I have wanted so badly to take my place in the Yarn Alongs. I read. That part would be so easy. But generally I quilt. I once learned to do basic knitting, but I didn't like it much, so I never pursued it. I have crocheted more than a few things, but mostly easy things like afghans and scarves. So, when I saw a pattern book for baby booties that labeled them "easy" I thought I would give it a whirl. I can do "easy." Or maybe not so much. But here is my one and only attempt at the Yarn Along.
If I had time to read for me I would read Dearie. I have started it, but it is a big book and I have so many middle school books to read that I have put it down for now. It is about the life of Julia Child. She was an interesting woman. I am reading The Dark Unwinding which is steam punk middle school literature, one of the competition books. I generally don't like steam punk, but I have enjoyed this one so far. It is a little weird and eerie but it has an element of mystery and history. I expect to have it finished by the end of the week.
