Yarn Along


Reading: A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle. I read this book as a kid, but I remember absolutely nothing about it except that it involved time travel. I bought this copy at least 10 years ago and have since collected the other books in the series, so I'm finally reading this one again. So far it's living up to my expectations and I'm loving it!

Knitting: Remember this sweater? It's been on the needles for nearly four months now, and that drives me crazy. For the last month (at least), all I've had left was about 6 inches of one sleeve and the neckband. I finally got motivated to work on it again, and it might actually be finished by the time this post goes up. {It's finished! I still have to weave in the ends and block it, but I should have finished photos sometime next week.}

{Yarn Along is a weekly link up hosted by Ginny where you can share what you've been knitting and reading.}

    1. Thanks! It was a super simple sweater, so I don't know why I had such a hard time being motivated to finish it. :)

  2. That book is one of my favorites. I reread it as adult a couple years ago and I was just HUNGRY as I read it. I keep meaning to read the rest of the series but I think I'm kind of saving it. That's silly, i should just read hem. Haha! Lovely knitting!

  7. I think I kind of enjoyed A Wrinkle In Time. But sci-fi is REALLY not my things (this was for a book club and someone tried to compare sci-fi and fantasy, um, no; one is pseudo-sciency and futuristic, the other mystical, magical, reminiscent). The other books, particularly one, started spooking me out though.

    1. Yeah, I remember liking A Wrinkle in Time when I read it as a kid, but I've never read the other books.
