Small Things for today's yarn along. It has been a few weeks since I have done a yarn along post. I think it is mostly because I have been a bit scatter-brained and have been starting lots of things, but not finishing many. Call it startitis if you will.... however, in this case, the startitis is not just referring to my knitting, but to my life in general.
Anyways, since my last yarn along post I finished a few baby hats as gifts for friends (no pictures before I sent them out..oops!) as well as a super cute hat for Phoebe (shown below), all of which were knit from scrap yarn. I am sure P will be getting tons of use out of that wool hat in August, eh? Actually, we are going to bring it camping with us this weekend... we'll see if it gets cold enough! Right now I am knitting a wee surprise for a dear friend, and have been thinking of all of the other knitting projects I want to start, but not letting myself start anything new in this realm of my life. At least my startitis has not yet spread to my knitting!!
What am I reading? Well, what aren't I reading would be a better way to put it. I am currently loving Running the Rift, a fiction book about the Rwandan genocide. I am also (still) working my way through The End of Nature, The Shock Doctrine, and The Hobbit. The End of Nature and The Shock Doctrine are both non-fiction, and although both are interesting, they just don't seem to be capturing my attention. I am plodding through them s-l-o-w-l-y. I have also been delving into some hiking books, parenting books, relationship books, and craft books... too many to mention. Like, I said, I am not focused, and I seem to be starting lots of new things but not finishing up the old.
This week's goal? To finish at least one of those books up! Wish me luck!
