Joining in this week with Ginny to share two of my favorite things...reading and knitting. Right now I am reading "Under the Banner of Heaven, A story of violent faith" by Jon Krakauer. I just finished "Into the Wild" by him and it was one of the best books I have read, so I thought I would give this one a try. I just started, but so far it is great. The knitting is the Striped Yoke Top from the Spring/Summer Debbie Bliss magazine. I am knitting straight on circular needles due to the amount of stitches cast on. It will be my first top, so I hope it goes well. Wish me luck. Also we are dealing with some health scares in our extended family, so please think good thoughts that things will go well.
