~ 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. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

This week I have had plenty to read! Not much knitting has gone on. Though I think of picking up my needles constantly. Of a certain KAL I should start! Knitting carries with it a sense of calm. Those needles weld so much power for me. And I have needed the calm that comes with when I pick up my lastest knitting project. The reason- We are looking at houses this past week and trying to choose a house(in our budget) that will fit us all. Needless to say, I have needed to knit more than I could.
Friendship Bread by Darien Gee. It is really quite good! I love reading about friendships between women-- all the people in this book are characters I can relate to. It is the start of a whole new series about the town of Avalon in which these 3 women live in who are baking Amish friendship bread and healing over events in their life with the help of each other. As well as passing their starters all over town! It makes me want to create a starter but then who would I give all those bags too? I am more of a homebody that I realize, I think! I am not the type of person who does chain mail type of things-- I don't want to put another person in an awkward position of saying no nor am I bold enough to ask. But who's to say I won't get the urge to create a starter after the end of the book? We shall see.
I haven't gotten to much knitting accomplished this week. But I am very excited to say that I have done a 1 row buttonhole successfully--twice using Elizabeth Zimmwerman's method! EZ sure knew what she was doing! I have about 10 rows or so before I stop increases-- then the real fun begins-- LACE! Well, enough lace to keep me occupied!
Totally off topic but each week I have received comments to what I am writing and I love them! THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR KIND AND THOUGHTFUL COMMENTS! I am truly grateful! I haven't quite figured out how to respond to each comment nor do I know what the etiquette on how I should respond--email or how to add replies to my blog.... What do you all do? How do you handle them?
