Yarn along....and our first snow!

I'm still working on the circle blanket...inspired by this.We read a book every morning together (if you read my previous post...40 books in 40 days, but you could do a countdown just for December). I'm reading Alexander McCall Smith's Corduroy Mansions, which is okay, but I really love his No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books. I've read all of those, which take place in Botswana, and look forward to his next one, the 13th in this series, which is due out April 2012.

What are you reading and working on (a crochet or knit project with yarn)? Follow the yarn along here with Ginny.

Last night, we got our first real snowfall...it was so pretty, but sadly has melted this morning. Hannah and Olivia put on their snowpants and went outside to play, jumped on the trampoline (there's still a small pile of snow there, actually), slid down the snow-covered slide, it was really wet. Olivia made snowballs and threw them at our house.

So completely LOVE the circles!! Looking great! And congrats on the snow fall - we have nothing here in VT, which is completely crazy for this time of the year! My chickens don't know what to do with themselves, LOL!!

That is going to be really nice. I really like the circles. Also thanks for linking to that other blog. My world of crocheting keeps getting bigger and bigger. I had no idea there were so many possibilities!

Beautiful crochetting-- the circles are a great change from squares!

I look forward to seeing more of your circle blanket as it progresses! It looks really fun and very different from most. I love, love, love the No1 Ladies series. I've read one of his Isabelle whats-her-name's books and didn't really enjoy it all. Snow?! That is hard to imagine.

I really do like circles and yours are looking amazing. That will be one warm and colourful blanket.
Enjoy the reading it sounds like lots of fun.

I adore the circles.

I'm still trying to master the magic ring so I can start crocheting in the round. I'm sure your blanket will be beautiful when it's complete.

Love your crochet circles. Snow is gone here now, but will return. Love the mosaic pictures too. x
