Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along :: 


I am so exited that I finally have something to share with you all. I think the change of seasons and the time change has really spurred my creative side and my desire to read more. I finished The Coincidence of Coconut Cake by Amy E. Reichart. It was the perfect book to escape in these past few days since there has been so much anguish and tragedy. It would make the perfect romantic comedy movie. Two of my favorite things about this novel are that it is based around cooking and love. It is just a happy read (with a few sad moments). My next read is Little Woman in Blue by Jeannine Atkins. It intrigued me at the library because it is based loosely on the Alcott family. They were a very interesting family based on some nonfiction books I have read. 

I have finished a cowl (pattern: forest glade found on www.naturalsuburbia.com). I only had one skein of this lovely yarn from Blue Brick Crafts and I know isn't very wide but I do like that is almost like a piece of jewelry rather than an accessory to keep the cold out.  I have to say that my pictures do not do this yarn justice. The colors are just great. I also finished the last of winter hats for our boy. He was not having a modelling session to show it off, so maybe next week. I am starting the Isla Wrap for myself with Madeleine Tosh yarn (grey owl).  I am also working on a few gifts but I can't show them here because it will ruin the surprise.  

The days may be getting colder but my knitting needles are heating up!

  2. Oh I love that yarn! What a pretty cowl. It may not be very large but I bet it keeps you warm just the same.

    1. It is actually quite warm. The woman who dyes the yarn does an amazing job.

    1. Thank you! It is so fun to make cowls. A scarf but it stays on your neck. I finally have a drawer dedicated to my knit things. It so wonderful to open the drawer and see all my hard work.
