Yarn Along April 2019

Knitting another baby blanket with KnitPicks Shine Worsted (of course), a variation on this well-loved pattern. I’m on the second book of All-of-A-Kind Family, although I’m obviously much above the intended age range (I don’t have much mental space at the moment, and I like to read books I feel I “missed out” on in… Continue reading Yarn Along April 2019

Yarn Along and Crafting On Link Up

I linking up with Ginny’s Yarn Along and Nicole’s Crafting On. I have, of course, more than one book going (and 2 more projects on the needles although I’ve been focusing on this one for awhile), but this was the prettiest arrangement. The blanket is Purl Soho’s Mosaic Blanket which is free and actually very… Continue reading Yarn Along and Crafting On Link Up

Yarn Along May

I finished the green book, but I don’t feel like taking another photo. I haven’t made much progress on the either the books or the knitting since I took this. And of course I have more projects on the needles. I’m linking up here for Ginny’s Monthly Yarn Along.

Yarn Along: Entrelac and A Little Taste of Poison

I am linking up again after a period of laziness here at Ginny Sheller’s Yarn Along. You will have to forgive the iphone photo. And the junk at the bottom; my room will never stay clean. Since I am knitting two items and reading two books (just kidding, I have several books and knitting projects started,… Continue reading Yarn Along: Entrelac and A Little Taste of Poison

Yarn Along

I am linking up here again. I actually finished this book yesterday. Wow. Read it, but prepare to feel the horror. The descriptions are not graphic, but between the style of writing, cruelties mentioned, my previous WWII college classes, and my imagination, I really got the feel of cringing fear. I still don’t think it… Continue reading Yarn Along

Yarn Along

I am linking up here again. I usually have several books going, but I do not always read them at the same pace or evenly split my time between them. Recently, I have given the same attention for this stack although I will probably speed up the Patricia St. John book (Rainbow Garden; you can… Continue reading Yarn Along

Yarn Along

I am linking up here. I actually have 7 projects on the needles. I dread the casting on and counting, so I decided to cast on quite a few projects and put some aside for later. Shown above is a Katniss cowl for my sister. I am re-reading N.D. Wilson’s 100 Cupboards trilogy. I love them,… Continue reading Yarn Along

Yarn Along

I am knitting the Moonrise shawl as a selfish interlude between baby knitting projects. I also have a Christmas project in the works. I am trying Never Let Me Go; I am not sure if I will stick with it or not, I just burned myself on a book. 

Yarn Along

I am linking up here. I am knitting the Spruce Cowl, and reading an A.A. Milne mystery from this list of little known mysteries. 

Yarn Along

I caved and finally bought the Holden Shawl pattern. If I pay, I would prefer to pay for a more unique design (this stitch is not an original one), but I did not want to wait to get this class and figure it out myself. Oh, well. I definitely want to try this with a… Continue reading Yarn Along

Yarn Along

I have not participated in one of these in forever; I am linking up here again. I am working on this skirt in a cotton silk blend yarn. I am planning on lengthening it a couple inches. I am rereading Northanger Abbey; this is supposed to be a light distraction while I try to make… Continue reading Yarn Along
