Yarn Along

 Joining in with Ginny of Small Things for this week's yarn along.

Still working on this poncho for Phoebe using leftover yarn from my stash. I haven't made much progress since last week, but such is summer and all the fun and adventure that comes along with it. My cat, Flash, apparently really likes it though...

Still reading Everything I Want to Do Is Illegal, which talks about how regulations make life awful hard for small, non-corporate farmers. The author is pretty intense, but I am really enjoying the read so far.  I am also reading The Condition by Jennifer Haigh, which is a fictional story about a girl with Turner' Syndrome. I am still only a few chapters in, but it is interesting so far.

What are you reading? What are you knitting? Pin It Now!


  1. Your cat is deep in thought/sleep. I bet you've been very busy with duck mothering this week, hopefully you will have time to do some work on your project this upcoming week!

  2. can't wait to see the poncho all finished.

  3. I love the pic of your cat! (I found your blog thru Ginny's YAL)
