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’m knitting another hat!  Gabriel keeps his hair very short, and his head gets cold.  He has several hats, but they go missing, so I decided to knit him another.  I am using leftover yarn from Jonny’s arm warmers and Gabe is really happy about that.  It’s kind of a grown-up colorway I think.  He was very alarmed though when he saw the pink yarn I used for the provisional cast on!  I assured him that it was only temporary, and I think he breathed a sigh of relief when I removed it this afternoon. I’m not following a specific pattern, just a basic ribbed hat.

I’m still reading My Antonia, so I thought I would share a couple of my kids’ favorites right now.  We have The Story Blanket from the library.  It’s a lovely story and it’s about knitting!  The girls have requested it over and over.

Seth read the entire Redwall series (all 22 books!) over the past two months or so.  He loved them so much that he wants to turn around and read them all over again.  We have The Redwall Cookbook out from the library now.  According to my boys, the book is divided seasonally with a story and recipes for each season.  The illlustrations are really beautiful as well.  We’ll be buying this book I’m sure, because I’ve never seen my kids so excited about recipes before!  Seth and Keats follow me around reading ingredient lists to me.  The recipes are full of good sounding things, all vegetarian with the exception of a bit of seafood.  This really is a great companion to the Redwall books!
