Yarn Along

{ Yarn Along : January }





I finished the Milo Sweater Vest last week and later in the week I put it on our little guy. Lo and behold it is a perfect fit (almost too good). I don't suspect he will wear it for long but that is okay because he looks super cute and I can always save it for any future babies. Almost done my Downton Cowl with only one more set of lace to do. It is knitting up nicely and I love the color of yarn. I am thinking of starting another shawl but I might knit up some hats and little doll sweaters for the kiddies. Oh the possibilities. 

I finished reading Big Little Lies. It was a good read. Not my favorite book and I had a hard identifying with any of the characters but it had a great plot twist so I ended up liking it but not loving it. I am finally starting Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen. She is one of my favorite authors and I love all her books. So, I know that she won't disappoint. I have been saving this book because I hate reading some good and then waiting for months or even years until the author writes another. 

My Himalayan Salt Lamp is finding a renewed place in my heart these past few weeks as the weather has become cold and dark. It just cheers me up looking at it.

    1. I really like Ms. Allen and her books. They are just enough story for me when I just want to read something nice and light and the stories are set in the south. ( which I hold close in my heart)

    1. Yes. I would say give it a try. Like I said, I don't love it but there is a good plot twist and that is always fun when reading.
