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 cast on a baby blanket last week, and it is going fast!  I’m using aran weight yarn:  two skeins of organic Australian merino from Sweet Basil, and then another three of the same that are undyed.  I thought that I would dye those three skeins, but Jonny suggested leaving them white, and I agreed that would probably be best.  This yarn is very, very soft, but not a superwash, so maybe not the most practical choice for a baby blanket.  But, since I had it in my stash, for me it was the obvious choice.  I don’t mind taking special care of it.

I finished reading The Keeper of the Bees last night.  What should I read next?
