Knitting and Reading

I've decided to join a "Yarn Along" (see the new gadget on the side bar to the right) since I've been both reading and knitting a lot over the last couple of weeks. Both are tapering off some, as I get back into the ebb and flow of a busy life, but continuing at their more moderate paces.

I am reading "Organized Simplicity" on my Kindle. It was a freebie a few weeks ago, and though I am only a chapter or so into it, I am gleaning lots from it! I am also reading an older book called "Homestead on the Hillside" (also a freebie on my Kindle ) which is like Louisa May Alcott's darker books, but by a different author. I had a hard time getting into it at first, but then enjoyed it and looked forward to reading more if it when I could.

I finished up the first of Josiah's socks, and started the second yesterday. I haven't had time to knit yet today, but plan on working on that later this evening. Jerusha's sweater is coming along nicely, and I hope to finish that by this weekend.

I am interested in "homestead on the Hillside" as I love reading books from that era. Your socks are coming along nicely.

I too thought organized simplicity was a good read! Love your sock!!

We certainly have enough snow for us and you all too, lol! We are thoroughly in the midst of winter here with the snow festival being this week. Waffles sound yummy! Glad to see you all enjoying life. :-)
