Yarn Along

Happy Yarn Along! Joining with Ginny of Small Things today....

Finally got a good photo of Phoebe sportin' her new scrap yarn poncho. And with it, the new Raevyn slouchy hat I finsihed up last week. Phoebe picked out the yarn and buttons herself. Pink cats. Too cute!

I am currently working on finishing up Phoebe's costume, as well as a plain tunic that I started last week using yarn I got at Flock and Fiber.

I am still reading Sometimes A Great Notion by Ken Kesey. I have been reading it for ages- it is hard to get into as the narrator changes from paragraph to paragraph and you switch the point of view without any forewarning. Not to mention that past and present tenses are mixed in together. But, so is the writing of Kesey, I guess. I am almost halfway through and finally feel like I am in the groove and motivated to read... and I am REALLT enjoying the fact that it takes place in Oregon. Unfortunately, I have to bring it back to the library, with almost 400 pages left to read, as it is on hold. I vow to finish it someday!

What are you reading? What are you knitting?
