Yarn Along

I am working on a hat for Brian's Valentine's Day present and hopefully a scarf to go with it. This is the first time I've done cables and I am so excited that they are working! Its like turning the heel on a sock...I get excited every time.

Maddie and I are reading Cabinet of Curiosities which is a lot of fun. Plans are being made for organizing the nature shelf which would be great. The introduction is all about the history of cabinets and there are a lot that were created long ago that became the basis of museums still around today. On my own I am reading The Endless Steppe. This is a kids book and I think I will read it to Maddie when I am done. I am at the point in the book where the little girl is helping to provide for her family by knitting for other people! She is being paid with milk and eggs and bread. Its amazing and based on the author's own childhood.

What are you knitting and reading today? Linking with Ginny at Small Things.


  1. I enjoy cables too. I just love that little twist! That looks like a great book for kids. Good luck with your cabinet. That will be a fun project.

  2. Both of those books sound really interesting!

  3. Oh I read the endless steppe at school! The image of her washing her hair with clay has stayed with me forever. I hope your daughter loves it.
