Yarn Along

~ 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!~

Last week I finished The Blue Castle, and rediscovered No Life for a Lady.  I have way too many books stacked on my desk, and it had gotten buried.  I am about halfway through it now, and love it.  I think that Jonny and my older boys will probably want to read this one too.  It is in the same vein as High, Wide and Lonesome: Growing Up on the Colorado Frontier, and Little Britches.

After making several late night mistakes on my legwarmers, I picked up an abandoned knitting project.  I completed the first of these mitts many months ago, and am now working to get the second one finished.

  1. I;d never have made it in the Pioneer days

  2. I always enjoy seeing the yarn you are using, you have good taste – it looks so soft and good quality. I’d quite like to squish it, but America’s a long way from England just to see some yarn!

  3. I just finished this book a couple weeks ago! I found it very interesting. I have The Blue Castle on my reading pile right now. I have so many book recommendations coming my way that the pile is just too big!

  4. The book sounds interesting. I started a hat today and made a mistake early on and had to frog over half of it! Such a silly mistake too.
    I adore the colour of your mittens.

  5. Pretty mitts! It’s getting to be mitt weather around here as I’m starting to get ice-cold-mouse-hand syndrome.
    The book looks fascinating. Would you say it is suitable for children/young people?

  6. You always have the most interesting books! And I love that yarn. Great color.

  7. Thank you for hosting, always lovely to see what you are working on! xx

    Love your mitts. Your knitting always looks PERFECT! I knit some gloves for my daughter a couple of years ago with that same color (at least that’s what it looks like on my computer) and she loved them.

  9. Such a beautiful colour yarn, quite striking. Thank you for hosting.

  10. love the mittens! sounds like a good book! God give you strength!

  11. beautiful mitts Ginny, and I love the color 🙂 I’m furiously working on some secret knitting and I hope by the end of this week I’ll be done, fingers crossed.

  12. That yarn is a gorgeous shade, love the pattern design too 🙂

  13. What a stunning shade of green!

  14. I wonder why I have not read High, Wide & Lonesome? I grew up in Colorado. While not on the flatland, I grew up in the mountains which, when I look back on it was an amazing childhood.

  15. Pretty pattern and pretty yarn for your mitts Ginny.
    My boys loved Little Britches.

  16. Three cheers for knitting mittens this season. I love the earthy green!

I love to hear from you!
