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 a scarf.  I feel like I’ve been knitting this scarf forever, and I have only just passed the halfway mark.  I really want to cast on for a sweater for myself.  But first I must finish this scarf.  I must.

In more exciting news, Jonny and I are fighting over Homegrown & Handmade.  Not really, we’re pretty good at taking turns.  But we are both reading it.  The title pretty much sums up the content of the book.  It’s a nice “big picture” sort of book with chapters covering a large range of topics, and really just touching the surface on each.  It’s sort of a springboard book, one you read to help decide what topics you want to really delve deeply into.  Jonny and I love everything and want to do everything.  We’ve always had that problem.
