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 for a simple ribbed hat for Jonny a couple of days before Job was born.  Jonny really needs another hat, and I wanted a simple, small project to have on hand in the days after the baby’s birth.  My urge to knit has been minimal though over the past week, so it’s just a few stitches here and a few there, which is exactly what I had in mind.  I’m still reading Angle of Repose.  It’s a great book, and I have passed the halfway mark, but it is heavy and making my fingers hurt just to hold it!  I think I am almost ready to buy a Kindle (maybe this one.)  I don’t know why I am having such a hard time taking the plunge.  I guess I just can’t imagine reading on an electronic device rather than reading a real live book.   And books are so much prettier!  But my right thumb is killing me, and I seem to choose long heavy books lately.
