Yarn along 3
I am happy to be joining in with Ginny at small things this week.
Two books to share, I had ordered Joel Salatin's The Sheer Ecstasy of being a Lunatic Farmer, but as soon as it was unwrapped, John nabbed it, and I have to be content with listening to him reading out snippets. I am looking forward to reading it myself. In the meantime I am reading The Hive by Bee Wilson. This is a lovely book, not about beekeeping, but a more philosophical and literary look at the bee in culture. It is from our visiting Library Van.
Knitting wise - I have started the Pure and Simple baby Cardigan from Weekend Knitting. This is for our nephew and his wife's baby, due in August. (You can see their wedding photo's here). I am using more of the Artesano superwash merino, this time in a soft cream. I originally wanted to do this for Erin, but was put off because the pattern calls for two different needles to be used in each row, but in fact it is not as tricky as it first sounded.
Visit Yarn along to share what others are reading and knitting too. xx
