Ginny of Small Things says: ~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr.

The knitting is my Viajante shawl (Rav link). Yes, I'm still working on it. I'm hoping to be finished by Pentecost, because red is the traditional color of Pentecost, but I've got so far to go.
I've hit my stride recently though, and am really making time. The recycled silk is a little hard to work with, because it's really not plied, and so it constantly wants to be two threads, rather than one single yarn strand. That means I can knit and listen to something, but not knit and watch TV, because I have to watch where the needle goes, even though it's simple stockinette. Oh well! Encourages me to use up those podcasts, right?
The book is "Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting". It was a Christmas present and I'm enjoying it (a book about knitting and writing. Of course I like it!). There's a huge variety in the essays: different worldviews, different topics, different takes. But even when I don't agree with the authors, I appreciate the little glances into their worlds. There is a lot of good writing in here - my favorite so far is one by Kaylie Jones about her Portuguese nanny, Judite. It was really touching.
Peace of Christ to you,
