The last few weeks have been crazy for me, so I’m a week late with June’s Yarn Along post and I don’t have much to show as far as knitting progress, but I couldn’t let any more time go by without participating of my favorite linkup.
Yarn Along is a monthly link up hosted at Small Things. The point is to share our yarn-type projects (such as knitting, crochet, or similar) as well as the books we are reading. I love watching others’ projects develop, and of course I love hearing about the books people are reading, too! You can see everyone’s linked posts and the guidelines at the host’s site, here.
I didn’t accomplish much in the knitting department this month, and therefore I don’t have any new pictures of my knitting projects. I’ve been preparing to move, dealing with randomness from life (including getting new tires for my car after getting a flat), and focusing on blogging and reading. I did finish a few mug cozies, but then I packed them up before taking pictures! It turns out mug cozies are a great help when packing candles. I wrapped my candles in them, and they all got moved safe and sound.
Reading has also fallen prey to the chaotic way of my life at the moment, too, but hasn’t completely disappeared. I’m trying to speed through The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michelle Richardson, because it’s due back at the library on the 12th. At my current pace I think I will only be one day late.
I’m also reading The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (The Hunger Games #0) by Susanne Collins, and almost everything in it has been a (good?) surprise so far! I’m not very far in, but this one also has a close due date back at the library, so I can’t let it linger.
I’m rereading Disruptive Witness by Alan Noble with my morning coffee. This is a wonderful book and I’m getting just as much out of it this second time around as I did the first!
I hope you’re all staying safe in this uncertain time, Readers. Curl up with a good book when you can, and always look for the truth.
Until the next chapter,
Snap! I didn’t manage my usual Yarn Along post because we moved house. Hardly managed any knitting or reading either. How’s your unpacking going? We can see the end in sght now. Your books look like good ones.

I’m getting close to having everything out of their boxes, but actually finding a place for everything is another story! I’m hoping to be finished in the next week or so.
This is interesting! I’ve always wanted to try crochet and i dared myself to purchase crochet materials so i can start learning. 😀
