Yarn Along for February 20

~ 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 photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
So , my report this week is not so much progress!  It is tax season and I know that gets old, but that's life here.  Reading is more like Good Housekeeping on the fly.  I did load an ebook on my iphone and read it this week.  A freebie called Catch A Falling Star.  Pretty good, and I'm trying out the whole ebook experience.  I still like the book smell and watching the bookmark progress it's way toward the end.
  I did stop into the Library yesterday and return a few Mary Jane's Farm magazines that I had read through and a knitting book and picked up a few things to bring home with me.  I was reading someone's goal  of reading all the  Newbery award books and remembered starting something like that once before, so I found a list and don't remember reading Number The Stars, so I checked that out for this week and then I saw a Gail Levine book and thought I'd try one of those so I grabbed Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg.  I always liked reading that age of fiction and it should go quick, which is a huge bonus. Sorry Elaine, it should go quickly.   Also grabbed City Girl, Country Vet by Cathy Woodman.  I work part time in a vet office, so thought this might be entertaining.  I might even understand some of the vet lingo!
Knitting- that whole one skein, one night project??  I haven't had the night yet, so I just carry it around with me and pet it every once in a while and someday, I'll sit down with it for a night and make a difference and you will want to knit one then, too!
But until then, you might just want to hop over to Ginny's blog and check out today's Yarn know...people who are really getting their knitting projects moving along!!

The yarn looks very pretty! Sometimes life gets in the way of our knitting, doesn't it? ;-)

I agree that there's nothing like the smell of a good book! I have found that I really like e-books for vacations though--so much easier to pack than multiple books!

Can't wait to see more of your knitting soon :) Thanks for stopping by my blog, too :)

My family has always been affected by tax season, too. Hubby and one son are CPAs.
