Yarn Along

Today is the yarn along that Ginny hosts at her blog, Small Things.  It is a wonderful way to check out what everyone is reading and working on.

I finally finished my book, The Forgotten Garden, on Monday and I loved it!  It was a great mystery read and I enjoyed the way the author wrote the story for three generations.  So every chapter was a different time period.  I did guess most of the ending but there was one surprise that I did not even suspect.  My new book is Whitethorn Woods by Maeve Binchy.  I have always liked her writing so I hope I am not disappointed.

My knitting remains the same.  I am working on the Elderberry Wine Shawl, still doing the repeats of chart E.  I am also working on the body of the Valley Cardigan.  Everyday I alternate my project to work on.  Yesterday, I had little chance to knit.  My husband cleaned out his side of the closet and we hauled 13 bags to out of the house to a donation center.  I think I need to work on my side of the closet now.  Anyways I did pick up the shawl to knit and made a mistake which took an hour to unknit and fix.  After that I just did not want to knit.


  1. Great color on that Elderberry Wine!

  2. Beautiful! I love the colour as well!

  3. Your knitting is gorgous! I have to go along with the crowd and say the Elderberry Wine color is great too.

  4. Looks like a beautiful project. I may have to pick up Whitethorn Woods from the library.

  5. I love the red you've chosen for your cardigan. It looks so lush. And I'll have to check out the book you just finished. I like mysteries and period novels, so it sounds like I might like it.
