yarn along - smitten mitten

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a single photo and share it on your blog~ Ginny at Small things


right now there's a mitten on my needles...well, first half of the half of the first mitten = just a tiny bit ... I'm using a pattern from Ravelry - Ruba'iyat mittens but I've changed it a little bit - added the picture of a hippogriff to the middle of the square... nay, it's not a hippogriff, just lama with wings... because I love magical creatures (who doesn't? )

and I'm reading Mange, prie, aime (Eat, pray, love) in French - it was a Christmas present from my sis :) - Love it so far!

but you'll see many photos of my unfinished mitten and the same book in next couple of weeks because with exams and all the studying I won't have time to read or knit :/

  8. Love the color of the mittens. Eat Pray Love is book on my list to read.
    Thanks for coming by my blog. The book I'm reading "Don't Sing at the Table" by Adriana Trigiani is good. She is one of my favorite authors and this particular book is about her grandmothers and their lives and how they impacted her and what she learned. Very good so far makes me think about my grandmothers.

  13. Wow--those are some seriously impressive mittens. I have never done colorwork and am now even more intimidated! Eat, Pray, Love started out great for me. I read the first third of the book in a jiffy and then slowed. Enjoy yor studies!
