Yarn Along {Orange Stripe}

Hey everyone! I'm joining the Yarn Along over at Small Things again this week. It amazes how quickly a week passes by. I didn't get any reading done this week (I know, horrifying right?) so I am still on Eggs, Beans and Crumpets - and I have been listening to a collection of Sherlock Holmes dramatized shorts stories I received for Christmas. Even though I did not read much this week I did manage to get some crocheting done. I finished the white and am on the final leg of the scarf, the orange stripe! I had hoped to finish this week, but we had a very busy week, so I didn't quite manage that. My mom and I have been having lots of fun knitting/crocheting with friends every week, which is where I manage to get most of my work done. We also went on a mini vacation to the east side of the Phoenix Metrop this weekend - though we never even made it into phoenix proper. Mom and I went to a delightful yarn shop and I got several more colors for my ripple afghan! Anyway, enough chit chat, here is my picture this week.

Much tea has been consumed while crocheting this scarf, so I decided my cup of Lady Grey deserved a cameo this week.

Have a fantastic week, Hopefully I'll have a new project to write about next week!

Yarn Along {Wodehouse and a White Stripe}

Hey there, I'm joining Ginny's Yarn Along again over at Small Things.
Today I'm working on the white stripe of my Ireland scarf. I didn't have much time to crochet this past week, we spent most of the week cleaning house after the holidays, but I did get some reading done and a little bit on my scarf. I finished the Darcy Cousins last wednesday and ended up really liking it. I also finished up The Inimitable Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse last week. I was about half way through that and wanted to finish before starting on Eggs, Beans and Crumpets by Wodehouse, which is what I'm reading this week.
