Yarn Along


Can you believe it????  I am on a new book and a new knitting project!  I feel so accomplished right now.  But before you completely believe me look at the next picture.....I have some assembling and burying of threads to attend to before I can say it is done.  I am hoping tomorrow will be the magical day for posting a completed project.  The coffee mug is my absolute favorite and I can't remember who gave it to me :/  I know it is quite old (like over 20 years?) 

I finished The Help and I loved it!  I thought it was one of the best books that I have read in a long time.  The characters were likable and believable and the storyline was interesting until the very end.  I also like the ending.  Sometimes endings are rushed or sometimes I think there is a better way to end.  If you haven't read The Help, I highly suggest giving it a read.

The new project is the Traveling Woman Shawl that I did make once before as blogged about here.  I really enjoyed the pattern and wanted to make it again in a solid yarn.  If you guessed that this yarn is Madelinetosh in Tosh Merino Light you know your yarn!  The colorway is Composition Book Grey (I love that name!).

I know you will think I am crazy but I am thinking of starting another sweater in a small gauge again.  I apparently haven't learned my lesson.  I am still mulling it about in my brain so I am not completely committed to being a glutton for punishment.
