Yarn Along:: Tardy to the Party

From Small Things:

Yarn Along~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs.    

I took this photo on Tuesday. Couldn’t find the USB Cable on Wednesday. Uploaded photo on Thursday & forgot to finish blog post. Friday: success!

This is the Cowgirl Butterfly Astronaut Vest, designed for the feminine yet wylie little lady in one’s life. I have one of those, and I have been daydreaming of layering her up in all sorts of wooly vests since the first hint of fall wafted through the air. It’s knitting up quickly (already up to the armholes), and I am really enjoying knitting with the Pico Accuardi Marco.

I started reading The Condition this week, and have been enjoying it so far. It’s another family drama full of charged relationships and flawed characters, one of my favorite types of books! There have been a lot of extremely early wake ups in our house since Daylight savings time fell forward (4 am early. For almost 2 weeks. Yawn…), which means I’m only reading a few pages each night before falling asleep with a paperback on my face. So I’m happily yet slowly plodding away at both my knitting and reading this week. Again, yawn…

What’s on your needles and nightstand?
