Yarn Along: beach knitting

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

Few things are lovelier than beach knitting. Upon learning that our two developing in utero are of the male variety, I put aside that very feminine Christening dress and started on some handsome baby sweater vests. Pattern is by Bley Hack and I found it for free on Ravelry. Used up my two skeins of Berlini Ling in a pretty tan color. One down, one to go! My second vest is knitting up quite nicely with a pretty blue cotton yarn from Louisa Harding Yarns. I figure I better get my knitting in now because I surely won't have much free time after the twins arrive.

There hasn't been much time set aside for reading, but I am still making my way through David McCullough's The Greater Journey. I keep meaning to read at night, but on evenings when I'm not in rehearsals I'm usually falling asleep with Mayumi around 8pm. I've always needed a lot of sleep, but gestating twins requires so much rest! And calories! But at least they will be well-dressed!
