Reading Again

I haven’t read a book in almost a year. About a week and a half ago, I started reading a blog (I suppose blogs don’t count as books; a shame, really, because I read a LOT of blogs) titled Yarn~Knit~Read~Lit. It inspired me to pick up a book.

So, what am I reading? An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott. It is about a country girl named Polly who comes to visit a rich family in the city. I am about halfway through the book. Thus far, I’ve seen Polly grow into a woman, move into the city (but not with the rich family) and start a music teaching career. Louisa May Alcott is a famous and well-written author, yet Jane Austen remains my favorite.

In knitting news, I have started on Block #7 for the International Fiber Collaborative panel. The block will be titled Spiral Applique Block, assuming no major changes are made to the design.

  1. Just saw your fantastic comment on my blog!! How nice of you to tell me! I do hope you are enjoying your book—a wonderful read!!


  2. Oh, I love all those old books! My favorite to read was all of the Anne of Green Gables series, I used the excuse of spending time to read to my daughter to get to read them all, way back when she was little, but I still have them all and look forward to reading them again with my grand daughter one day! I’ve never read this book, but I just recently got my new library card since I moved, looks like it might be a good one to look up, thanks for sharing!
