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. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

I’m knitting the first sleeve on Larkspur’s Leksak, though last night I had to rip it back and start over.  I had gone up a needle size for the sleeve because last time I knit a Leksak, using this same yarn, my sleeve stitches looked too tight.  I do tend to knit more tightly on double points.  The jump from sevens to eights was too much though and the stitches looked loose and ugly.

We are under pressure to cut our grocery budget and I picked up a copy of Frugavore to see if there are any good ideas there.  I’m enjoying the book so far, although I haven’t yet reached the chapters that ought to contain practical advice.  This week I am cooking from a new (to me) Moosewood cookbook, Moosewood Restaurant Favorites.  I learned to cook in college using The Moosewood Cookbook and I am really liking Restaurant Favorites so far.  Last night I made a potato and cabbage soup that was easy, basic, and liked by everyone!

Knitting:  Larkspur’s Leksak.  I want to finish it asap!

Reading:  The latest Soul Gardening Journal.  So much goodness in this issue!  I’m also reading some Wilkie Collins short stories (After Dark:  six tales of murder, mystery, and intrigue…), after recently finishing My Lady’s Money.
