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 settled into my old copy of  Pride and Prejudice.  I tend to forget much of what I read, so it doesn’t even feel like I am reading it for the second time.  I have also been reading through the Advent section of The Catholic Home.  I reread it every year at this time!

I decided that I must buckle down and finish knitting the socks that I started for Seth months and months ago.  I lost motivation when he declared them not long enough just when I thought I was ready to turn the heel on both.  I’ve got another inch to go on the second sock, and I will be ready again.  He wants knee socks.  I want to finish them in time to stuff them in his stocking this year.  However, I am secretly hoping that he won’t like them once they are finished, because then they will be mine!  I just love the yarn and the color!

  1. I haven’t joined you for Yarn Along in awhile (and didn’t this time either, but I am knitting a gnome doll for my son), but had to comment, because I happily read Pride & Prejudice earlier this year. Loved it. My copy is a really old hardback that includes the full collection of Jane Austen’s work. There was something so special just about that book itself.

  2. Wow, the colour of your yarn is wonderful, I love it !

  3. Oh my – what beautiful socks!!! I just adore the color.

    Also, thank you for hosting the Yarn Along again. It’s always a pleasure to join such an inspiring community of fellow fiber artists!

  4. That yarn really is the most gorgeous colour, I can see why you’d like the socks for you!

  5. I’ve wanted to join in this for ages, as I have seen it around a couple of blogs. But I have never been knitting and reading something at the same time. This time around I am though, so I am delighted to join in. Thank-you so much for hosting this, it really is quite fun! Off to check out some of the other blogs now!
