Yarn Along

I am pleased to introduce the Storm Cloud Sweater (or the Thunderhead Sweater? I’m not sure yet). It’s the same as the Sunset Sweater – a basic child’s raglan rollneck  – but in a different color: gray mixed in with a little bit of dark sea-green and grayish-blue. It looks exactly like the way the sky looked tonight when I was driving home just before dark tonight. The Sunset Sweater is off needles, by the way – I just need to piece it and work the neck. I’m excited about both of these projects.

The book in the photo is Edward P. Jones’ All Aunt Hagar’s Children. I’ve had this book for many years – I bought it right around the time when Jones’ The Known World came out – but never opened it until last week. One of the stories we read in the workshop I took is in this book – the story is also called “All Aunt Hagar’s Children.” It was a fantastic story, and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the book soon.

And did I mention that I’m tired? I’m really, really tired. I’ve gone to bed before 9:00 each of the last four nights, and still I drag all day. I’m very much looking forward to a weekend of knitting, reading, writing, and perhaps a nap or two.

Yarn Along is, as always, hosted by Ginny on her blog, Small Things.

    Your Storm Cloud Sweater looks great and I love the description.
    I hope you get some rest, being tired is the pits.

      Thank you! The sweater is fun to work on. There is definitely some rest in my future, but I tired myself out for good reason (intensive four-day writing workshop), so I have no real complaints. Thanks for your comment!

    Love the color of the storm cloud sweater.

  4. We’ve been exhausted here. Grey days, sick children, heavy work loads. February is hard. I went to bed around 8:30 last night, and I’m a night owl.

    The book title intrigues me. What is the story about?

      That’s interesting about the February theory. I used to be a teacher, and I was always aware of how tough February is in a school environment. I’m not sure it applies to me now, because I’m not teaching and am living in a climate where there’s little change in weather and temperature over the course of the year. But maybe…

      This is a collection of short stories. I have only read one of them so far, and it was one of the best short stories I’ve ever read. Looking forward to reading the rest of them soon – this weekend!
