Yarn Along

Well, there isn’t much to show for my knitting today.  Especially since it’s gift knitting.  But I love the color – it’s perfect for this first week of fall .  I’m slowly knitting away on it every chance I get.  Few and far between though those moments are.  Since I get so little actual knitting time I have lots of time to think about knitting and I figured out that if I knit one project a month I’ll have my gift knitting finished for Christmas.  It helps that I actually get a few extra days seeing as I’ll probably be sending them home with my mom when they visit for Christmas 😉  But I still fear that this goal might be over reaching.  Oh well, the good news is that gifts are always a good thing, even if they come after Christmas. 

Reading hasn’t had much more progress but I have started two of those books I brought back from vacation.  March by Geraldine Brooks is a novel based on Mr. March, off to war and therefore missing from Little Women.  I love historical fiction 🙂  Mother Teresa – Come Be My Light is the personal writings of Mother Teresa.  So far I’ve only read the introduction so I can’t really comment on it.  I am so interested in getting to know a little of the “real” Mother Teresa, beyond the sweet soundbites that get quoted all over. 

And now for linking up and enjoying all the eye candy 🙂

    Kate, what yarn are you using for your Christmas knit? I really love that color and would love to see if I can find it here.
    I may be over reaching with my Christmas knitting, but I going to give it my best, any excuse to knit more.
