Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading (though not at the same time!), and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr.

It’s been a slightly frustrating knitting week.  I kind of wish I didn’t start this sweater for Job, bur rather had focused all my efforts on finishing Larkspur’s Leksak.  I made a silly mistake (as in, I didn’t read the pattern directions) and ended up having to rip the yoke out just before I reached the point to divide for the sleeves.  So what you see is my second attempt to pay attention to simple directions.  I think the sweater is going to be really cute, so I am pushing forward despite the fact that Job really doesn’t need another sweater!

I think around half a dozen people have recommended Katy Bowman to me, so I purchased her book, Alignment Matters.  Just reading her introduction has gotten me really excited!  She makes sense.  Maybe there’s hope for my poor bones?

I’m looking for my next fiction read.  I need something HAPPY.

DSC_2355 Job turns one in early November.  He’ll be devastated if he doesn’t receive hand knits, and may assume that I love him less because he’s number seven. (Ha!) So, I am thinking that I better get to work on some birthday gifts.

I’m using some stashed Cestari wool for a Leaves or not, which might not be the best yarn choice, but it’s what I have (I love Cestari, but the traditional wool isn’t quite as soft as I prefer for baby knits, and my gauge is questionable.)  I am also ambitiously hoping to knit one of these super cute dolls that Meryl posted about a couple weeks ago.  I’m not sure that Job would care about it, I just want to knit it!!

I’m almost finished reading What is the What.  It’s an amazing book.
