Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, 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. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

20140415-DSC_4558My gauge swatch lied.  (LIED!)  Bea’s new sweater barely fits, meaning that it will definitely be too small by next fall.  I guess I should be comforted by the fact that I decided to have her try it on before I got any further.  But, really I’m not.   It’s been a stressful week and ripping out my knitting is not what I need right now.  (My voice got steadily higher in pitch toward the end of that sentence.)  So I haven’t ripped it out yet, I’ve just started a new sweater with my other ball of yarn and will unravel the other when I am feeling calmer.  {{{SIGH}}}

With spring here (nevermind last night’s freeze!) Jonny and I can’t stop talking honeybees and gardening.  We’re making big plans.  I borrowed Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre from a friend last week, and I am reading Michael Bush’s The Practical Beekeeper Volume I Beginning Beekeeping Naturally again.  It’s making far more sense now than the last time I read it.  Moving into our third year keeping bees, I feel like I have little brain pegs (keyword: little) to hang the information on.

Reading:  The Dollmaker, recommended by a friend.  It is well reviewed and considered a “landmark of American fiction.”  What got me was this phrase from the description, speaking of the main character, “her triumphant ability to create beauty in the suffocating shadow of ugliness and despair.”20140402-20140402-DSC_3230 Thank you all so much for making my Seashore Cowl Raffle such a huge success!
