~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a single photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~ from Ginny's blog, small things
This is only my second time posting for Ginny's yarn-along ... shame on me! It's not that I haven't been knitting ... it's not that I haven't been reading ... it's just that I've been so busy knitting and reading, I haven't had time to post.
So, I apologize.
on my needles: finishing another cashmere design for Spring Gate Farm ... a cap (which is done) and a coordinating scarf which only has about seven more inches (than I must start the tam for Cast On!). I'll have this design posted on my site by the end of the week. If you'd like to see my other original hand-knit designs, check out my knitting blog, By Hand, With Heart!
on my reading table: re-reading Sweater Design in Plain English ... love, love, love this book! A "second edition" is coming out in April that of which I'm hoping to get a review copy so I can see if it's worth it to buy ... I'll keep you posted! I'm also reading Defiant Joy: The Remarkable Life and Impact of GK Chesterton that I'll be reviewing later this month. Our read-aloud, which we started on Friday, is Lost in Peter's Tomb ... a book we've had knocking around for a while so decided to read-aloud. It's really an interesting read that fits in with our "explorer" unit we'd put on hold during Advent/Christmas. The story is a mystery set in Rome with siblings and their aunt helping the Pope discover who is getting into the Vatican and why!
Thanks, Ginny, for starting this yarn-along ... it's always fun to see what others are doing!
