It's Wednesday, time for Yarn Along with Small Things when knitbloggers share what they're reading and knitting.
It's vacation knitting time and I'm still doing Project Stash's Amari Shawl KAL. The progress is going well even with my tight gauge. It might just get finished before the end of summer. I'm reading a Harper's Bazaar magazine on loan to me from my MIL. Fashion magazines allow me to pretend like I'm stylish even if just for a few moments. Funny how young children and too many interests can lead to poor personal style. With all the breastfeeding I'm doing my favorite outfits are the ones where people won't notice too much that I'm not wearing a bra.
I also brought Girlosophy, which is one of my all time favorite books of inspiration. It's a good book to have on hand when you need a good swift kick in the ass and to get refocused. Then I also wanted a little bit of Yarn Harlot goodness and brought The Secret Life of a Knitter. I have aspirations to be a better writer. Maybe Stephanie Pearl-McPhee can show me the way?
How's your week going? What are you knitting and reading? Let me know in the comments.
