From small things:
~ 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 single photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
That’s the second of a pair of socks I’m working on in a festive (unnamed ) colorway. I bought the yarn 2 years ago on vacation in Alaska, so it was in relatively deep stash. When looking for something to knit during our Thanksgiving week travels and visits with family, it practically jumped into my arms, begging to be knit. This week I have also been knitting up more ornaments, both for a holiday traditions exchange and as gifts. And I am also working on a test knit, (my first ever!) for a friend back in my much-missed Stitch ‘n Bitch group in CT. That’s a lot of knitting!
During the day I have been reading these same few books to PB over and over. Babies love repetition, and she really likes to sink her teeth into the same 3 or 4 books for a while before moving onto new loves. She is excellent at turning pages and reacting to favorite parts and characters in these books, so it’s a rewarding (if repetitive) experience. Come evening, I tend to head to bed a bit on the early side to get some more adult reading time. I have been devouring Little Bee, a heartbreaking, truthful, beautiful novel by Chris Cleave. I’m down to the last 1/4 or so of the book, and while I have really enjoyed its language and characters, the tone is somewhat serious; not exactly a cheerful tale. I’m still hoping for a happy ending…aren’t we all?
I hope your week of knitting and reading is going as well as mine.
