Yarn Along


I have been thoroughly enjoying my second citron shawl this past week.  It is slowly growing as each day passes.  The yarn is lovely to hold and it has the tiniest fuzzy halo that I am enjoying so much!  The only other project on the needles are the socks.  I am near the heel flap of the second sock.  Last week I finished the hat and the finished photos are in yesterday's post.  I have some ideas of what I would like to start knitting next but for now they are only ideas.

I finished The Language of Flowers and it was oh so good!  It is a great book filled with different kinds of love, defining motherhood, wishing for hope and embracing disappointment.  The book is perfectly balanced with sadness and happiness.  My new book is When God was a Rabbit and I only just started it a few days ago.  So far it is interesting.  I am still reading An Everlasting Meal which I find filled with bits of knowledge.  Just the first chapter had me believing that my cooking could be revolutionized.

What are you knitting and reading?

  5. We are reading the same book. Funny how often that happens with the Yarn Along posts. I also really like Tamar's book. Who knew you should taste the water!

  6. Wow - that citron is moving along quickly. I don't know how you do it!
    All of your books sound wonderful, I'm going to put them on my wishlist.

  8. The shawl is coming along nicely, love the colour :) I have several books on the go and hardly have time to pick them up! I tend to read house magazines instead for 10 minutes :)

  17. Looking good! I loved your orange hat too. It's all making me long for fall. I'm reading the Awakening by Kate Chopin for my book club. It's much more interesting now than it was in college.

  20. Every time I come to your blog and see that lovely citron I tell myself that I"m going to make one. So on SU I printed the pattern and now I just need to go the yarn store to get some lovely lace yarn. I haven't bought yarn in 8 months because I was doing the stash busting challenge, but I can't take it anymore!

  21. The title of the book is definitely interesting! I might put it on my to-read list. :)

  22. Great color for fall. I've been eyeing that pattern on Ravelry. Look forward to seeing how yours turns out :)

  23. Lovely earthy brown shade. I had a brown sweater once (I didn't knit it, just owned it!) and I wore it to pieces. The right brown really does go with everything!

  24. Love it, this pattern is just what I need right now, and yours is looking beautiful!

  25. I love the brown, and it makes me wonder why I've never knitted with that rich color. I really love it so far, and can't wait to see it as it unfolds to being wearable.

  31. I love the citron pattern, and I feel like I haven't seen one in that colour before---it's really lovely, so rich and tree-ish.

    I've been meaning to check out When God Was a Rabbit (mainly based on the title, I must admit) for a while, so I'll be interested to know what you think of it as you read. :)
