Don’t look now but I totally found a loophole in the rule about the orange cowl that I set for myself last week. I promised that I would finish the cowl before my next Yarn Along photo. The orange cowl is not finished, but that’s okay because the photo I am posting today is clearly not a Yarn Along photo. It has yarn in it, yes, but there’s no book, for one thing, plus there’s a stapler and a pile of rubber bands and – could those be some rotten pears? What kind of person would put rotten pears in a Yarn Along photo? Nobody I know.
I am still reading lots and lots of books, and I took a break from blogging this weekend to focus on my 20th high school reunion. Preparing for and recovering from this event took up more time than I expected. I’ll be back soon with more on War and Peace and PAT CONROY MONTH!!! and a really disappointing novel about Flannery O’Connor.
Have a great week!
Yarn Along is hosted by Ginny on her blog, Small Things.
LOL! You’re absolutely right, that is clearly not a yarn along picture. Nope, absolutely not, no way. I mean, just look at that stapler!
Although if it were a Yarn Along picture, it sounds like you’d have an excuse for it not to be finished – I don’t think I’d take knitting to a high school reunion 🙂 Hope it was fun, and I’m looking forward to the book reviews. War and Peace is one of those books that I’ve always thought of as good for other people, but maybe not for me…
When it comes to time management, sometimes I still think like a kid. A week sounds SO long when I’m planning out tasks, but of course it passes in a flash. I didn’t bring yarn to my reunion, but I did bring books (yes, more than one), but I had a great time and totally forgot I had them. 🙂
War and Peace! Woo-hoo! I can say that I, too, have actually read this classic. I’ve been trying to make it a point to read at least one (HUGE) classic a year. (I haven’t succeeded at doing so as often as I would like.) I gauged my reading of it for a year — from beginning to end. I was doing a lot of reading and writing, as I was working on my BA at the time, so I read it in small sections. Great choice! And I totally dig the photo — rotting pears and all. 😀 Good times.
Haha — thanks! I’m enjoying War and Peace, but I’ve got a lot of other projects going on that make it hard to concentrate.
