Yarn Along: Gestating Baby Blanket

Yarning Along with Ginny again today!

~ 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! ~

The baby blanket is coming along, albeit somewhat slowly.  Because this blanket is knit from the corner, each row gets longer (and takes longer).  I suppose its a poetic comparison that the blanket seems to be growing by barely-perceptible increments, as is the intended recipient.  As ever, I could benefit from patience all around and enjoy the process more and focus on the finished product less. The blanket is starting to get heavy on my needles, though, which I always feel is a good sign of a substantial project. 

This week I am reading The Mystery of Love by Cardinal Basil Hume, the late Archbishop of Westminster Cathedral in London.  Sadly, he passed away three months before I arrived in England and I never had the chance to hear him give a homily.  A friend of mine who did, however, has been raving about him to me for years, so I picked up this book, which is a collection by theme of homilies.  I am finding him to be modern and accessible, and, best of all, very thought-provoking.

Please come join us at Ginny's and share what is on your needles and off your bookshelf at the moment!
