Yarn Along - Sept 14

From small things -
~ 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 photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr.
Yarn Along - Sept 14
Another week has gone by! I've been really enjoying The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - it's the right mix of Women's Health History, science history, racial discussion and personal story. Last night, when the house was settled down for the night and the baby was fed, I chose to read more of the book instead of picking up the knitting. Now that's saying something!

Not that there has been a lack of knitting either! I've been still working on hexipuffs and a special sparkly project (one of 3 if all goes well). I think I will sit on this for a while longer before revealing it.

Cooler temperatures are supposed to arrive at the end of this week and I can't wait. Bring on fall, I say. Today is sunny (lovely) but warm and humid (ick) and all I can think about is fall weather and getting back to knitting bigger projects with wool - hopefully picking up a few sample and test knits again as well!

The Henrietta Lacks story is fascinating to me. I really hope I get to read that book someday too.

We were studying HeLa in my Soc class last week. How interesting! Love those hexi puffs!

Neat hexis! My daughter's summer reading for college was HeLa. I thought they would discuss ethics, but instead they pursued the universal healthcare topic. She has the book with her, but when she returns I'm going to read it.

How fun! I'm knitting a sweater for my 2.5-year-old son and reading, "Successful Serging: From Setup to Simple and Specialty Stitches." :-D
