~ 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’ve worked on clue 5B of my Follow Your Arrow shawl all week, and I am on row 99. That is row 99 of 661. The knitting is fun, but it’s pay attention knitting, so that means I can only work on it at night. This may take me awhile.
I just started reading The Beekeeper’s Apprentice. I don’t typically read mystery novels, and I can’t remember how I first came across this one. The title and cover must have appealed to me. My oldest son, Seth, is a big fan of Sherlock Holmes and this book is the first in a series featuring him, and a teenaged sidekick named Mary Russell. If the cover and title weren’t enough, the first sentence on the back of the book would have sucked me in, “In 1915, Sherlock Holmes is retired and quietly engaged in the study of honeybees….” It goes on to use words and phrases such as “brilliant deductions,” “disguises,” and “dangers.” It’s all so interesting I couldn’t resist.
