~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.)
Just a couple of days after posting last month’s Yarn Along, I broke a double point and had to set that pair of stripey socks aside. I haven’t gotten around to buying more needles, so I’ve moved on to other projects. I finished a hat for Job’s birthday over the weekend and I’ll post photos of it soon. Now I am focused on finishing Mabel’s little Puddle Duck. It’s going to be the perfect little sweater for her to wear over dresses this winter.
I’m still reading books for Keats’ and Gabe’s modern literature class. I finished Things Fall Apart and was sorry I couldn’t attend their class discussion on it. I tend to miss the layers and themes in stories and always appreciate listening to other people discuss them. I also read A Farewell to Arms which was horribly sad. I’m not sure whether or not I like Hemingway. I read The Old Man and the Sea in high school but don’t remember it. I read The Sun Also Rises about ten years ago, and don’t remember it either! Recurring theme here. Do you have a favorite Hemingway? Now I’m reading The Maltese Falcon, which I like! It’s a detective story and unlike my typical choices.
