~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading. 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, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
I had a stupid knitting week. I spent more than an hour ripping back a few rows of this blue shawl, stitch by stitch, because I thought my stitch count was off by one stitch. Finally, I realized that actually I had missed a “K1” in the instructions at the end of a row. I had been on the right track all along, there was no mistake to begin with. Knitting backwards is always a little demoralizing. Realizing that you did so for no reason, during a week when knitting time was slim…well, actually I wasn’t that upset about it. I’m preoccupied right now: planting my garden, and doing other things. I don’t have to accomplish tons of knitting every week.
I am having major reading issues. I must be reading six books or so. Most of them are books that can be read here and there, a little at a time, but still. I started reading The Hardest Peace yesterday, and I think that I may end up reading it monogamously until I finish it.
