Yarn Along: Hat and Scarf

Joining Ginny over at Small Things for the regular Wednesday Yarn Along!
Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? ~ Ginny Sheller from Small Things

Knitting Project: Totoro knit hat with matching scarf.
In an effort to plan ahead and be prepared for next winter, I wanted to get a headstart on this cute little ensemble for Mayumi. So far I only have the pattern for the hat, but hopefully a trip to the yarn store will result in some choice, soft wool.

Books: Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry, Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne and The One Straw Revolution by Masanobu Fukuoka.
My little package from Amazon arrived two days ago with my new books! I started Jayber Crow on the airplane and was reminded of why I adore Wendell Berry so much - his compassionate, warm treatment of honest, simple people in the small town of Port William is so beautiful and life-affirming. I'm so excited to delve deeper into the story, and into my other reads. Now, to fit in some reading time...

So glad I discovered this blog on yarn along! I absolutely adore this blog! My fiance is half Japanese and half Mexican, so we can totally relate! :)

I do love Wendell Berry poetry, but have never read one of his books which is just sad. I need to change that and soon. Thanks for the book recommendation.

I need to read this book! I love the Totoro hat and the movie is really good too.
