~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me every Wednesday to share a single photo of what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Share your photo on your blog, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us!~
I’m almost finished with the little hat I’m knitting for Beatrix from some of my indigo dyed yarn. I made up the pattern as I went, and I think it worked out, though I won’t know for sure until I work the decreases.
I bought a copy of The Shepherd’s Life: Modern Dispatches from an Ancient Landscape for Jonny and me for Christmas, and I’ve been reading it, and liking it thus far. But for some reason, I decided that I needed to pull My Antonia of the shelf the other night, and I am spending more time reading it (for the third time I think). My Antonia is my favorite book by Willa Cather, who is probably my favorite author. I just love it. If you haven’t read it, and you are making a 2016 reading list, you should add it to your list!
Best wishes to you all in the new year!! I hope it’s full of knitting and good books (and lots of other good things as well, of course!)
