Yarn Along


It's Wednesday, so that means it's time for Yarning Along with Ginny!
These books are both finished, The Elder and I are participating in a Mother/Daughter Book Club with some of her classmates and the book this month is Clementine by Sara Pennypacker. We finished it last night, and I was surprised how emotional I got when I was reading it.
Fun story, interesting characters, and well-suited to a first grade reader.
The other book is Cleopatra A Life by Stacy Schiff, which I read when I was on my Mother's Day weekend adventure. I haven't Yarned Along since then, so I thought I'd slip it in here.
Really interesting story.
I'm knitting some sweaters for the Elder, the first one I made I ran out of yarn, so it's a little skimpy, I decided to try it again with different yarn, but she chose almost the identical color.
What are you knitting and reading today?

I love that blue! But also, I think I would curl up into a little ball & cry if I got that far along & then had to start again...

You are brave to have started over - I might have thrown a fit...I love the colour your daughter chose!
