Yarn Along.......

From 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? Much of this week's reading revolves around schoolwork, specifically WWII. I have found many great picture books to supplement our history studies. One of my all time favorite read alouds for this awful time in history is Number The Stars.
Set in Nazi-occupied Denmark in 1943, this 1990 Newbery winner tells of a 10-year-old girl who undertakes a dangerous mission to save her best friend.
On my Ipad I am still listening to One Thousand Gifts... and savoring every minute of it.....

On my knitting needles is a soft little baby blanket.....I am so blessed to always have a new baby to be knitting for.....I am making it in a simple basketweave pattern, and because we don't know if this newest little blessing is a great-niece or great-nephew, I am making it in white, mint and yellow.
Now head over to small things and check out all the Yarn along.... posts.
