought a copy and got started this week.  This book is somewhere around 900 pages long, so it will take me some time to read it.  I get characters mixed up in longer foreign novels with unfamiliar names, and often forget them all together.  So, I am writing down each new character as they are mentioned along with a few notes in a journal to help me.  Between that though and the sheer heaviness of the book, I need something else to read for those times I can’t use both hands to support the book (The main time that I have to read:  while I am nursing Silas.)  I just started to reread Pride and Prejudice.  I think my book club might be reading it for January, and it only takes one hand to hold it.

I cast on a Sunday Sweater for my local yarn store last night.  I am pleasantly surprised by the Berroco Vintage yarn that the yarn store owner chose.  It’s nice and soft and so far I really like it!  I am finished with both of the girls’ Bulles.  Hopefully I will get pictures to share next week!

To my U.S. readers, happy Thanksgiving!  We have friends joining us tomorrow and I am cooking a bunch of weird stuff like faux mashed potatoes (from cauliflower!)
