Yarn Along


Can you believe it is August 3rd?  I can't, the summer has flown by for me.  Now if only the super hot sticky weather would fly by I would be in heaven.  This week for the yarn along I am reading Anne of the Island.  Anne Shirley is at college and enjoying her friends and is still not quite sure she likes/loves Gilbert. We all know they are destined to be together why is she the last to know?  I am loving the series and the happy attitude of Anne.  

For knitting, I am working on my featherweight cardigan.  I am now on the body and am loving every single stitch of stockinette!  I can watch tv or talk or do both!  My daughter has picked up her knitting (GASP) and I am able to help her without stopping my knitting.  I would love to be knitting some complex lace shawl but it is all working out with the demands of my family.  My other project is the moss road scarf which is a gift for my father in law.  I pick this up when I am not working on the sweater.

  1. So what is your daughter working on?

    That Anne girl.. she's stubborn! ;)

    I like the color of your cardigan. It looks like it will be light weight wear, but will provide nice warmth, too.

  2. The featherweight cardigan looks lovely! I hope to read Anne of the Island with my daughter one day. We just finished (slowly) reading Green Gables so Avonlea is probably next for us. :)

  3. I love knitting that doesn't require all of my attention so I can knit and watch a movie or visit with a friend! Beautiful cardigan -- I can't wait to see it finished! -- Kathy at http://www.needleandspade.com/

  4. I just finished a moss stitch scarf myself! I had the most trouble keeping the pattern even. I must have a block about k2, p2.

  5. Sometimes the truth is staring you right in the face and you STILL can't see it. I think this is what Anne's problem is. ;-)

    The featherweight is lookin' good!

  7. Your cardigan is gorgeous! I love that pattern and will add it to my list of things to knit.

    It's so wonderful that your daughter is knitting too.

  8. I love the color you've chosen for your cardigan. Those stockinette portions can be such a blessing when other things are going on around you. I try to always have something like that to work on if I get a chance to knit while my boys are awake.

  9. I love that cardigan and yours looks so light and dreamy. Although the weight of that yarn makes me break into a cold sweat....but you're never a knitting wimp like me. ;)

  11. I love to knit and visit at the same time; I think they just 'go' together. So, what is your daughter knitting? I tried to teach my daughter, but she has no interest. She would rather be working in her yard. The cardigan you are working on is great and I do love that color.xx

  16. Great pattern! It looks like it wouldn't take a whole lot of yarn... Nice.

    I swore when you started up on this series I was going to read it again. I still haven't started. You're going to finish the whole thing before I finally pick up the first book... sheesh!

  17. The cardigan is lovley. And sometimes some mindless knitting that doesn't taking counting and charts is just wonderfully relaxing. I wish my daughters would pick up their knitting again. I'm hoping when winter arrives, even if it is just to keep them warm!

    Blessings, Elizabeth
