Yarn Along : Feather and Fan

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading (though not at the same time!), 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? ~Ginny Sheller


Recently I got in touch with a local photographer looking for some newborn photography props.  She liked the look of a baby sleep sack I knit a while ago and was also looking for a white textured blanket.  I can't wait to see some of her work using these knitteds--newborn photography is so adorable!

I've been trying to make some more time in my day this past week to read.  I used to be pretty good at fitting in a half hour before bed, but my evenings have been taken up with hand quilting these days and I work until I'm about to drop.  So this week I've been carving out some time here and there to work on Little Women.  I read it as a girl and I'm appreciating it all over again as an adult.  It doesn't hurt anything that I found this gorgeously bound copy at Half Price Books for $7 either...

Linking up with Ginny this week for Yarn Along.  Head on over there to share your wips, check out her current projects and so many other beautiful works by very talented bloggers!

  1. How wonderful to have some of your knits featured in newborn photos! I am sure it will be lovely. I love Little Women! I was thinking of starting it as a read-aloud to my daughter after we finish The Wizard of Oz.

  3. That's a beautiful blanket, what wonderful photographs will be made with it. I love photos of babies. I use audio books because I never find time to read. Then I can knit and listen, it's lovely.

  7. Pretty! I like the feather and fan. Little Women really is a perennial favorite of me. I haven't ever actually reread it, but I do think about aspects of it often. In my family I, of course, am Meg...right down to the twins....
