Yarn Along: Moving Slowly

~ 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!

It seems like everything I do these days takes me about five times longer than it did just a few weeks ago.  Mostly, I don't mind the time alone with Mouse, or together with Moose and Mouse, with limited interruptions from the outside world (if only it could last!).  But I do feel slow.  I continue to plug along at the baby blanket for Mouse while she snuggles and snoozes in her sling.  It is still 80 degrees here, so I tell myself it's okay that I haven't finished yet . . .

Reading this great post on adult friendship put me in the mood to pull The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis off our library shelf.  I haven't read it since my early college days and, if I'm honest, it feels like picking it up for the first time. I can't get over Lewis's delightfully unpretentious and accessible tone!  Thanksfully, his writing is just as enjoyable in little nibbles, which is the best I can hope for at the moment.

  1. Your book sounds lovely, adding it to my list. Can't wait to see you little one snuggled up in that blanket.

  2. not to sound corny but "slow and steady wins the race". You will get stuff done eventually! The book sounds great !
