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! ~

This little gown is now all finished and blocked, just waiting for buttons.  May I confess that I am feeling bored with knitting baby things?  I have lots of projects swimming around in my mind now and will probably not knit anything else for the new baby until I determine a specific need.  Maybe more baby socks; those are fun.

I’ve been meaning to read The Dirty Life for years, as it’s been very highly recommended.  I finally picked up a copy at the library this week because it was on display near the checkout counter.  I am loving it, especially the descriptions of all the different people in the story.  The author’s description of her parents meeting her future husband’s parents for the first time was hilarious…if you’ve read the book, you know what I’m talking about!  I just love reading about people who are so different being brought together and how they react to each other.  I realize that the book is about a couple’s first year of farming together, but these other aspects of the story are what make it so good in my opinion.
