~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 each month and share what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Post your photo(s) on your blog or on Instagram (#yarnalong) and then share a link below to either your blog or Instagram post!~ (this post contains affiliate links.)
I was aiming to finish my Flora Cardi by Easter Sunday, and almost made it. It’s blocking now, and once it’s dry I need to sew a couple small seams and finish the sleeve cuffs and it will be finished. I’m not sure it’s going to fit well, but I’m hoping it is wearable!
I am so glad to be able to work on other projects now. I have several things planned, and right now I am working on another Antarktis shawl. I’ve knit it twice before and gave both shawls away. I may keep this one!
I’m not reading any fiction right now outside of what I’m reading to my kids, but I have been spending a few minutes first thing in the morning reading No Man is an Island. I think this is the longest I’ve gone in years without picking up some sort of fiction to read to myself. I’m reading Calico Bush to my girls at bedtime right now, and we love it so much. I sit reading to them each night until my throat hurts! Maybe as long as I am enjoying what I’m reading to my kids, I don’t feel the need for my own fiction read. Or maybe I’m just too tired when I get in bed at night to read to myself! Silas is really obsessed with mushrooms right now, so I’ve also been reading some to him from a vintage Golden Guide I bought him for Easter.
