Yarn Along


I am currently working on two projects while I romantically dream of three yet to be other projects.  My sunshine yellow shawl is heavenly to knit.  The yarn is beautiful in person, there's a slight halo but the silk and cashmere give it a softness that makes me want to keep knitting forever.  The pattern is complicated enough to keep me on my toes.  The hat is my tv knitting project, I tend to make few errors while knitting round and round.  Oh and if you haven't seen my blog post from yesterday, I finished my wicked cardigan (finally).

I started a new book this past week, Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman, who I just love to read because I love her writing style.  However this story is a remake of Wuthering Heights and I'm not sure how I feel about that.  To me the classic is a stand alone book, one of my favorites.  I am still in the beginning and I'm still thinking back to the classic.  I'm hoping that after a few more chapters I'll stop comparing and get engrossed with the current plot.  Stay tuned.

What are you knitting and reading this week?

  1. I love the color combinaation in your hat. And there isn't much better than yarn that just begs to be knit, is there? :)

  6. I love your colour choices. The sunshine yellow would be ideal for autumn knits (takes a mental note). Your shawl will be very pretty x

  8. Beautiful colors! I'm so partial to yellow leading into fall and winter. I always need some brighter colors to make it through those seasons.

  9. Really beautiful yarn choices, as usual, Karen!
    I see autumnal colours creeping in which is making me crave a (correct) seasonal project. I'm interested to know what the three projects-to-be are..

  10. That yarn is pretty scrumptious looking. Wrap yourself in it and never come out scrumptious!

  11. Yellow is my favoritest color, so I am just *loving* your Sunshine Shawl! I haven't read that title yet (I love Alice Hoffman, too). I remember seeing the title at the library, but I may have skipped it because it is a re-telling; I'm not very fond of those types of books, although I did like The Flight of Gemma Hardy (which I read after seeing it here).

  13. What a beautiful color! I have been thinking of doing one of these posts because my bedroom is littered with library books at the moment! I just try to keep a clear path of escape in case of emergency:)

  14. I love your yarn choice and the project looks beautiful! I'm with you, when it is a great work of literature I agree that I don't want anyone 'remaking' it, but like you when it is an author like Alice Hoffman, I'm willing to give it a try.

  16. I am loving your wips - the yellow shawl looks wonderful!
    Alice Hoffman is great, we recently had "Dovekeepers" as the chosen title for our Online Book-club and it was a super read. I have never read "Practical Magic" but that is my all time fav movie (maybe I should read that at some point....)

  25. Nice! I tend to have several things going at once also. Right now I'm trying to finish a hat for Max to match his sweater. And I'm reading Major Pettigrew's Last Stand and loving it.
