~ 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 am really motivated to finish my Jet Stream shawl, so once again I set aside my Follow Your Arrow shawl this week. I am starting the fourth and largest section of my Jet Stream and am hoping to finish it soon enough to get a little bit of use out of it before the weather warms up. If not, I’ll have it to look forward to next fall!
I’m reading To Kill a Mockingbird. Maybe I should just stop right there and not write another word, because many if not most of you know how good this book is. I was just commenting to a friend the other night that it’s really too bad that kids end up reading To Kill a Mockingbird in middle or high school because most probably won’t read it again as adults. Of course I immediately contradicted myself when I mentioned wondering if Seth is ready to read it yet. (He’s not.) While I remember liking it when I read it as a teen, I didn’t appreciate it in the same way that I do now. Being in the middle of it, I am pretty deeply in love right now, having strong urges to tell everyone I know that it’s my favorite book now and they need to pick it up and read it too. Thankfully, my book club is reading with me, so I’ll have friends to discuss it with in a couple of weeks. If you haven’t read it, read it! If you haven’t read it since you were a kid, read it again! I’ve been earmarking pages with favorite quotes. Here’s one from Calpurnia: “It’s not necessary to tell all you know.” That is just so true.
