{Yarn Along} :Gretal

~ 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?

This week I haven't gotten a lot of knitting done, household chores (a.k.a more laundry than usual and a basement clean-out) needed to be addressed instead.
I did however manage to finish one of the hats that my sister requested for her little girls
. {Project notes here.}

I plan on doing some modifications to it for the next one, maybe adding some eyelet further up than just the brim, and using nicer wool. I always like to use the cheaper stuff when i'm "winging-it", so to speak.

Reading has been slowed a bit this week, I did start another book though on top of the ones i'm already reading. Mark and I saw "Les Miserables" last week which inspired me to re-read it. As good as the movie is, it's so much more about the music than the depth of the character development- (Which is fine, it would be 8 hours long if they did both character development AND music.) 
I hadn't read the book since high school though and had forgotten how much I enjoyed it. 
This one might take me a while as i'm reading it secondary to other books, and on top of that, I'm reading it on my phone since my e-reader went kaput. It's a slightly frustrating way to read, but at least I still have access to my downloaded books!

P.S. Don't forget that week two of the lexicon project is going up tomorrow over at HouseFullOfJays.


  1. Oh my goodness, the hat is darling!!!! Love the color too! I can't say I've ever made it through Les Miserables, and have yet to see the movie, but you've inspired me a bit to maybe give it a go again. I always love reading books and then watching the movie after.

  2. Cute hat!!! I love the back of the hat and well as the brim :) I read les mis in HS too, I have yet to re read it, it is such a commitment!!

  3. love that hat! and the color is great. i have not yet read Les Mis... maybe i should give it a go.

  4. I'm still so impressed by the hat! You are incredible!

    And Les Mis...I've had it on the shelf for a while. I keep wanting to read it considering I love the classics so but it. is. so. long.

  5. Love that hat - the back is so neat! Les Mis is on my reading list for sure - glad to hear you like it!
