I love the idea for this Yarn Along from Ginny at Small Things. I am trying to get back into knitting and maybe this will help motivate me to knit a little more and maybe finish something.
What I am knitting? I am currently working on the second of a pair of thick socks. Although I didn't originally intend for this it turns out that they will be for me. I guess I didn't quite get the size right and they don't fit their intended owner so they will be for me instead. I hope to finish these soon because I already have plans for a little girls sweater.
What I am reading? Every Man in this Village is a Liar, by Megan Stack. A great book. Megan Stack is an American journalist who reported in the Middle East for the past 13 years. She tells a story about her experiences and what she saw. It is making me a lot more aware of the issues in the Middle East and giving me a different perspective then what I would hear in the news or read in the paper. It is definitely worth reading.
