~ 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’ve been carting my big, bulky, yellow barn sweater around with me, working on the first sleeve. It’s more than halfway finished. I want to finish! But I’m also lured by other more exciting projects. We’ll see if I can persevere!
I’ve had a hard time shifting into Advent. I think mainly it’s that I’ve been sick, haven’t had the energy to pull boxes down, and do the clearing and cleaning I like to do in the early days of Advent. The house is a mess, the dryer was broken for over a week, and we’re drowning in laundry. Yesterday I made a start, and we have nativities out, baby Jesus hidden. I’m trying to catch up on Elizabeth’s highly anticipated Advent ebook. I think it will get me motivated and moving. I switched No Life for a Lady out for The Reed of God, more appropriate for the season. I thought I read it all last year, but according to my bookmark, I only made it halfway. This year, I’ll finish.
