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! ~

Knitting:ย  A Small Things Romper in Quince & Co. Lark yarn (twig colorway)

Reading:ย  A wonderful book that I received as a gift last week, Atchafalaya Housebout.ย  I’m trying to read it slowly.ย  I love it.

    Thank you for sharing. I just read a snippet from the book on amazon. I am downloading the book to my kindle now. It sounds amazing. (& I live in South Louisiana lol)

  3. Ginny, how long have you been knitting? I am currently learning but am finding it challenging. My cast on is ugly and I am having issues with tension. I am determined to learn though! Any pointers would be great. Thanks!

    • I have been knitting regularly for about six years. I recommend finding someone local to help you! Do you have a local yarn store? They often offer lessons.

  4. I love that yarn color! Can’t wait to check out the book-I need a new read!

  5. Your romper is beautiful. Love the pattern and the yarn. Big fan of Quince & Co. Blessed babe will be well warmed this fall. The book has been added to my list. ๐Ÿ™‚ hope you are having a good day and have a little down time to put your feet up. You’re an awesome mama.

  6. Ginny, LOVE to color of that little romper! Thanks for hosting another great party.


  7. Ginny,
    I want to read that book. I’m glad you mentioned it.


  8. I love that little sweater, it’s adorable. At first when I saw “small things” I thought that you were the designer!
    Lovely wool too, I’ve yet to try quince & co, but I hope to find a project worthy of buying some soon!

  9. This was one of the things I was supposed to knit for my boy, but never got around to it. I can’t wait to see how this one turns out!

  10. Oh my goodness that romper is adorable. Love the yarn color. I am hoping you feel better soon. Pregnancy can be tough, but the reward is great. Hang in there, Ginny.

  11. I love the gray for your romper! I think a romper might be in the near future for my baby – little one piece outfits are one of my favorite choices for babies.
    Thanks for hosting Yarn Along. I wrote on my post this week that it really is a highlight of my week at home with my kids. I can’t really explain it except I feel a kinship with other women as I follow their links and get glimpses of their lives (including yours).

  12. Lovely yarn! Hang in there ~ I know things are so busy for you!

  13. That book looks interesting. You always pick such wonderful colors–that romper is adorable. I โ™ฅ babies!

  14. I want to knit a romper for the next little one I have. They are so cute!

  15. Thank you for sharing about a book you love!

  16. I just read the description for the book, Ginny, and it sounds so very good. I wonder how you found it?

    Read lots, its the perfect time of year for it and I hope you can find a comfortable position for your body that is doing so much right now.

  17. Oooh! I love the project bag!

  18. cute romper!!!! (love the bag!)

  19. love the gray and the yellow paired together, it would make a great shawl! Now that book sounds intriguing if you love it ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy knitting, hope your back feels better by now, don’t over do it.

  20. I love the yarn from Quince and Co. So very soft! Enjoy your book ๐Ÿ™‚
