~ 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’m working on the second mosaic band on my Emiliana shawl. This is seriously such a fun knit! I am knitting it in sport weight wool at a bigger gauge than the pattern calls for (? not sure if that’s how to describe it-less stitches per inch) so it is going pretty quickly for me.
I am reading a book that I have been anticipating for a while now, Hallie Lord’s On the Other Side of Fear. I met Hallie last year at the Edel Gathering, and knew I liked her. Now, reading her book, I realize we are two peas in a pod. I struggle with worry and fear and her words are just what I needed to read right now. I pre-ordered a copy weeks ago, and then Hallie surprised me by sending me a copy too. So, I have an extra! I’d love to send it to one of you. Just mention it in the comments if you’d like to read it, and I’ll randomly select a winner before next week’s Yarn Along. (U.S. only please!)
