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.

  1. Gosh, I can’t get over that beautiful yarn.

    Urban farming is something I would so love to do. I’m a lover of country and city, so it just makes so much sense to me!

  2. MMM, that scarf is like a yummy hot chocolate!
    I’m playing too…

  3. Thank you for hosting Ginny, its been awhile since I’ve been able to link up. Feels good to be back.

  4. Love the yarn color! Its been a while, but I linked up little booties I sent in a care package to our baby girl!

  5. I am playing along for the first time!

  6. Thank you! I have recently come across your blog, and as I do craft for my shop, I have been wanting something to do and relax… as I don’t do a lot of knitting, your ‘yarn along’ is just what I needed. I am starting off with basics, and hopefully encouraging others to ‘give it a go’ . I have also linked your ‘yarn along’ to my post 🙂 Thanks again, and happy crafting, Jenny

  7. Your scarf is lovely, and looks like a book I’d enjoy–thanks for sharing! I’ve also been meaning to thank you for two of your other recommendations–the Francis books (which I did not know about–imagine that!–and my daughter and husband and I now LOVE) and Little Britches (just started it and also loving). Thanks for hosting yarn along–such wonderful inspiration–truly makes life brighter for so many (:

  8. Hi, I’ve just signed up for the yarn along. I think that it’s going to be such a great way for me to stay focused on a project and not start too many at once like I always do!!
    Thanks for hosting,

  9. Hi Ginny!
    I’ve just added my link and wanted to say thank-you so much for hosting this again!

    Have a lovely day!

  10. The colour of that yarn is lovely.

  11. I hadn’t heard of Farm City before. I will need to check it out!

  12. Oh my, you always knit with such beautiful yarn!

  13. Gosh, I love that scarf! You are going to be so excited when you finally have it finished! The color is just beautiful.

  14. I see what you mean about the color, it does look different. I can see the color changes in this picture. I’ve started something for a wee break from the feather and fan ghan, so truly relate to the time factor.
