~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.)
My knitting isn’t much to show this week. I started a new project, a cowl, and then realized that my gauge was way off, so now I am swatching. I avoid swatching when I can (irresponsible knitter), but this is a new yarn to me, and I need to learn how it behaves on my needles.
I finished Middlemarch, ending up mostly listening to the audiobook, and I loved it. Now I’m watching the miniseries. In my last post, I asked people to guess what audiobook I was starting next, with the clue being that it is 60 hours long and a work of classic fiction. Several of you guessed correctly, Les Miserables. You also gave me some good ideas with your other guesses. My son Seth is a fan of Alexander Dumas, and several of you suggested The Count of Monte Cristo, so that is definitely on my list, though it will most likely take me a very long time to finish Les Mis!
My current bedtime read is The Remains of the Day. Have you read it? I’m halfway through, and I definitely look forward to reading it each night. I’ve been trying to squeeze in a bit of reading each morning as well and my morning read is The Return of the Prodigal Son. It’s a good one too!
