Yarn Along for May 29th...

" ~ 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 "  
This is where I'm at:
 I finished Dear Mr. Henshaw.  Now I'm onto Miracles on Maple Hill.  I really think that I read this Newbery book before, but can't remember, so I'm redoing the read.  Some are more recent reads and I'm counting those in my reading tally.  The other book here is Split Second by David Sears.  It is our book for Table of 8 this month.  We've had a LOT of trouble finding a time to get together.  We are making it happen this Saturday night.  But we just got the books on Sunday and didn't know that we were going to get it together on Saturday, so I guess this might have to move to the top of the pile!  It's a short book and it looks good.  4 people get the chance to think through their actions quick before they act.  It's a God book, so it's got that going for it!!
 And this is where my knitting is this week.  Found one hand warmer that needs a mate.  The yarn is Red Heart and its not soft, so I'm not really loving working it with it, but it's camo and it's what one kid will love, so pulling it out of the pile and working on it. Making it up as I go.  And then I saw a dishcloth pattern someone was working with and it looked pretty cool, so I printed off the pattern for Alaina's Simple Seed Stitch Dishcloth and started one with some of the big pile of cotton yarn I have all over the place. This is some sunny Lily Sugar & Cream.  I like is a happy color. 

 And when I went quilt fabric shopping, I happened upon this happy sheep fabric and I had to have a bit of it, so I picked up a quarter yard and something to go with and made a couple of cuts and found some zippers and whipped up some little zipper pouches for a knitting project.  I made 2 of these one scrap & sew weekend and its a great way to keep your smaller knitting projects from getting tangled up in your bag with your other stuff....and I always have other stuff.  I'm the queen on stuff.  Remember, I have the spiritual gift of clutter.  It's OK.  I'm good at it. :o)
So what are you reading and knitting this week?? stop and check with some other Yarn Along friends...

I actually haven't read anything recently. I'm trying to take a break because I was spending too much time with my nose in a book!

looks like fun, crafting + reading! We've read Dr. Mr. Crenshaw, but not the other two, let us know how they are.

I just read the Little House books again. I came across a really nice set at a sale. I had forgotten just how wonderful they are.
