~ 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 started reading Nurse Matilda to my kids this week.  I didn’t read this book as a child, and only happened upon it at the library, picking it up because the illustrations on the cover appealed to me.  My kids were immediately won over by the fact that the storyline seems to revolve around a family who has a very large number of very naughty children.  They all died with laughter throughout the first chapter alone.  The problem I am having is that Seth and Keats are both sneaking away with the book during the day and reading ahead.  Then Seth wants to share snippets of the story with everyone else, but we don’t want him to spoil it for us!  I don’t want either boy reading ahead because I want us all to hear the story at the same time!  I should hide it….

I’m still knitting on my Small Things Romper this week, working on the legs first and then I’ll go back up and knit the arms.  I really like this pattern and think it will be wonderfully practical this winter.
