~ 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 The Snake Pit last week, and decided to take a break before reading the final two books in the Master of Hestviken series. A friend sent me a link to an article about Beverly Cleary turning 100, and it mentioned that the book on her nightstand at the time she was interviewed was Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight. I figured that if she’s reading it, I might like it too. I am about halfway through and can say that it is a fascinating look at the author’s childhood, but as many childhood memoirs are, it’s heartbreaking as well.
I finished my first wildflower sock, and cast on the next, but then took a break to knit a pair of rainbow prayer socks for a friend’s daughter, in the tradition of my friend, Elizabeth. I finished them last night, and they are really cute! Details are in my Ravelry notes.
Tracey has baby shower details on her blog this week! She is kindly hosting an online baby shower for me during next Wednesday’s Yarn Along. Thank you!
