~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.)
Yesterday, after shortly after taking this photo, I finished Silas’ blue sweater. It’s soaking now and will be ready for him when the weather turns cold. I think that’s the longest I’ve ever spent on a knitting project; this one sat in a project bag untouched for years! I’m so glad to have it finished.
My main books right now are Light from Heaven (more Mitford), and a Herman Melville Short story called Benito Cereno. The first is a sweet, easy, bedtime read that helps take my mind off stressful things. The other is a hard read that is making me feel like I’m in high school again, though we didn’t read anything this challenging in my high school literature classes. I have a list of study questions and I am doing lots of underlining in my book. Keats and Gabe are taking modern literature this year, and I have resigned myself to reading everything that they read. We should all be finished by this weekend and then the three of us can have a little book club and discuss the story before they have class on Monday. Somehow I doubt they will look forward to our book club the way I look forward to mine with my friends.
