Yarn Along

Linking up at Small Things for Yarn Along this week.

I have not finished my scarf or my pink sweater. I am taking a short break from both of them. Currently, I am knitting this panel of XO cable. I plan on attaching it to a felted bag that I am still working on.

I have been spending the majority of my free time reading. I finally finished Uglies last week, and I will finish the next book in the series, Pretties, very soon. I plan to continue with the series and start Specials right away. I totally have a love/hate relationship with all of the characters in the books. Just when I think I can not take anymore of the storyline, something new and mildly interesting happens, and I keep reading. The books are young adult science-fiction. 

Personally, I would not let a teen younger than 16 read them. Most Uglies spend their time waiting to be a Pretty, and most of the Pretties spend their time partying, drinking, and hanging out in the "pleasure gardens." The books are written about the small minority of teens that want something more than a Pretty life, but there is enough of the shallow partying for me to rate these books PG-16. There is better literature for younger teens to read.

Check out what everyone is knitting and reading at Small Things.
