yarn along: Maisie Dobbs and crochet

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.

I decided to take a little break from non-fiction and indulge in some end-of-summer mindless reading. Thankfully the public library came through with the three most recent Maisie Dobbs mysteries. I've devoured two in the past week (a record for me since Mayumi was born almost five years ago) and I'm looking forward to starting Elegy for Eddie. I definitely have guilt about reading for pleasure, especially when there are more urgent projects wanting my attention... but sometimes one simply has to make reading a priority.

Since I've been spending every free moment with my nose in a book, there has been less time to work on my little crochet project, but I have been able to add a few rows here and there. Perhaps when the books are finished then I will have a big surge in productivity with my yarn work!

I've not heard of the series you are reading but it sounds quite enjoyable :)

I haven't been doing any reading for pleasure at all, focussing on too much 'doing'. And then this evening, my husband gave me a gift, the final item for my maternity hospital bag he said... A kindle! I think I'll just read for the final days of this pregnancy, to heck with everything else!

I love the blue! And I love the texture too! What will it be?
