I think that this particular yarn-along of Ginny's should be nicknamed, "The Big Unveiling: Secret Knits Revealed". What do you think? Although I haven't visited other yarn alongers yet, I'm guessing that this week and next will probably be filled with all those Christmas knitting projects that none of us could share before the holidays. Please forgive the long heavy photo post...
My mom's Malabrigo Neck Thingie and a pair of Malabrigo Hand Thingies.
My dad's Meandering Rib Scarf.
Two pairs of duffers for my two younger boys.
Still working on: (yes, not all was done on time unfortunately...)
My husband's Circle and Stripe Scarf
Two more pairs of duffers in varying stages.
For reading...I finished Sarah's Key in two days (sped read through parts of it). I thought the first half of the book was well-written and intriguing, and I loved how the author intertwined two families and two time periods. And of course, learning about the very sad events in France's history was very moving. I think the second half of the book was more contrived and a bit of a let-down. I kept reading just to find out what happened. It was actually depressing on several levels. My new 'read' is A Field Guide to Fabric Design (thanks, Mom!). I hope to renew my interest in textile design little by little.
What are you knitting and reading?
