An Autumn Yarn Along

 Hello! Joining with Ginny at Small Thing's ( a wee bit late) for this week's Yarn Along .

Still slowly chugging away at  my sweater.... yup, the one that I was trying to finish before I went to a festival in July. Oh well. It will get done. Eventually.  I did finish my Katniss vest before I went to Burning Man (see below!). And good thing, because the nights were chilly and I wore it lots!

I am starting to think and plan Christmas knits, which is always exciting! I found a few things I am hoping to knit up for Phoebe, before she gets to an age where she may no longer be so willing to wear what I choose to make for her. I am not letting myself start Christmas knits until I finish my sweater though....

I am reading In The Unlikely Event by Judy Blume. Remember her? One of my favorite authors as a child! I had no clue that she was writing for adults now. Her writing style is still very simplistic, almost as if I am reading a children's novel (but with adult content). It took me about 100 pages to get into this one, but now I am eager to see where the story goes.

What are you reading? What are you knitting?

Pin It Now!
