Yarn Along--hello old friend
I am back for Ginny's Wednesday Yarn Along for the first time in what seems eons!
I took a long break from knitting as I began to focus more on writing, and my knitting bag in the van was replaced by my notebook. I still keep the notebook with me, and I am still working on writing, but with Christmas approaching, a tight budget and lots of people on the gift list, I decided it was high time to pick up my needles.
Right now I'm knitting hats, specifically these wonderfully easy stash-busters, perfect for using up the odd ends of Noro I have. I am perfecting my jogless stripes, too.
As for reading, I've mainly been reading books on writing. I'm a little ways into this one, and about halfway through a paperback crime novel (Swag, by Elmore Leonard). Not my usual cup of tea, but he's a favorite author of a good friend, and I thought I'd give it a go. It's actually fairly entertaining.
Hope to see you back here next week!
