“Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here.”
These are the words the lovely Ginny at Small Things used to open her blog post each Wednesday for over 6 years before inviting people to also share their current makes and reads, an invitation I readily accepted when I first started blogging and was keen to find other people with similar interests to me. I have loved joining in with the Yarn Along and was sad to hear that Ginny had decided to stop hosting.
So what now? I’m not sure! Where Ginny is hoping to find more spontaneity in her blogging I love having the structure of knowing that certain days are for certain subjects and worry that without them the frequency of posts may dwindle and content be limited only to finished objects. So maybe I’ll move to Work in Progress Wednesdays, or perhaps a weekly roundup on a Friday? I will be continuing with the Weekly Photo Challenge on a Tuesday so am drawn to something later in the week. Or I might just continue Yarning Along but without the link up. I definitely intend to continue Yarn Along on my Instagram so it perhaps doesn’t warrant duplication. Decisions decisions!
But for now, while I consider next steps, here is this week’s Yarn Along.
On my kindle The Power by Naomi Alderman. On my needles almost a full pair of Rhian socks.
I am absolutely gripped by this book. I only started it yesterday bedtime but am struggling to put it down, only stopping last night when the kindle hit my nose when I just couldn’t hold it up any longer and sneaking every minute I can squeeze out of today.
The sock pattern is Rhian from The Sock Drawer book by Verity Castledine (available to buy here) made with West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4ply yarn in butterscotch and I love them so much. Not much more work to do here until I have the pair finished and ready to gift. Before I started this book I thought I may get them finished today but that is now looking unlikely! I am hopeful they’ll be done by the end of the week though.
