Yarn Along...

From Ginny, the founder of "Yarn Along"~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a single photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

I was gifted with this beautiful brown alpaca yarn last year from this very special lady, and have finally gotten around to turning it into a super soft scarf for my teenage daughter, Laura. The brown is so pretty mixed with flecks of tan and a hint of pink here and there. I have a few more inches and then I will block it. Next week I will post a photo of my beautiful Laura modeling it.

I have begun the book, Stay a Little Longer by Dorothy Garlock. I believe I saw this title on someones previous "Yarn Along" post. I am only a couple chapters into it and so far so good. I am trying to spend a half hour or so a day reading for myself---this, of course is after spending hours reading school books, picture books and living history books out loud to my little learners.

One of my favorite parts of knitting is the giving away of my work....and this past week I was blessed to see on facebook my new grand-nephew, Jacob, wrapped in the love I knit for him. You can check out this completely gorgeous baby on his momma's blog.

The alpaca scarf is now finished.....you can check it out here.

If you run out of reading material, try "Rainwater." It is a short poignant novel by Sandra Brown. I think you would like it.
