Yarn Along



This week for the yarn along I think I am doing the same knitting and reading as last week.  For knitting I have finished one leg warmer and am on the second one.  My goal is to have it finished before the kids are home for Thanksgiving....the race is on!  The pattern is quite easy once you decide which needles to use.  My husband's sweater is chugging along.  I can honestly say I have barely worked two or three rows because of the leg warmers.  I am hoping that seeing it in the photo will spur me to pick it up.  I am two-three inches into the body.  The purple cowl is a knit for me that I started a week or two ago.  Just something quick and easy.  Again, I have been mainly focusing my knitting efforts on the leg warmers.

I continue to read The Physick book of Deliverance Dane.  Which is a very compelling read!  I have been drawn into the mystery and I love how I am getting a history lesson into the Salem witch trials.  The book has been flowing along for me and I do love when an author switches from different years while telling the story.  Give it a try!

Just a note to thank all of my fellow bloggers and sometimes worriers for the kind comments yesterday.  I am very happy and worry free at the moment.  Which is just the way it should be :)  I also have many ideas for future shawls, stay tuned!

  3. Wonderfully productive-looking photo! I enjoyed scanning through some of the knitting suggestions from your readers on yesterday's post (though, if Lori Ann is here, what's whipoorwill? I looked up on Rav to no avail, which of course only makes me more curious!)

  6. Sounds like a great read! I'm going to try to find it at the library. Your knitting is coming along nicely. I love the cowl pattern and can't wait to see yours when it's done.

  7. The race is certainly on but I'm sure you'll succeed in your goal - the color is very appropriate for your Thanksgiving deadline: reminds me of pumpkins.

  8. I love the way the colors in the book cover just blend in with the knitting this week! (You planned it that way, of course!!!) It looks so autumn-y; all you need is a nice cup of hot chocolate and a fire!

  17. Such pretty yarn. I feel like a lot of my knitting is in the black hole stage right now. Also I am spending too much time on "research"

  18. Lovely picture and the book sounds very interesting. My oldest daughter just finished The Witch of Blackbird Pond so we've been talking about that a bit.

  19. your knitting all looks so pretty karen, i am sure you'll get those leg warmers done on time, if not before! the book sounds good too, but i can't keep up with the reading, maybe when i can retire!

    i'll let little macaroon know but here's the link to the shawl i was talking about, i probably spelled the name wrong. yes, that would be me. :)

  24. My knitting slowed this week when the temps hit the 80's again!! I wish I could be less influenced by the weather. I want to wear leg warmers and cowls and fingerless mitts!! I guess my time will come, sooner than I think :).
    Have you read the books Shadow of the Wind and The Historian? I think you would like them knowing you like the Physick book :).
