Yarn Along


I have so many projects going on that the progress of each one is slowing down.  Above is my pink cardigan which I love working on.  I am sure by this afternoon the body will be finished and a sleeve will take shape.  How exciting!!  I know I will be making another sweater with this pattern assuming I like the fit (fingers crossed).   My dad's Christmas socks are very neglected in my knitting bag as well as the fingerless mitts.  Since three projects are not enough on the needles, I started a very long term project-a circular lace shawl.  I have not made up a ravelry page as of yet.  Maybe today I will get that done.

My book.  It is good!  Seriously, I do not know why they had to advertise "Downton Abbey" as a lure.  The only thing that is common with DA is she is a servant and times are changing.  I think what makes this book intriguing is the story line keeps me wanting to read to see what happens.  So instead of falling asleep on the first two pages while reading at night, I make it to the end of a chapter.  Speedy reading for me!!  I am about half way through The House at Tyneford and I am so very glad that I impulsed bought the book.

What are you knitting and reading?

  1. Soooo love that pink yarn! I am usually a two page reader at bedtime, as well...but I've been reading about our friend Gemma Hardy and love the book! Making myself save it for a bedtime read actually, to make it last. Have a great day yarnin' :)

  3. That pink is awesome! And the book, well it sounds awesome. I think if I saw Downton Abbey on the cover I would probably pick up the book...so good advertising on the publishers part!

  8. I think you have more "active" projects than I do!!!! (Just 'cause they are on needles doesn't make them active, right???) I adore that pink color----what a happy sweater that is going to be. Can't wait to see that one modeled!!

  11. The cardigan is looking nice :-) I am disliking having so many projects going at once lately because I just want them all to be done. Especially with the colder weather approaching.

  17. I always love to see what you are working on, Karen :- ). That shade of pink is the *best*. I seriously love it. I've put this book on my list--I just finished The Flight of Gemma Hardy, which you read a couple of weeks ago, and I liked it a lot. You pick good ones! :- )
