Yarn Along

Quite a bit of knitting this week, but nothing quite ready to share just yet..

I finished reading Water for Elephants, and I am so sad it’s over.
The book has been sitting on my nightstand for almost a week now. I’ve been to the library twice, but I can’t bring myself to return it. I don’t even want to read anything else because it won’t quite measure up.

The story weaves between young Jacob, who, in desperation, jumps a train and enters the world of the travelling circus in the mid 1900s – and present day Jacob, in his nineties, in a nursing home.

A beautiful, beautiful story; and a lot of the outrageous circus anecdotes haven been taken from circus history.
Loved it (can you tell?!)

    It really was quite a good read. I loved present day Jacob and wondered about his life now. Love the pile of woolens.

    That’s quite the basket of knitting. The ribbed item has me intrigued. I can’t wait until you share the finished item.

  3. I love your knitting pile, my friend! I have to read that book… I received it for a Christmas present, but something has held me back. Maybe when it comes out of storage at the new house?
