Yarn Along

Happily joining in with Ginny at Small Things for an October Yarn Along. I am almost finished with my surprise gift for a special little lady in my life (no spoilers here!) and I hope I can finish before next week. I need to, since I really need to get started on Halloween costumes!! I still haven't been finding much time to knit these days.. it seems like by the time everything is finished each night, I am too tired to contemplate anything but laying down.
In the reading world, I am still chugging along on The Shock Doctrine, which I have been reading for months. It is fascinating, but intense, so I never manage to read too much in one sitting. I am also reading The Red Tent, which is captivating and has been great to pull me into another world for the short moments that I can get away. I am also reading Not Just Spirited, which is a book about a mother trying to figure out what is wrong with her child and her journey along that path. Since I feel like I am currently on a similar journey, it has been a comforting read.
The cooler weather is making my fingers itch to knit, to hopefully I will have some new, exciting projects to share with you next week!
What are you reading? What are you knitting? Pin It Now!
