~ 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! ~
In addition to finishing the purple shawl, I’ve been knitting little swatches all week, inspired by a really lovely single skein of yarn from my stash (starbright in the tea rose colorway.) I have a picture in my mind that I’m hoping I can bring to life.
When I took this photo, I wasn’t thinking of Yarn Along. I had just finished reading this precious book to my girls and noticed that it matched my knitting. We are kind of maxed out on space in our little house, and I rarely buy picture books these days, instead doing my best to take advantage of the library. But this book, The Goat Lady, about an elderly woman who keeps a flock of goats and is embraced by her community despite initial misgivings, is a real keeper. The paintings that illustrate the story are beautiful. It’s just an all around wonderful book.
