Yarn Along

It's Wednesday and therefore YarnAlong at Ginny's blog. Visit there to see what everyone else is knitting and reading.


I finished a wool scarf made from Cascade 220 Superwash Aran yarn. Then I added mittens from Cascade's Baby Alpaca yarn. I finished them just in time for freezing weather.

Check out the right sidebar to see the books I'm reading.

My personal rating system for books is as follows: Awful, OK, Good and Amazing. In the Beauty of the Lilies by John Updike is in the Amazing category.

Mindfulness in the Natural World by Claire Thompson is pretty Good; not quite Amazing, but close.

Tinkers by Paul Harding is Amazing.

I am a big fan of Libri Vox (see the right sidebar). I'm listening, bit by bit, to Walden by Henry David Thoreau (yes, Walden certainly gets an Amazing rating).

I listen to Walden on my i-phone while I'm driving in the afternoon to each of the three schools my three daughters attend...it's a lot of time, and I've managed to get through hundreds of hours of driving by listening to audio books.

What are you knitting and reading? Comment here or look over at Small Things to see what the rest of us are knitting and reading!
