mid-june yarn along

I’ve been doing a lot of knitting and reading recently, so thought it was time for an update on both. I’m Yarning Along with Ginny.

It’s the final week of the Once Upon a Time Reading Challenge and I’m on my fifth and final (new) book for the challenge. Fablehaven is the first book in a middle-grade modern fantasy series about two young siblings who spend a few weeks with their somewhat estranged grandfather one summer. I expect to finish it up in the next couple days and then it’s on to Station Eleven (which I hear is dystopian for those who don’t normally care for dystopian) and Saint Maizie (a historical fiction about the Queen of the Bowery). And I started Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on audiobook last night, for listening while knitting.

Mid-June Yarn Along

My two-at-a-time socks are speeding along. I’ve picked up the stitches after the heel turn and am now decreasing toward the toe. My final class is next Wednesday, so they’ll be done in a week. So excited to add a new skill to my knitting toolkit.
