Yarn Along: Pumpkin Interlude

~ 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 sweater for our hopeful new addition is coming along nicely!  As I began the ribbing to finish the body over the weekend, I started reading ahead in the pattern to the sleeves and it dawned on me that my #8 DPNs were occupied with a hopelessly snoozing pumpkin hat (begun when Moose was about 9 mo. old and shelved when we had a hot autumn and Moose tore off any hat that came within five feet of his head).  Instead of frogging the hat or moving it to some stitch holders, I made myself take a mini-break from the sweater to finish the hat.

I'm sad (and not a little embarrassed) to say that I haven't picked up any reading this week because I had a late-to-the-party TV show discovery: glee.  I was in show choir in high school but, for some reason, have intentionally ignored the show until now.  I can't even tell you what made me watch the first episode on my Kindle.  But I have, and now I'm a bit hooked.  Where's that blushing emoticon from my email and online forums when I need it?

Come share in the fibrous fun with Ginny and friends!


  1. OH to have a young one to knit for. I must admit I have never seen Glee. I am not a big TV person, I will sit in the room but I will have a book or knitting going on. I listen to books on CD most of the time.
    I am working on a Christmas Fairy so I can share the pattern on Friday...If I can finish it.
