Yarn Along


Joining Ginny of Small Things


I have some beautiful yarn awaiting my hands and needles. We've had a busy weekend and I haven't had time to really start something new this weekend. But, we're going on vacation soon and I'll have plenty of car time and I can get started on Christmas gifts. 






I am starting a sweater vest from a book entitled Heirloom Baby Knits. It seems really easy and a very quick knit!




I am still reading Our Lady of the Forest by David Guterson and it is pretty good so far. He doesn't use  any quotation marks when there is conversation in the book and it takes me a back. Doesn't Faulkner write like this? ( I'll have to investigate) I also just received a book from my uncle, That Woman, The Life of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor. I can't wait to start it. 

Happy Knitting!!

  3. That cardi looks great and I love the green. Is that green yarn in your basket going to be for that pattern?

  4. thank you. The basket is actually a gardening basket but since we moved to a new place my garden never took off this year. Kind of depressing but we wont be here long and its onto someplace new. I bought it from The Tasteful Garden website.

  5. Change of pace is right! I love fall and all things that will happen but getting into a groove is never easy. Happy Knitting!

  6. Yes, I found the green yarn online and really liked it. I like dressing my girls in all kinds of colors.

  7. I will be curious to see how the Wallis Simpson book is - she is so maligned in popular thought that its hard to know how much is fact and how much legend.

  10. I wonder...is this the same David Guterson who wrote, Family Matters: Why Homeschooling Makes Sense? and Snow Falling on Cedars? Love that photo of your knitting basket :-)

  11. The best thing about car trips is the knitting! That is great that you are getting a head start on Christmas knitting. Im knitting on a Christmas gift right now myself. Yes, I believe Faulkner does eliminate the quotation marks which drives me batty!
