Yarn Along: September Edition

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

I am reading Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. How is it that I have never read this book before? This is  my September book club selection.

I have been away from the Yarn Alongs most of the Summer. Not because I haven't been knitting, but I haven't really finished much this Summer. Also, due to a certain twin, my laptop broke. So, I ended up neglecting my blog this summer and the weekly Yarn Along.

 I got this crazy idea to knit stocking caps for everyone in my family for our Christmas card photo. I'm on hat #2. I only have 5 more hats to knit. This seems like a goal I can manage. It's really a simple hat with endless stockinette. I do, however, need to learn how to make a pom-pom. The above hat is for Tess. Simple wide red and pink stripes make for a striking holiday hat. I'm thinking about Gryffindor colors for Luke, but I haven't decided on colors for the rest of the boys in my family. I still have time. I think.

Head on over to Ginny's for more reading and knitting.

So happy for your reading selection. This was a recent re read in our house with our two oldest. Fine, fine writing and great discussions. Enjoy!

I love to Kill a Mockingbird. Have you seen the movie with Gregory Peck? Oh, do watch it once you finish the book, it's worth it.

To Kill A Mockingbird is one of my all time favorite books that i re-read EVERY year. I hope you enjoy it. If you haven't seen it already, you should watch the move version done in 1963. It's very well done.
