I've enjoyed the Yarn Along posts at Small Things for a few weeks now, where bloggers post a picture of both what they're knitting/crocheting and what they're reading. I decided to add my own today:
The yarn is KnitPicks Palette in rainforest heather, the pattern is Kristen Omdahl's lovely lacy Birch Vest, and the book is Stephen King's On Writing.
I haven't read any of Stephen King's other books - being scared isn't usually my idea of entertainment (the Weeping Angels excepted) - but the man knows his stuff. This is a really good book. I'm especially digging his idea that novels ought to be written at a one-novel-per-three-months pace. That'd certainly cut down on the amount of time I have to impatiently wonder how is this all going to end again? In other words, the master of horror might have just taught me how to take some suspense out of my life. :)
And I'm enjoying the vest very much. I had to rip back two whole rows due to my own carelessness, but now that I've done one whole repeat of the lace I'm hoping that I can avoid doing any more of that. The yarn is beautiful - it doesn't come through properly in the photo, but it's the very best green ever, full of little specks of blue and red.
More of this sort of thing here!
Peace of Christ to you,
