Yarn Along: I'm knitting again!!

 The knitting in the back is the frogged first attempt.

 I am happy to report that I am finding time to knit again. After a dry spell I was wondering what was wrong with me. Knitting is such great stress relief there is really no excuse to stop knitting....ever.
So I am joining along with Ginny for the yarn along.
I am currently working on a scrappy length wise scarf  after I frogged the first after I made too many mistakes. I am having a difficult time with the linen stitch for some reason, I keep losing track of were I am at. Luckily most of the mistakes I have made the second time around are blending in.
This is a great project for summer.  Portable and simple. 

I even got a moment to knit during the kids swimming lessons! Just like the good old days.

 I am currently reading Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson. I really enjoyed this book from the start, very poetic and lyrical. The story kept reminding me of a movie I have always really liked. I didn't notice until I was over halfway through that it was the book that the movie was written after, that I believe even has the same name. I never knew the name of the movie obviously or I would have made the connection sooner. Although I know the story from the movie I am really enjoying the book.
