Howdy! It's Wednesday...time to share what I'm knitting and reading this week.
From Ginny Sheller's Blog...
~ 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. ~
I went to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival earlier this month and picked up these two fun colored skeins of yarn by MarigoldJen. Her booth is in her daughter's tent and I was attracted to the logo. It was at the end of the day that I found her and I was still looking for the perfect yarn that wanted to come home with me. These two skeins made me happy, reminded me of summer and after this long cold winter, it was just what I needed.
Without a plan in mind for a project, I scouted out Ravelry. I came across the Pendulum shawl by Amy Miller and knew I found a life for this yarn.
In colorways Wildflowers and Burning Embers, I'm calling this Strawberry Fields.

Thank you for the book suggestions last week. But as it usually happens, I had already read them all.
That's what happens. ALL THE TIME. I'm always looking for the next great read.
I had bought The Owl & Moon Cafe at our library sale a few months ago so I picked this up.
I love a good book. A real book. A great story line, well written and smart.
This book? Is none of that but I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! It's silly, predictable, quirky, romantic, sad, happy, cute and totally cheesy. I think it's just what I needed. It's one of those books that you could read in one sitting at the beach. So I'll keep my eyes and ears out for the next "good read" but for now, the ladies of The Owl & Moon Cafe have my attention.
As some of you may know by now, I teach knitting lessons at my parent's alpaca farm in Wall, NJ.
It's a joy to teach and it brings such happiness to me to see people learning and enjoying themselves.
"Purple Debbie" took my most recent class and blogged about it.
I thought I would share her experience from a different point of view. Hop on over there if you have a minute to read what she wrote. And she also takes a ton of gorgeous photographs of our area!
Have a great week! Happy Knitting All :)
