Yan Along: Junior Raveler

~ 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!

Progress on the baby blanket continues (aided greatly by a 90 minute wait at the doctor's office on Monday!).  Since it looks pretty much the same (except bigger), today I am sharing instead a photo of Moose making a "hat" for his "baby" (the Gloworm).  He snatched this fun rainbow yarn out of my squeaky yarn stash and set to work at unrolling it and wrapping it around her.  I have since secreted away the yarn to make a real hat for his baby. I'm hoping the preemie size of the Adventure Hat will work.

I am half-way through Death Comes to Pemberley and thoroughly enjoying it!  While not pure Austen or pure P.D. James, it has enough of both to make it satisfying to me as a fan, and is such a well-crafted mystery in itself that I learned the hard way I can't read it immediately before bed . . .

  1. I'm thinking that Death Comes to Pemberley needs to be added to my book queue!

  2. At least your kiddo is interested in yarn. :-) Sadly my girls are not interested at all..

  3. Bummer on the 90 minute doctor wait. I love it when the kiddos want to knit!

  4. Yay for kids and yarn...I love it when my little man starts "knitting".

  5. I love the attempt at the hat making! I'm sure gloworm appreciated the thought! Jacinta

  6. That's so sweet that he was making a hat!! I bet he will be so pleased when he sees a real hat ready!

  7. haha, I love it when babes play with wool like kitties. My girl is often tangled up in one of my projects as I knit.

    I think a preemie size hat would fit mr. glowworm just perfectly!
