Yarn Along

{ Yarn Along } 

Back joining up with the Yarn Along after a little break because I have spending any extra time working on an ABC sampler. I am working on two different shawls right now and it is really just a matter of what I am in the mood to knit. 

Knit #1: Melodia Shawl by Janina Kallio (two colors)

Knit #2 : Simple Spring Shawl by Leah Michelle Designs

I just finished two books that I wanted to share, The Red Notebook by Antoine Laurian & Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo. Both of these books I recommend for anyone looking for happy and easy reading. The first book is a lovely story set in France and it is about missed meetings and possible sadness that had an happy ending. I just really liked it. The second book is a young adult novel and I read it because my oldest girl wanted me to read it aloud this summer. It was a cute story and I will be reading it to her this summer each night before bed. I just started reading Alexander McCall Smith's book, Emma. I really don't have any opinions yet but I am intrigued by the concept of a modern retelling of one of my favorite Austen novels. 

Happy Knitting!

  1. That shawl in the two colours is lovely. Enjoy your book.

  2. I mustl take a note of that book and look for it in the library. I recently read Who needs Mr Darcy - a fun read about one of the Bennett sisters.
    Will the the shawls be for gifts or will you keep them for yourself?

  3. Both of those shawls are so pretty!

  4. I love both of your projects! Now I'm off to favorite them so I don't forget about them...

  5. It seems that Jane Austen's irresistibility is increasing! Very pretty yarn.

  6. beautiful projects and good sounding books! I love that you're reading aloud to your daughter this summer! :)
