yarning along: early october
posted by soe 3:22 am

Sometimes (when I remember to take a photo), Wednesdays are for sharing books and knitting projects as I yarn along with Ginny.

This is a week for attempting to finish things previously begun. My reading is the verse memoir, Brown Girl Dreaming, by Jacqueline Woodson, who was one of the authors I listened to at the National Book Festival. I’m enjoying her poems about growing up African American in the late-1960s and 1970s. I’m hoping to finish by Friday, because the book has holds on it at the library and I need to return it before the weekend. On the audiobook front, I just tonight (since I wanted something for while I was dealing with peeling a pot of tomatoes) started listening to Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South, via the CraftLit podcast.

Yarning Along: Early October

My current knitting is the next in my stripey stockinette socks in progress. These, knit in Beyond Basic Knit’s Vintage Holiday, I started last fall in hopes of wearing them during the Christmas 2013 season, but that didn’t happen. Sock #1 is done and #2 is well started, so hopefully these will be completed well before this year’s holidays. I already have a skein of new stripey yarn waiting to be wound into a ball, ready to commence working on next week, although I probably ought to consider some baby knitting for the latest additions to the greater friend pool.

How about you? What are you reading and/or knitting this week?

Both the sock and the book cover are quite pretty. They look nice together.

@Karen: Thanks! As I was taking the shot, I was wishing I’d timed the book to be read during my previous sock, which matched the cover’s colors.
