Yarn Along- January 5th 2011

The first Yarn Along of the new year!
Ginny at Small Things 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 single photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
So this week, I have new exciting things going on :)
In the background in the December issue of Country Living (UK Edition).  I love this magazine, WAY more than the American one... apparently I am not the only one :)
Next to it is a new knitting book- fabulous charted colourwork designs for hats, mittens and gloves.  I sense some Christmas presents for next year in it ;)
The colourful yarn is a pair of socks.  I fell in love with the yarn in the post Christmas sales... and my socks keep getting holes in them.  I am hopeful a knitted pair will last better.
The white thing is a baby outfit for my neighbour's grandchild.
And I saved the best for last... the electronic thing is my new Nook Color.  E-books galore!!  I love this thing!

Check out the other projects over at Ginny's Yarn Along!

    Swanski- I LOVE the Nook :) So convenient, and far cheaper than the hardbacks. Plus it takes up less room which is the main reason I wanted it :)
