Yarn Along


This week I decided to start a new project for me.  I've been focusing on holiday ornament making and yesterday I hit the wall.  I just had to hold new yarn and start a new project.  This yarn is beautiful, it is Quince and Co's Tern.  This pattern caught my eye when I was up in Maine.  The yarn shop had a lovely sample on display.  It was an impulse buy that brought me great joy!  Here is my project page.

I'm still reading The Tiger's Wife and I like it!  Phew.  I was worried last week because it's a strange book.  I am enjoying how the story is unfolding and I love when fiction flips from present to past.  It still continues to be a strange story but I'm okay with it, I have a hunch it will continue to be a strange book.  Meanwhile I decided to show you two magazines I've been flipping through while eating lunch.  So far I'm not too thrilled with the Interweave but in the Jane Austin magazine I like.  I know of two shawls that would be lovely to knit.

What are you knitting and reading?

  1. That Quince & Co is divine - I have still never made anything in their yarn (I think I'm scared to now! Too much investment pressure!). What colour is that called?

    You're right, The Tiger's Wife stays strange!

    1. The color is called Barnacle :) I just love the name which was another factor in buying the yarn!!

  2. Lovely pattern. That will be a nice sweater. I've never read The Tiger's Wife. Sounds like an interesting change so I'll keep an eye out for it.

  12. That sweater is so sweet, may have to make that one! I was wondering how that magazine was. I will leaf through it on my next trip to B&N. Thanks for stopping by:-)

  13. I'll have to queue the sweater. My list keeps getting longer. I was a very long line at the fabric the other night and picked up a knitting magazine to pass the time. I may have to go buy it. There were a few things in there that i really liked.

  14. So much envy all in one photograph. (:

    I really want to try Quince and Co's yarn. And I'm waiting (impatiently) for my local yarn store to get the Jane Austen magazine.

    I'm so pleased with myself - I finished two projects yesterday! Woo! Of course, the other projects I need to work on would be easier if certain little people would sleep normal hours (or pay less attention to what I'm doing)! (:

  15. That is going to be so pretty! Great yarn choice. It looks very plush. Sometimes those impulse buys are very satisfying.

  17. I cannot wait to get my hands on the newest Jane Austen Knits magazine. I've been pretty meh about Interweaves Knits for a while, though there are a couple of patterns in the Winter one that I wouldn't mind making.

  18. What do you think of the Quince and co. yarn so far? I've looked at it several times, but haven't yet bought any. Thank you so much for sharing that pattern! It makes a gorgeous addition to my queue. :)

  20. Ooh, lovely pattern you've chosen.
    I can really relate to that feeling of hitting a wall and needing something new.
    I had no idea that Jane Austen Knits was a magazine - I thought it was a book!

  21. Pretty yarn and cardigan. That yarn looks soft and squishy.

  22. Yep, it does stay strange - but I enjoyed it too.

  23. Great looking pattern! And yay for knitting for you :) I'm looking forward to that... someday ;-)

  24. Love the cardigan you've started! The detail should show up nicely with the color you chose! The items in the Jane Austen are so darling, aren't they? A friend let slip she's working on a jacket from it for my little girl. Squee!

  25. I keep reading about people using Quince & Co. yarn! It looks nice and cuddly! Can't wait to see the FO

  26. "I just had to hold new yarn" may be the best line I have ever heard! Wonder if hubby will understand it when I hit the yarn store next time and come home with a bunch... ;-)

  27. Oh, I do love that sweater pattern! Maybe one of these days I'll get around to knitting something for me :) Glad you are enjoying your book despite the strangeness!

  28. that will be a gorgeous sweater! there's nothing like starting a new project, isn't there? my problem is that i start way too many projects and have a hard time finishing them because of that.

  29. That little Alys cardigan is so cute no wonder you can't wait to get started. I'm well into my stock knitting now but can't wait to do another sweater...I've had so many nice comments about my Annabel.

    Happy knitting deb
