Yarn Along

~ 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 feel like I am finally making some real progress on my shawl!  I am not on the brink of finishing it quite yet, but I think I’ll make my goal of mid-May.

I finished reading The Year of the Goat, and haven’t gotten started on a new book quite yet.  I have been spending a lot of time browsing through our new copy of Nature Anatomy. I have long been a fan of the author/illustrator Julia Rothman, having bought her Farm Anatomy years ago. I could spend hours looking through these books, and so could my kids!

  1. Your shawl is a beautiful colour.

  2. Your shawl is going to look quite lovely!

  3. My first time linking up! I just found this today and thought, “What a great idea! Books AND yarn.” I look forward to future Yarn-Alongs and seeing all the great projects others are working on and books they are reading.

  4. We LOVE that book so much!

    • Progress is always good news. I am still working on my husband’s sweater and have promised myself that I will not do another post on that until it is completely finished. Hopefully next week I will have it ready to share with all of you.

  5. How wonderful to be making progress on the shawl! I keep starting projects instead of finishing them…

  6. I loved Farm Anatomy! I’ll have to look for Nature Anatomy at the library, I know I’ll love that one too. 🙂

  7. We have that book- its the best, the illustrations are the best. I do so love that color and pattern- can’t wait to see it finished.

  8. This book looks amazing! I must have it for my shop. How beautiful. 🙂 Lovely progress on the shawl.

  9. I have both Farm Anatomy and Nature Anatomy in my cart, I need to get them to my home!
    Have fun knitting your shawl, it’s beautiful Ginny.

  10. I do love that blue!!! and books that a family loves and returns to, how wonderful!!! Wishing you a day with moments of peace for you as a busy Mother and knitter of beautiful things!!! God bless you!

  11. So technically it isn’t a ‘yarn’ project but I joined in anyway. I do have a shawl I’m knitting next with my first ever Madtosh yarn, so yummy I cannot wait to begin!

  12. We love the book “Farm Anatomy” and actually gave a copy out to nieces and nephews for Christmas one year. I didn’t know about this “Nature Anatomy.” Uh oh…

  13. I see lots of blue in today’s shared posts…must be all that blue sky! Happy knitting, Ginny. Hope you find all the time you need to finish your shawl. 🙂

I love to hear from you!
