For this week's Yarn Along, I just completed both a book and a knitting project. The knitting is the Star Crossed Cable Beret, which I've knitted twice in the last week. (It's the hat I decided to knit for Elizabeth with the blue yarn from last week's Yarn Along.) I enjoyed knitting it so much, that I decided to use some extra Blue Sky Alpaca suri merino, leftover from my vest, to make another one for a friend. This yarn is soft and scrumptious. I love knitting with it!
I also just finished A Long Walk to Water, which I read about on a teen book list sometime in the last few months. It's a short read, around 100 pages, but quite intense and full of action. I thought I might read it aloud to the kids, but it's really a middle school read. I don't think my younger 2 would handle the intensity and sadness quite yet. I still highly recommend it for middle school and older though.
