~ 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 year Beatrix asked for an orange sweater. I got so far as buying the yarn. Seeing me dyeing orange yarn last month with tickseed sunflowers, she asked me if I would dye some for her sweater. I reminded her that I bought her orange yarn last year. I pulled it out and showed her. It’s a pretty heathered orange, kind of muted and woodsy. She gave it a “blech.” I realized that if I am going to take the time to knit this orange sweater, then I might as well dye yarn in the color she really wants. So we went flower picking and dyed some yarn for her sweater. Of course, then she rejected my pattern suggestions. What she wants is a repeat of this sweater. I hate repeats! Boring!!! But Beatrix wins. I cast on this orange Sunday Sweater a few days ago, and she wants it finished by the end of the month. Demanding? Yes. I’m not sure I can make that deadline. I am very distracted by Mabel and several other knitting projects, but I’m going to try.
I am between books…leaning towards a Wilkie Collins next.
