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 continue to persevere through this scarf.  I am amazed at how long it is, yet still too short.  I am happy that I finally got a photo that I think accurately portrays the color.

Last week I picked up a copy of Farm City at the library last and I am really enjoying it.  The author is a good storyteller and she has interesting stories to tell.  She is an urban farmer living in what sounds like a dangerous area of Oakland, California.  She raises a garden on an empty lot along with chickens, bees, ducks, rabbits, and even a turkey.  I’m not quite halfway through the book, but so far it’s a good read.  I have very little in common with the author beyond a love for growing things, but I think that’s part of what makes the book appealing.

also-I saw this on Facebook, and want to pass along that that Maya is having a really good sale on all the yarn in her Springtree Road Etsy shop:  25% off with code LOVE25.  The discount is good through Sunday.
