Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Joining in with Ginny

I've finished the back, the left side and started on a sleeve of the cardigan I'm making for my grandchild due next year.And the new stitch is an easy one- Knit into the stitch below. I quite like to be able to pick up a new stitch.

The book is a light read called The Simple Life about a family moving away from the stress of city life to the English countryside, and shares the happenings of the family as they try to adjust to many things such as a smaller house, less income, new schools etc. As I said a light read but enjoyable. I found it in the WWOOFer's  (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) accommodation when I went in to check that the last wwoofer had left it clean.


  1. I read a book, See you in a hundred years, that is based on the one you are reading. I have heard The Simple Life is very good and am glad you are enjoying it. xx

  2. What a lovely thing, to knit for new family members who will be joining you soon! I've been knitting for a nephew (who was born last month) and a niece (who will be born next month) all spring and summer and there's such joy to be found in making something useful and beautiful for someone you can't wait to meet! -- Kathy at

  3. What fun! Can't wait to see it finished!
