Yarn Along: Knitting and Reading in Tandem

Joining Ginny for her wonderful Wednesday Yarn Along:

~ 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 photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

Thank you for all your kind comments last week on my Mystery Birthday Project.  I am alternating between that project and my Consolation Cowl, which is coming along very nicely! I just love it when you can finally start to see the pattern of an openwork/lacy project taking shape!

I am also alternating between this month's Kitchen Reader selection, A Homemade Life (utterly delightful), and The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse (utterly insightful).

The latter I happened upon at a new-to-me Catholic Bookstore last week.  I'm a bit of a personality junkie to begin with (I've read several books on the MBTI - I am an ENFJ, if anyone is curious), so even though it uses the classical personality types (sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic, and melancholic), it is interesting both intellectually and spiritually.

If you're feeling inspired to share what's on your needles and off your bookshelf, pop on over to Ginny's to join in!

  1. I love reading about personality types! My husband and are are actually exact opposites on the Meyers-Briggs, so it's always fun to learn a bit more about what makes us tick!

  2. I love that moment when you can actually start to see the shape the lace will be. Lacey things are the one type of project I cannot wait to block.

    We work with MBTI personality types at my church's leadership school (I'm volunteer staff); I'm an INTJ, heavy on the J, heavy on the I. Such helpful insights.

  3. I've loved taking personality tests since I was in grade school--so fascinating! I will have to look for the temperament book you're reading; sounds like it would be very interesting!

  4. looks like a good book recommendation! Thanks! And your knitting is looking good too!!

  5. Looks like your knitting is coming along well!
