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 read An Invisible Thread this week, and really liked it.  It is the story of an “unlikely” friendship between the author, a busy executive, and a young boy whom she meets one day when he is out panhandling and asks her for change.  They end up becoming lifelong friends, and it is a great story, a hopeful one.

I began the task of reworking portions of Silas’ brown sweater.  I have added a bit of length to the hood and the body, and now need to redo that tricky button band.  Somehow, posting about his sweater last week gave me the push I needed to get started.  I am also working on several baby projects.  Maybe I can share some of them later this week!

(I couldn’t resist putting Em-Em in my photo!)

Just the flowers

Because yesterday, five o’clock saw me curled into a sobbing ball on my bed.  Sick mama, some kids not at their best, etc. etc.  I won’t bore you with details.  Just the flowers today, a bit of yarn, and a snapshot of the brief moment I spent knitting on the porch last week.  Much nicer than yesterday.
