~ 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! ~
I was forced to set aside my scarf this week because Larkspur has a birthday coming up and she requested a hat. I don’t mind making sacrifices like that, because that is just what knitting moms do. But seriously, I do hope I can bring myself to pick that scarf up again. I maybe need to knit another 12 inches which isn’t that big of a deal. Larkspur borrows my Jane hat frequently and it fits her perfectly, so that is what I am knitting for her. Digging through my stash I found one last skein of Madelinetosh in amber trinket (have I mentioned the fact that I have only been knitting from my stash for over six months? maybe even longer than that.) This colorway is so pretty on Larkspur and I am sure she will love the hat, especially because it is like mine.
I finished Farm City. It was a good read. The author has a blog, and it is neat to see pictures of her urban farm after reading about it! I’ve picked up Homegrown and Handmade again. Evidently someone else requested it at the library because I couldn’t renew it. This one is a keeper, so I guess I’ll have to buy it! It really is full of good information in a not too overwhelming format. One of you asked last time I mentioned it what that animal is on the cover. It’s some sort of sheep! It’s odd looking, isn’t it? Jonny has spent the last few evenings reading How to Eat Fried Worms to the kids and they have LOVED it. My boys especially found it to be hilarious. I can’t remember if I read this one when I was a kid or not.
