Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading (though not at the same time!), 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? 











My Hitofude is progressing.  I had some time over this past weekend to knit in the car.  We made a 3 day trip to New Orleans for a wedding, but the only knitting time I had was on the return trip. 

While there I visited a shop called The Quarter Stitch.  My oldest daughter had been there this past summer, so I knew I wanted to take a quick peak.  I found this organic cotton.  There were kits already packaged for a sweater or blanket.  Since both of those are almost always on my needles, I went ahead and purchased the blanket kit.  I love this cotton.  Different than what I normally use, but still very soft.

This Saturday Rachel turns 2!!!  Her Baby Tea Leaves is almost ready to wrap.  Every little girls should have some Cashmere!!!

I found a Scott Hahn book I haven't read and snatched it up. As a convert ( both he and I), I find his writing very authentic. 

This Saturday, Ginny will be doing a feature post on Drawstrings!  There will be a giveaway and an announcement!  Make sure you stop by  :)))

Linking up with Ginny today!!
