Yarn Along

Thank you to Susannah Conway , for her brilliant idea of The August Break - which I joined in briefly for until even that became more than my slow, sleep deprived brain could handle.
We've been a busy household packing and planning, drinking mad amounts of coffee, learning to eat food, learning to sit all by oneself, getting haircuts, and of course, NOT sleeping. Forgive me, but in 3 weeks time my blogging will, once again, become somewhat here and there. I am at the mercy of the internet cafe as of September 24th, while our little family jets off until mid-january. On the up-side, being that we'll be wandering about in new, unfamiliar territory, things may get a little more interesting around here...

This week I am joining Ginny over at Small Things in sharing what's on the hook, and what's being read.

There. Now you know, I have a not-so-secret love for adolescent reads. Oh yes, that means Narnia, Harry Potter, The Airborne series, and um hmmn, even a little bit of team Edward. Mockingjay is the third and final book in the Hunger Games series. I've knocked these books back pretty quickly for someone who has not had the capacity to read ANYTHING outside of a blog post, or very brief magazine article since 2 months into her second pregnancy.

The blanket is for my youngest son. I started knitting it maybe 3 days before his birth, took it all out about a month ago, and started crocheting it. I don't know why, I just did. I really hoped it would be finished before we left, but now I just hope it's finished before he's 10 (he is currently at the 6 month mark). :)


  1. I wish we'd been able to chat more at TK's. Where, oh where are you off to? Did I miss that post? Or is it coming? = )

  2. I read a lot of youth literature too. Well, and a lot of Dr.Suess too, but then he is my favorite! Did you like the Hunger Game Trilogy? I liked the first one, the second was ok and wasn't really thrilled with the third. My son loved them all! xx

  3. I am totally the same! Love the adolescent fiction. You should give Sarah Dessen a try, love those books. Especially The Truth About Forever!

    I just finished a crochet baby blanket in a light pink and light green for some good friends. Looks great!

  4. Cindy - Me too! Have got to get it together and post our trip plans... Soon, very soon.

    Tracey - I like Dr.Seuss too. I really enjoyed the first two Hunger Games books. And yes, especially the first. My husband said the third was okay. I'm liking it so far, so we'll see...

    Nicole - I will definitely look into those books. Thanks!

  5. I've been hearing a lot about the Hunger Games lately- I must read them. It's always nice to see what you are up to. Good Luck on your journey!
