Yarn Along - Wildflower, Week 17

Greetings! Obviously one of favorite things is reading, but I also quite love knitting. Ginny over at Small Things hosts a lovely little link-up so once you're done here go visit and see what everyone else is up to.

Seaming is taking SO LONG. But I'm all but done with the first side, then it's on to the other side, weaving in ends, and steaming. Yeah, that's kind of a lot, I know. I absolutely positutely must be finished by Friday night, though, because on Saturday morning we're going to the park to take pretty pictures of us in our sweaters and then we're going to lunch in Pasadena as a group. So I have to be done.

I'm confident that it will happen because there's no babysitting this week for me until Saturday night, so I have all kinds of time in the evenings.

I'm making headway in Jack Hitt's book, Off the Road. I've decided that I don't like him as a person. He's very pessimistic and unlikeable and sounds like he needs to have a long conversation with his mother about why his worldview is so unpleasant. Or a therapist. I'm liking the stories, though, and the feeling of walking and how - as much as I dislike his overall attitude - he remains bluntly honest throughout the telling of his story. I also love that he tells other people's stories, and it's a great look at the human condition through a slightly different lens.

That's it for me today - next week I'll post some of our pictures from our park photoshoot and the final, finished project!  

What have you been knitting and reading lately? Let me know in comments and then head over to Ginny's to see what everyone else is up to!
