Yarn Along

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

This week I could probably just re-post what I shared last week. I am still in the thick of some secret holiday knitting-- hoping to finish up 2 more projects before the weekend is up... the clock is ticking! Once again, I will tell myself now that I need to start my holiday knitting earlier next year. Much earlier. Like July earlier. It is doubtful that I will heed my own advice, as I never have yet, but I will tell myself nonetheless.

I am still reading This Changes Everything by Naomi Klein. It is a non-fiction book about climate change-- it is long and intense (to say the least), but I am loving it. There is so much mind-blowing information in there and once I got into the rhythm of her dense writing, I have been soaking it up. It is still gut wrenching information, and so far mostly pessimistic, but I wouldn't expect a book about climate change to be full of rainbows and unicorns. I will have to read something very lighthearted after finishing this though....

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


  1. Good luck with you secret Christmas projects. I will have to look for that book. It sounds interesting, but depressing. The whole climate change scenario is not light hearted at all - serious and scary stuff.

  2. The knitted present is looking good! Happy knitting!!! Dark evenings are perfect for that!!

  3. ah super secret strikes again! I hope the secret is revealed after the holidays :)
