~ 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! ~
This week I have been reading mainly non-fiction. I am toying with the idea of trying to read all of Elizabeth Zimmerman’s books this year. But really, if I even read one of them cover to cover, I’ll be happy with that. I own several and right now am reading her Knitter’s Almanac. I love all the little anecdotes that she writes, and that even reading through her patterns is interesting.
After mentioning a book here about frugal organic eating that I was reading recently, one of you recommended Wildly Affordable Organic, saying that you liked it better. Yes, it is better! There is more useful information in this book, in my opinion. I have it out from the library, but may end up buying it.
I’ve also read the first few chapters of Ken Ludwig’s How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare this week, just enough to get us started. I’m excited to start studying Shakespeare with my kids! I plan to include everyone Seth down to Beatrix. I’ll let you know how it goes and if we stick with it!
I’m knitting a ribbed hat for my brother-in-law, and I’m almost finished with it. You really do have to just power through when you are knitting ribbing round and round for what feels like forever. It makes such a nice snug hat though, so it’s worth it.
