Yarn Along - Nov 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"

Hey!  It's been a few since I posted a Yarn Along and now I go over this morning to Ginny's and her creation beats all of ours!  She knit up a baby and he's so cute!!  So I guess I need to do a little investigating to see if this is on hold or if someone else is posting..

I'll just post my own and see if anyone else shows up!

I just finished reading this book.  It was the book that came before my last newbury, which was Dicey's Song.  It didn't ruin it that I read book #2 before book #1, but I did sort of wonder how they got there, so found this one and read it through.  I enjoyed both of the books and am lining up the next in the series at a local library.
  This is the stack that I have hanging around right now.  The Ginger Pye book, I think I read with one of my kids years ago, but it is my current Newbury pick.  The Kingsbury is The Bridge and I just like pretty much anything by Karen Kingsbury.  The Story is what we are doing in our Sunday School class, a chapter a week and really enjoying it.  Sticky Faith I just finished and if you are looking for a bit of help figuring out which direction to go with the youth of your church, this is a good resource.  The bottom one is our girls Bible Study book and that's what I'm needing for tonight.  How about you??  What is on your nightstand/end table just waiting for you??

 This is my knitting pile.  The red project is perhaps completed, but I had wanted to attempt to add thumbs to them, so they are still in limbo.  The coffee colored yarn on the right was a shawl that I started at least a year ago, but I put it down for a long time and the sheet of instructions in the bag with the knitting didn't match up what was happening on the needle, so my friend very lovingly wound it back to a ball to be re-created to something else.  Sometimes that ripping is just too painful to do on your own.   That very colorful ball is some great stuff I got last fall at Hemlock Lake, and was saving it and then I thought I might make the cowl in the picture, but found this ball of blue baby alpaca and that's what I'm starting with.  I have two balls of this great stuff and I'm just having a bit of a problem making up my mind!  This is the Bandana Cowl and I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Have you got any yarn at your house that is wrapping itself around your heart and your hook or needles??  do tell!!

I haven't been reading for awhile but need to begin again.

As for the knitting, I am sad to say that I can't do much of it anymore because it gives me carpel tunnel.

Have fun with yours!
