Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along. Oh yes, the holiday pressure is on and there is so much I want to be be knitting! But, the stomach flu (yuck) and the end-of-term grading have sort of been putting a damper on my progress.... I did finish up a few projects last week though! And, right now I am finishing up a pair of mittens for my dad and looking forward to casting on some hats and mitten for my own kids in the days to come.
I just started reading In the Kingdom of Men, which I have been waiting on hold for at the library for quite some time. I am only about 30 pages in, but I am enjoying it and am eager to read more.
What are you reading and knitting this week?

I know that many of you out there are doing lots of knitting (and sewing and crafting) for the holidays. Would you care to join me in my Handmade Holidays 2012? I would love to have you!

Pin It Now!
