Yarn Along 6/08/2011

 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? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr.

It is the best part of the week for me! I get to write about what I am reading and what I am knitting! We went to the library this morning to pick up some books that were on hold for me and NOW I have plenty of books to read! I am like a kid in a candy store!  Which to read first? I selected The Kitchen House by Kathleen Gissom and from the first page I was drawn in.
I am knitting on Mason's Summer Love shirt. I have had so many issues with this project. None of my problems are the pattern's fault! Too heavy, too short, not enough yarn! So, I went to Hobby Lobby this week, they had a sale on "I Love This Cotton!"--$2.49!  I now have enough yarn and I am knitting like mad as I have a deadline--June 15th! Keep your fingers crossed! The boys spent some time in the lake today-- so I could catch up on reading and knitting.  Taylor (Eldest) couldn't help it and joined in to catch some fish!

We are enjoying each other's company so much lately- sharing little jokes and I swear sometimes she is reading my mind-- much like my husband does.  She is so incredably smart--love math and science!  LOVES soccer! Hates the shorts they sell nowadays because they are too short and doesn't care one whit about boys right now! Besides someone called Alex Pettyfer...  I really could go on and on, she is a good kid and good to her mama-- I am grateful for her. Now she isn't perfect--she has issues.  BUT she makes me proud to call her mine! There are so many more things I could say But I know that she may stumble on it soon and teens don't like it much when moms brag on them.
I have to go for now-- I hear there are ducks down at the dock and fish that need some bread so I am off to help little fingers tear some bread that fish can nibble on!
Please look for next pictures of my other beautiful daughter next week-- she just went to her first formal dance (in 7th grade!)
