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! ~


Thanks to baseball games and Monday’s road trip, I am almost finished with my Seashore Cowl!  I was afraid I’d never pick it up again after all the baby knits, so I am pretty happy about this turn of events.  I also finished reading The Devil’s Advocate (I do believe there will be more Morris West in my future) and started reading The Queen Must Die.  I’m in the mood for bees right now.

  1. Hi Ginny,

    Have you ever read The Keeper of the Bees by Gene Stratton-Porter. Lovely, lovely book!

  2. Hello, I joining in for Yarn Along with some mittens and my latest book. I’m going to add your book to my sadly long list of reads to get to someday. 🙂

  3. The Cowl is delightful. I am crocheting a Cowl this week with a (hopefully) stitch i have never mastered before. Thanks for hosting Yarn Along.
    Sharon. 🙂

  4. Cowl is beautiful! I’ll race ya’! I have a scarf I have been working on for almost two years I think…..but I am down to a mere few rows!

  5. So pretty! I love the colors and how delicate it looks.

  6. Gorgeous cowl. the colours are perfect.

  7. the cowl is gorgeous Ginny, I’m not in a space to knit complex patterns at the moment, but maybe soon!

  8. That looks like an interesting book, bees are fascinating little things! Your cowl is beautiful, I love the colours you’ve chosen. Julie 🙂

  9. Oh gorgeous! I love the color of that cowl!

  10. The Cowl is looking so pretty- love the colours. I have finished the jumper I was making, succumbed to a kindle and reading a Must for all Agatha Christie fans!

  11. Ginny,
    Your seashore cowl is so pretty.
    I look forward to hearing how you like that bee book. I read Sue Hubbell’s A Book of Bees because you spoke so highly of it and I really enjoyed reading it.


  12. Those are really pretty colours and go beautifully well with the pattern.

  13. Have a nice week everyone!!!

  14. Now that is an interesting combination of colors, I love the look of it.

  15. Love the colors of your knitting!

  16. The colors of your knitting are utterly divine, Ginny.

  17. Looks great and really good colours! I’ve been worried about bees in our world and find myself thinking I should pray more than I am for them…

  18. Such gorgeous lace knitting. Thanks for the eye candy!

  19. The book you are reading sounds great, but since I am mostly learning scripture right now, I had best not confuse myself lol. Lovely yarn for the cowl. xxx

  20. *Love*–the colors, the pattern. Oh, it looks sumptuous!

  21. Wow that is just so beautiful Ginny. About your last post, God has a plan for your family and the right home is out there for you.

  22. I sure love the colors of that cowl-so soft looking!

  23. Beautiful colors and lace!

  24. your cowl looks lovely, i really like the color combo.

  25. That is a cool-sounding book. Thanks for sharing!

  26. Your cowl is beautiful. I like the different colorways and yarns used. I hope you will show a pic after blocking.

  27. That looks like it will be a comfy knit! I love finishing projects, especially ones that seem to drag on- so satisfying!

  28. Bee reading sounds wonderful! Have a lovely day Ginny!!

  29. Love those colors! I hope you are all well.

  30. Oh Ginny! You’r shawl is coming along so beautifully! It’s like you can see the softness and drape through the computer screen.
