yarn along

This week, I am joining Yarn Along, hosted by Ginny of Small Things. An opportunity to share my love of knitting AND reading? Yes please!



knitting: I FINALLY made it to the DPN point on this Hermione Hat. I know I've been talking about this hat for almost a month...it's taken me awhile to finish but it's been a really fun project and I cannot WAIT to wear it! Hopefully it will be finished by the weekend.

reading: This week I've been reading Bel Canto by Ann Patchett. This is one of those books that's been on my list for ages so when I finally found it at the library last week I knew I had to pick it up. And it does not disappoint.

  6. I read Bel Canto years ago in my book club. It didn't seem that long ago, but then I remembered the last time I was there, and it was! Lovely knit. I've never done a cable and said this was the year I would try it. Better get a move on because the year is winding down!!!
