Yarn Along



Do you recognize the sweater?  Yep, you are seeing the teas leaves cardigan reconstructed again!!  I am eighteen rows from having the body complete.  And yes, it is fitting much better!!  I went down a size and went down a needle size.  I am so glad that I ripped it out two weeks ago.  It was a sad but necessary process.  Just think maybe, just maybe I might be done with this sweater by the end of the month.  The sleeves look super fast and easy and button bands are nothing......my fingers are crossed.

I am reading book number 7 in the Anne of Green Gables series entitled Rainbow Valley.  This book is all about Anne's children and friends.  Of course there is adventure involved.  I must say when I started the book it had a whole story feeling to it.  Anne of Windy Poplars and Anne of Ingleside had more of a short story feel to them. I was not fond of those books because of that.  However, I am glad that I read them and would recommend them.

It looks like the weather is going to be changing into crisp fall air!  I am so excited about this. Wouldn't it be just fantastic to wear a scarf or a pair of mitts------pure bliss :D

  1. The tea leaves cardigan is such a pretty pattern, I definitely want to knit one for myself one day. I'm glad you are happier with the new version now. It's always so hard to rip out hours and hours of work but sometimes it's necessary. I often need a night's sleep before I can bring myself to cast on again, being so frustrated and even angry. But in the morning I'm usually at peace and just give it another go. Wonderful colour by the way, that will be a very pretty piece!

  6. I can't get over how much you have accomplished is such a short time...wow! And your getting fall crisp air? I am so jealous!
    Thanks for the knitting help. I think I understand, I just read the pattern from the opposite way?

  7. I'm impressed with your (second) progress on that sweater, you must be pretty fast!

    I love how knitters are always so excited about cooler weather, not many other people seem to be!

  8. I love the tea leaves cardigan pattern, especially in such a yummy golden color.

    We're getting crisp fall air too...and it looks like much more to come starting tomorrow. Nothing makes me want to curl up with a cup of soup and knit more than the coming of fall.

  9. We're starting to get into that crisp air here. They're saying we may see frost this week? Eep! I'm ready to start wearing my hats again. :)

    So glad that the second attempt is going much better for you. Looking forward to seeing the progress next week!

  13. Love the color on your tea leaves. I'm jealous that you are so far into Anne's life. My daughter and I just finished Green Gables together and are getting ready to begin Avonlea. She's in love with Anne so far. :)

  14. Crisp air, what's that? No memory of it. ;)

    You're almost up to my favorite book of all time - Rilla of Ingleside!

    Blessings, Debbie

  17. You are amazing! That was a speedy re-do. It looks wonderful!

  18. Good for you for ripping it out and starting over! Glad it's fitting better. I rip out rows practically every project, but that's because I mess up a lot :) Your yarn color is so up my alley by the way....bring on the warms!

  19. It looks wonderful! Great decision, I say!

  20. The ripping out and starting over process is always so difficult but ultimately worthwhile.
    I just love the colour and pattern of this cardigan!

  21. I love that color!
    I never got into Anne of GG.
    What age are those appropriate for? Maybe "tweens?" I am going to start reading the LIttle House series to my 5 year old and see if she gets into it.

  22. Your sweater is looking lovely. Ripping out is so heart-wrenching, isn't it? But now you will have a wearable garment instead of one that will sit in the back of your closet, right?

  23. I need to read the Anne of Green Gables series! It was so long ago that I read the first book, but I remember loving it. I'm always looking for a good read!

  24. Glad your ripping out is paying off. Ah, autumn, the perfect time of year!

  25. Oooh, i'll tell you what's pure bliss - that color is so fall, so early Halloween and glad to know the make up is going well.
