Yarn Along: Already August!

~ 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!

Work continues on the baby blanket for our hopeful addition.  Yesterday evening I changed over to the fourth ball of yarn (of eleven total).  Having smaller-yardage balls certainly gives the impression of quick progress!

I had some time to kill (!) after an out-of-office meeting last week and made a stop at the library.  I am usually a major proponent of libraries, but our local branch has always had a dismal selection so I'll admit I haven't even bothered looking there in ages.  Imagine my surprise that they had Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James! I realize it has gotten poor reviews, but so far I am enjoying it immensely!  (And for the record, of the dozen or so books I looked up in my browsing, this was the only one they had - so I'm afraid that it was just a lucky break and not a tide change at the library).

  1. Your baby blanket looks beautiful, I think I should add this book to my reading list, it sounds like something I would enjoy.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and writing about my dad.


  2. I love Jane Austen sequels. I have not read that one yet. I will have to check it out. The blanket looks great!

    1. Hi Erica!

      I'm really particular about my JA sequels. This one is good so far. My all-time favorite is probably Mr. Darcy's Daughters by Elizabeth Aston - highly recommended if you haven't read it already!

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. I'm liking the gray with the white just like I thought I would. Bummer about your library; ours is always way behind the times too. They've shocked me with their trendiness lately, though, so maybe someone new is ordering the books. One can always hope.
