Yarn Along Feb 6 2013

~ 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! ~ Ginny at small things


sorry - pretty blurry photo with the phone...working lunch today- I'll try again...
leftover over homemade rolls and chicken wing soup...

Started a new cowl...I think cowls are my new go-to portable project.  Lots of patterns to be had on Ravelry.  This is one skein, one night...just my kind of project.  I might be more of a one skein>one month knitter right now!! I inter-loaned 3 knit fiction books
- I finished  How to Knit a Heart Back Home by Rachael Herron, and I'm slowly going through Knit in Comfort by Mary Krugger.  I've already renewed them, so I'm thinking I'm due again this Friday and one of my Rachael Herrons  will go back unread and maybe KinC will be left hanging for now.  Some seasons of the year and of life just don't work well with getting books read.  I've found that sometimes magazines bridge that reading gap.  Still working on the happiness project, but February is a tricky month.  At least the sun is shining.  Hop on over to Ginny's Yarn Along and see what everyone else is doing.

That yarn looks like fun! I am in a serious reading period. I am flying through contemporary fiction fluff, but I love it! I try to balance it out with non-fiction too :-)

Mmmm, I love cowls, too. Yours looks like it's going to be super snuggly. I read back into your blog a bit and wanted to offer my sympathies on your friend's passing. Breast cancer can be a tough journey; your friend looks like she was a wonderful lady who weathered the storm with grace. Many blessings.

I never thought I'd like cowls----until I made one!! (For some reason I thought they reminded me too much of those old 'dickey's' from the 60s!!!) I made 6 (yes, six!) random stripes cowls at the holidays for gifts. Your yarn looks like lots of fun.

I just finished reading a biography of Whitney Houston by her mom. It was interesting...and sad.

Can't knit anymore because of my carpel tunnel.

I go through those periods too - magazines are definitely good for those times - and I also love re-reading childhood favorites to help get me through those slumps! Can't wait to see your finished cowl!

Yes!!! It sounds like you are competent in so many crafts that you don't need to worry about crochet!! The important thing is to do what you enjoy!
