Yarn Along

 Joining with Ginny at Small Thing's for this week's Yarn Along.

It's only Wednesday morning and so far this week has been a bit strange... Monday morning Phoebe fell while running and broke her pinkie finger. (She was so brave.) Tuesday was extremely windy and we even lost our power for a few hours because of it. And it is still super windy as I type this. Now the weather is calling for possible snow here tomorrow, and I am taking my students on a field trip to a farm tomorrow morning. Well, maybe I am. For those of you who don't know, snow here is rare, which means when it happens, everyone sort of freaks out and people seem to lose all sensibility when driving vehicles. I love the snow, so I have my fingers crossed that we get some!

I have been more in a knitting mood lately, and although I haven't been too productive, I have been knitting a little bit each night. I have started a new plain tunic for Phoebe, in a lovely blue silk-wool blend that I got at Flock and Fiber this year. It feels lovely to knit with-- so cozy! However, I think it may get set aside soon so that I can start some Christmas gifts. I need to make a run to the yarn store this week-- I am very behind this year!

I just started reading The Uglies, another tween sci-fi read. I haven't read enough to give an opinion yet, although the first few chapters seem pretty strange.

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


  1. fingers are crossed you get the snow AND you are not on a field trip in it.....snow day!!! Love the yarn and hope you keep your power from now on. My world crumbles when the electricity goes out.

  2. The yarn your using is so pretty! I hope Phoebe feels better soon! :)

  3. Here's hoping that snow comes :) That yarn looks lovely. Hope Phoebe is better soon.

  4. All the best to poor Phoebe. And that yarn does looks delicious - she will love it.
