Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs.

It's been a while since I posted a project for the Yarn Along, but it isn't because I haven't been knitting. I've been knitting and un-knitting. Currently, I'm working on this shawl in Rozetti Polaris yarn. It's very nice with sparkly little sequins embedded in the yarn. I love the way the sequins catch the light.  I have a few more rows before I can bind off and block. I'm also knitting the Irish Hiking hat which I have knit many times before. It's difficult to see, but this had has a simple little cable pattern. I hope to finish these projects by the end of the week. I'm SO ready to move on from this shawl. It's seems like forever since I finished a knitting project!

As for reading, I'm reading French Kids Eat Everything by Karen Le Billon. I've got some seriously picky twins and my daughter refuses almost everything I put in front of her. Needless to say, I'm seriously frustrated. I'm hoping for some inspiration to turn things around here.

That's it for today! Stop by Ginny's  for more books and yarn!

I've never knit with sequins before, I bet it makes you happy every time you pick it up to knit!
