Yarn a long, Finally!

I have been wanting to participate in Ginny's Yarn-a-Long for quite some time.  I think since it started many weeks ago. I have had lots of fun looking at what everyone is knitting and reading.  So today is my big day.  I actually remembered on the correct day and I have taken some pictures.....such progress.

I am currently reading Drowning Ruth.   I am really enjoying this book.  I bought it at our local library's used book sale in the summer.  I'm more than half way through.  I think the story flows nicely and there is just enough information that makes me want to keep reading to find out what happens next.  I love plots like that!

As for my knitting I have been working on two projects.  The Orange Green socks for my daughter that are in the "loud" colorway are more than half way finished.  That means one sock is done and one is left to complete.  My daughter loves them and cannot wait to wear them, it has been quite chilly here.

My other project is the Elderberry Wine Shawl.  This is a long term project and  I am savoring this knitting experience.  The yarn is a silk/wool blend and the pattern is intricate. The designer did a fabulous job charting out all of the directions I have to concentrate when working on this shawl, so that leads to very little multitasking.  I meet a group of knitters twice a month at a local coffee shop and I just show this shawl.  I have yet to master talking, eating and lace knitting all at the same time.
