Yarn Along and more..

My favorite Wednesday ritual joining the yarn along on the Small Things.  Feeling pretty proud of my self with my crochetting the throw (not in the picture)  it's coming along.  I have been enjoying my knitting class and the hat is almost done.  Feeling pretty good about my knitting I graduated from knitting in the round to knitting and decreasing on 4 double pointed needles.  I have been watching other knitters for months and always wondering how they knit on all those needles and now I know.  Which gets me daydreaming about other knitting projects. 
As for reading since last week's yarn along I'm continuing to absorb The Write Start and put aside Julie & Julia. Last night I had an opportunity to listen to Lisa See and hear about her lastet book Dreams of Joy and see a clip of the movie Snow Flower and Secret Fan.  I got a sense from the crowd around me that Lisa See fans will go to see the movie even though they probably won't like it because they prefer the book.  Which got me wondering about the book.  Once the house was quiet and everyone settled I skimmed the whole book and I agree the book sounds better than the movie.  In Lisa See's own words
Books are their own art form.
Hope your are enjoying a good read.

I quite enjoyed Snowflower when I read it a few years ago. I'll have to check out her new title.
The hat looks great! It's so exciting to learn all those new techniques!
