Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along :: 




                                     

























Knitting news! I actually have something finished. Ha! I am slow in the summer and find myself spending time outside with paints or going for walks with my children and husband than knitting. But alas, summer is over and fall is here. It is my favorite season and I am getting back into knitting more. I finished my Adama a few weeks ago and I had to block it twice because I didn't like the outcome. Then I just forgot to take some pictures of it. But here it is! I love the soft pink (dogwood) of Quince & Co. Lark yarn. It was a fairly easy knit and I love the diamond pattern. It will be cozy around my neck in the near future. 

I am working on a simple garter stitch blanket with a set of seven different colors from Knit Picks
(Billow is the yarn name). I wanted to work on something that was easy and simple while watching TV, chatting with friends, or playing with the kids. It is going to be a long term project but one that everyone in my house has already tried to put dibs on. 

Lastly, I just finished the ribbed band of my favorite beret pattern, The Real Sea Urchin Beret. I made a blue one about two years ago and I really wanted something grey. The yarn is from Madelintosh  but I forget the name. 

I just started reading Fifth Avenue Artists Society by Joy Callaway. So far- so good. I recently read Ann Patchett's new book, Commonwealth. I did not like it as much as I did her other works. I am also savoring every single article and picture from the latest Taproot. I try and stretch it out until the next one arrives. 

Hope all is well. Happy Knitting. xo.

  1. I love the colors of your blanket -- and your autumnal gerbera daisy display! Good to know about "Commonwealth." I've been meaning to check out Ann Patchett forever, but maybe that's not the book to start with.
