Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny at Small Things today for yarn along (a bit late, yes..... last night was a rough one around here).
This week I am reading The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Barbara Kingsolver, but I have been forewarned that this book is unlike her other works and is a bit harder to get through. I am only 15 pages in, but so far, I have to concur. I am normally sucked into her novels right away, and this one hasn't grabbed me yet. But I am going to give it some more time.... On the needles I am finishing up a birthday crown for my niece that I will hopefully felt today. Knitting and reading have been going slow lately. Very slow. The reason for this can be seen in the background!
Now I need to get out and enjoy this beautiful sunny morning we are having here today! Hooray! Pin It Now!

  1. Good to know about this book, I have held off reading it. Maybe it will pick up and become unforgettable? Love the purple yarn!
