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 really meant to finish those baby pants before starting another project, but I got distracted by some pretty yarn and decided to cast on a new project with it right away.  Sometimes I think that’s the best thing to do.  Yarn that I go crazy over at first, left to sit on a shelf for too long, loses its appeal.  I think that must be part of the whole “stash” thing.  Stash yarn has a tendency to become either too precious or too boring.

So I cast on another baby gown.  This time in a beautiful blue-gray colorway from Orange Flower Yarn called Vega.  I really didn’t mean to buy it, but I was having a bad day and it happened to be on sale at the moment….

I’m still reading Hannah Coulter, but I’ve also been pulling my old standby books on childbirth down off the shelf this week:  Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year, Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth, and Herbal Healing for Women.  I do a combination of reading through, reminding myself of this or that, while simultaneously trying not to think too much about it all so I don’t get nervous.  Because yes, I still get nervous about having babies and this one’s coming soon.
