Yarn Along


There is something with the change of seasons that inspires me to try new recipes.  I went grocery shopping yesterday and picked up a few magazines and now I want to cook some new dishes.  The fallish kind that warms your insides.  Anyways, I finished the Picoult book Sing You Home and it was okay.  That is all I'll say about the book.  Lamott's book never fails to make me laugh and think at the same time so she's all good reading for me.

My knitting is coming along.  The socks for my son are going and I do believe I will run out of yarn, but no worries.  I'll just dig through that massive odds and ends of sock yarns in my basket to complete each sock.  This shawl is my savoring knitting, I am enjoying each blessed stitch.  I love the short row shaping and the two colors paired together are growing on me!

What are you knitting and reading this week??

  1. I love to try new recipes so please let me know if you find a good one. Yesterday I prepared dinosaur kale, chick pea soup and it was a keeper. Just threw everything in the pot with some vegetable broth and chopped garlic, let it simmer for an hour and served. Yum.

  2. I have knit socks from the same yarn in your picture!:) They have held up well.

  3. So many pretty greens and blues! I am getting into the "Fall" mode of cooking too. I have visions of apple crisp and pumpkin pie. Yummmmm!!!

  4. I so love the color way with the earthy browns and the deep blues very pretty.
    We ate kale, onion, garlic with lemon and risotto yesterday- delish- been a vegetarian for over 3 years and have never looked back. This is a great mag- you'll find a ton of inspiration.

  5. I love the green's & blue's of your knitting! I am anxiously awaiting being able to start cooking the "Fall" foods that we love. Today the sun is shining (YAY!!!!!! I am so beyond excited about this it's not even funny!) and the humidity is gone. (And my husband and AAA got the car to start last night & fixed. DOUBLE YAY!!)

  6. I love trying new recipes as well - if it wasn't for some of the pickier eaters here, I would do it more often. If you find a yummy recipe, would you share it with us?

  10. I love the blue and brown together in your shawl. Our weather turned mild this morning. I hope it stays a while. That bowl of soup on the cover looks delicious.

  12. I feel the same about cooking, I think I just enjoy it more as it gets colder! Not that there is any sign of autumn in the air yet here..

  14. I love the brown and blue together. And I also love your magazine, I always find a recipe or two in it to try, and they are always well enjoyed. Have fun experimenting.

  15. Be sure to pass along any good recipes! I'm the same way with the cooler weather coming (it's here, by the way!) Yay! But anywhooo...agreed on Ann Lamotte, too. Funny and good for the soul. I'm reading Me Before You right now...love! I may not be saying that if I'm crying at the end, but so far, so good. :)

  16. We were tempted with some spring weather now it is back to winter - out come all the winter woolies. I'm reading A Fine Romance by Susan Branch and reading it
    S L O W to savour it.
    Love Leanne
    PS I won't bother picking up Sing you Home thanks for heads up.

  17. Nice colours you are working with. Loving the two blues in the shawl.
    Socks like leftovers.

  18. I'm having withdrawals from knitting... {sigh} Your beautiful colors make me crave getting back to it, but I have a LONG list of chores to be done and knitting isn't going to fit on for a couple of more days. I'm with you on loving Ann Lamott, an excellent writer. blessings ~ tanna

  19. We enjoyed a fall chili for dinner last night, white bean w/ chicken. So good. It's raining here this morning, and spaghetti is on the menu for tonight. Wonderful that hunkering down feeling is. :) Lovely knitting as always; I like your not-enough-yarn solution for those socks...

  20. I am very ready for fall cooking. Just a few more months for us ;)

    I personally really love the shawl colors. And eclectic socks are more fun.

  23. I really love socks and things that are made from multiple yarns:) Oh my goodness, it has been a busy few weeks around here. I think the only thing I've been reading consistently is Marion Nestle's What to Eat, but it is just so endlessly fascinating:)
