~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me every Wednesday to share a single photo of what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Share your photo on your blog, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
I finished reading Rebecca last week, and while I was very sucked into the story, I do have to agree with a comment one of you left last week, that it’s dark and depressing. It didn’t actually depress me, but it certainly isn’t a happy book. I guess that’s why it’s considered a Gothic novel? It’s suspensful and creepy and people love it, but it is kind of a downer. I don’t know that I’ll read anything else by Daphne Du Marier. Who am I kidding? I probably will.
I checked out Never Cry Wolf from the library for Seth, when searching for another Farley Mowat book for my younger kids. When I got home, Seth informed me that he already owns this book and read it ages ago. Oops! Now I’m reading it for something quite different from my most recent reads.
I finished my baby knits and just have to sew buttons on the little Mary Jane’s. I also started another shawl, because I have to always be knitting multiple shawls I guess. I’ll share pictures and details on that later this week. I’ve worked a few rows on my Barn Sweater as well. As we approach fall I feel myself being pulled in lots of different knitting directions. There are so many things I want to knit! I am hoping that once we settle into a homeschooling rhythm I’ll have more time for knitting. That may or may not be wishful thinking.
