Knitting & Reading - Yarn Along!

With all the gorgeous weather we have been having, not a lot of reading or knitting has been happening. I have been knittings some washcloths and crocheting their matching "keepers". Currently working on a red, white and blue set. Any left over cotton yarn I have I make a very small crocheted bowl or base that I turn into pincushions to go into my sewing cases along with a matching needle book.

I am slowly reading a few books at once depending on my mood and where I am in my day - only reading a few pages here and there. When the kids are out playing and I can grab a few minutes in the gazebo I am reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. A wonderful read for in the garden! Before bed I am switching between People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks and Austenland by Shannon Hale (reading on my iPad on Kindle app) depending on what I am in the mood for.*

**Joining in again with Ginny at Small Things for Yarn Along. Such a fun way to get
inspiration and see what others are reading and knitting!**

(I just opened an Amazon affiliate store in my right hand side bar where I will be putting all the books that I refer to here at Mommy Made In MN. Thank you for visiting!)


  1. Hi sweet Carrie! Your knitting is lovely! The red, white and blue is so cheerful! I love your ideas for the leftover yarn. The books you are reading sound wonderful! I love to read and usually have two or three going at once! I hope you continue to have gorgeous weather! It is all rain here! Love, Paula xo

  2. I've read both Austenland and the Kingsolver book - did you know they're making Austenland into a movie? I bet it'll be fun!

  3. I am getting ready to read Animal Vegetable Mineral. I heard it was great.
