Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading (though not at the same time!), 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! ~

When I took this photo yesterday, I was worried that I was going to run out of yarn.ย  Thankfully, I finished the second sleeve on Job’s birthday sweater with a little bit of yarn to spare.ย  I’m not doing much reading on my own this week, but I have been reading The Light Princess to my older kids.ย  They think it’s hilarious.

  5. Adorable! I’m knitting bright purple fingerless gloves for my 14 YO. Reading? Chemistry. We homeschool.

  6. Your sweater is beautiful. I love the yarn color.

  7. Love the sweater. I knit one very similar (in a very similar color) for my son about a year ago. It made me smile.

  8. I like the sample of this book from Amazon! Have you ever read ‘Five Children and It’ by E. Nesbit? I think it’s very funny read aloud to children and a good teaching book for truthfulness.

  9. Cute little sweater and I just LOVE George McDonald.

  10. I love the sweater – adorable for sure! I will have to get that book to read to my children as well. We are always on the look out for good read alouds. Love it when I see one online that another family is enjoying!

  11. I haven’t read that book but it looks really fun. I read I Like Giving this week. It is an amazing, inspiring book. I think you’d like it.

  12. yay and whew for enough yarn!!! :)))) it is looking lovely. MacDonald is fun… ๐Ÿ™‚ I took a class on just him in my undergrad years…
