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 had hoped to be finished with Beatrix’s Bulle by the end of the weekend, but I’m not quite there yet.  I am almost finished with the first pocket though, so that just leaves one more to go plus a bit of finishing work.  I can’t wait to dress my girls in their matching sweaters!  They are very excited too because they are still at an age that they like to match as often as possible.  Otherwise, for my own sake, I would probably have chosen different colorways for each of them.  I love the amber trinket, but it’s a bit much (for me) to knit the same pattern twice in the exact same yarn!  The Bulle pattern is a lot of fun, so as far as knitting something twice goes (and in the same color,) this was the perfect project though.

I am reading a book that is not my usual sort of reading material.  I actually understand all the words in this one.  The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie has been sitting on my shelf for months, passed to me by a friend.  My Aunt Genie has been recommending the Flavia de Luce mystery books to me, so I thought I would finally read this.
