Yarn Along

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

I finished my vest just in the nick of time.. I stayed up past midnight on Sunday night finishing it (after seeming the pieces together backwards at around 11:30..... late night knitting is prone to mistakes, I guess!). But it is finished, and I love it. I don't have any pictures of me wearing it, not yet.. but I will soon!

I just starting reading Trigger Warning, a book of short stories by Neial Gaimen. It caught my eye at the library as I have read several of his books for children. I have only read the first of the stories, but it was intriguing. However, I am about to leave for a bit of an adventure, and the short stories will stay behind. I am bringing A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, by Dave Eggers, along for the ride. I haven't started to read it yet, but it has been on my to-read list for years. 

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