Today I am joining Ginny for her weekly Yarn Along.
The rainy weather has strengthened my knitting resolve as of late. Last night while watching Prohibition, I started a cowl that will be a Christmas gift. I am so excited that I am starting my gift-making in October. Each year I try to get moving a little sooner so I can get all of my planned handmades actually made. The yarn is malabrigo and it was kettle dyed in some manly, fall colors. I haven't forgotten my legwarmers. I am still plugging away on the second leg. It should be completed very soon.
In the book department, we've been reading Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz. I really wonder where Baum got his imagination. He is really out there. We are all loving this series. I also started reading The Habit of Being. This book is a collection of letters written by Flannery O'Connor. Amanda over at the habit of being inspired this book choice. I read several of O'Connor's stories in high school and always found her to be quite witty. I was also fascinated that she lived in Milledgeville, Ga. which is not too far from my hometown.
We have a busy afternoon ahead. Time to get in some knitting before the day gets away. We are having some full, full days around here, so I'll be scarce around these parts on Thursday, but I'll be back for Photographic Friday. I hope to see you then. Happy Wednesday.
What are you making and reading this week?
