I’m “hooking up” (haw haw, I’m hilarious) to “Yarn Along” (thanks to Ginny from Small Things!)
The idea is to take a single photo of what you are reading and knitting or crocheting, and link to the Yarn Along post or on Flickr.
So this is what I am crocheting at the moment- I’ve great plans for this Granny Square (gosh, do I love crocheting Granny Squares)
The book is called The Elegance of The Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. I read The Red Tent on Monday and thought it was simply fantastic, it grabbed me immediately, whereas with this one I’m finding it considerably slower, and I think as a result, I’m finding it quite difficult to get into it… but I’m ploughing along with it and will update you later in the week… I’m waiting for it to become un-put-down-able any minute now!!!
(and I’m sure you have glazed over all of that and have fixated on my lovely hook-holder-roll- (yes, another present from my sickenly talented pals-the bar was just set way too high this year) not only is it beautiful and fantastically useful, it matches the granny square perfectly!!)
Lovely idea, I may just join in. Though what happens when you are acually reading about 10 different books?!
Just photograph the pile of them!!!!! I too am reading several at the moment, (dotted around the house, several in the loo as you know well 🙂 ) it would be a great post actually- all the books on the go and the diverse subjects being read… (well mine are hilariously diverse!!)
I had a hard time getting into “Hedgehog” myself. So much so that I finally put it down and never picked it back up. Love the granny square! The colours are brilliant!
Eeeek, Erin, don’t tell me that!!!!! I’m having a hard time getting through it too, I’ll give it another night and see!
I love the colors in your crochet! It’s a skill I hope to learn soon. I’ve heard good things about the book. It was an almost-pick for my book club one month. I’ll check back to see what you end up deciding about it. Hope it gets better.
I love those colors. How cheerful!
A friend is going to loan me the Red Tent. What else do you have to say about it? I’m not sure if it’s my type of book or not…
You have a great color combo going! Love it!
Cheers from chilly Latvia!
I really, really enjoyed it, hugely interesting story. Let me know what you think!
I’ve learned how to crochet granny squares last week and now I’m making a blanket out of them… I love the colors you used for this one…
Thanks for the lovely comment, Emily! I think Dad looks wonderful at 80, too! BTW, I’m #43 on the Yarn Along – thanks so much for sharing the link 🙂
Ha ha. It was at around 35 when I last checked! Hope you are feeling better after your awful flu X
love your granny square!!!
You’ve got a beautiful blog!
And that blanket looks so varm and colorful, makes me dream of spring (now with all snow outside).
Awesome colors in that granny square, I really need to try grannies again and you’re right, I fixated on the roll. I made my sis one for Christmas and I LOVED it and completely forgot to photograph it, of course. Arrgh!
Jen, I try to photograph everything, and to make it a habit- I’ve mourned the lack of photos so often!!!
Love the colors and your hook holder is beautiful. Making a needle holder is on my to do list.
Haha, yes my eyes were definitely drawn to your lovely hook case *grin*. It is lovely!!! What a great present and I love the bright colors of your granny square 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting on my socks to 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!
