March 7th Yarn Along

Joining Ginny's Yarn Along again.  Ginny says:
"~ 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. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~ "

I love her blog.  This is my first blog post since the week before we moved way back in late January.  I haven't found the box with Joaquin's hats yet and it is cold and windy here (my apologies to those who live where 52 degrees is "warm" for this time of year), so I decided to crochet a new one for him since I am much faster at crocheting than knitting.  I started this last night and hope to finish it before he comes back from his visit to the "plane museum" with his Papa. 

I love the color combination and the yarn texture.  I am also nearly done knitting this simple washcloth for my husband.  I like having something simple to knit when I am sitting in our foster parenting classes.  It helps me relax and stay focused and keeps my overly busy mind from wandering.

 I like the way the simple pattern allows the colors to really show up and keeps this simple design from being boring.  I am reading this book and it is helping me to do a better job with Joaquin, for which I am very grateful.
I discovered this book through reading one of the blogs linked to Ginny's Yarn Along.  There is a lot of value in sharing through blogs.  Thank you for doing that.
