Yarnalong: "The Ministry of Motherhood" and "Favorite Scarf Ever"

Ginny over at 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. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

So here is what I'm knitting and reading right now:

The book: The book is "The Ministry of Motherhood", by Sally Clarkson. This is the first time I've read a book by Sally Clarkson, and I'm really glad I picked it up!

The knitting: The knitting is a free pattern, called "Favorite Scarf Ever", and I'm knitting it in the Candombe colorway of Malabrigo's sock yarn. My husband bought me this particular yarn on an anniversary trip a few years ago, and it took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to make from it. But this pattern is simple, and shows the variegated colors nicely. I'm looking forward to wearing it this fall!

Peace of Christ to you,

The pattern for the scarf and the yarn are a good combination, to my opinion a good choice. Your scarf will be beautful!

Both the pattern and the yarn are beautiful! (The picture made the pattern look like it was pivoting 90 degrees every row, but I saw differently on the pattern. I may have to work up the courage to knit something with a chevron pattern now!)
