~ 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 started knitting furiously on my Tess of D’Urbervilles shawl during the snow storm, and I haven’t stopped. I took it off the needles at one point to figure out how big it was and how many rows I needed to knit to get it to the size I want (I’m knitting at a tighter gauge than the pattern calls for, so I need more pattern repeats.) And then I decided that I should add some stripes, so I dug some scraps out of my stash. The addition of some color has made knitting the last of this shawl so much fun! I’ve been neglecting other things to work on it, which is kind of okay right now because we are taking all these snow days.
I’m still reading The Shepherd’s Life, and I still love it. So much to think about!
