Yarn Along {2}


 My first Yarn Along in a couple of months. That's not to say I've not been knitting in the meantime; I have, but I wasn't able to share as it was a Christmas present.

Anyhow. The current project is a baby blanket. I'm knitting this as part of the #knitforwinter campaign which is being run by Sunrise Senior Living, who along with having local care homes knitting for them, have recruited a virtual knitting circle of bloggers to help them knit items to be donated to First Touch. First Touch is a charity who support prematurely born babies and I was rather humbled to have been asked to help out. I might not be the best knitter, but I was certainly happy to pick up my needles for this cause. 

As for my current read: Swallows and Amazons, as I'm taking part in Alex's Blogging Good Read in January for which this is one of our chosen books, and I wanted to re-read it, as it must have been more than fifteen years since I last read it. Nostalgia alert.

  1. Swallows and Amazons is a book that always reminds me of one of my best musicians in the past at school- she was in my year 5 class and I was always lending her books to read and one day she bought Swallows and Amazons in and said she'd like to return the favour and lend me a book which was great as I'd never read it! Even when I see her now when she is in year 11 and she picks up her siblings from school, I always remember it!
