Yarn Along

Hello! Happy Wednesday! Joining with Ginny at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along. It is a glum and rainy day out there. Makes me want to just sit home and read and knit! If only I didn't have work to do......

I am almost done with Phoebe's jumper, hoping to put in the last few hours this week or weekend. I keep putting it off because the end has a lot of detailed instructions, and my brain has not felt up to the task. So instead,  I started a very mindless yarn bombing project so I have something simple to knit while Phoebe is at swim lessons. Stay tuned to see the final "bombed" project in the weeks to come!

Well, I was still reading War and Peace.....  but I had to take it back to the library yesterday because other folks had holds on it. It's hard to read a 1200 page book that you can only check out for 3 weeks at a time! So now I am back on the hold list for it. In the meantime, I am reading The Double Comfort Safari Club, part of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. I love any books that are set in Africa, so when I need a quick, fun read, I often turn to my No. 1 Ladies!

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


  1. I have read some of the Ladies Detective Agency books - they are fun reads. Enjoy!

  2. pretty pretty yarn!!! I read Anna Karenina and that was a long long time ago.

  3. I laughed at war and peace on a 3 week loan - it would take me 3 years! The project looks lovely, nice colours.
