This week I have been knitting two projects and thinking about a third. My first project is the buttercup yellow scarf. I am nearly done with this knit. I think once it is washed and blocked it is going to look great and that is what motivates me to finish it. I am also enjoying working with 100% cotton yarn. It has a very nice feel.
My second project is this cardigan. I am following the featherweight cardigan pattern the second time around. I enjoyed making it before that I knew I would make another sweater! Here is the ravelry project page.
I finished Anne of Green Gables and you know I loved it. It is my third or forth time reading it. There were so many events that I forgot happened and it was like revisiting a friend I haven't seen in years. I am a sucker for romance and just love the end when Gilbert and Anne become friends and he won't let go of her hand during a handshake.....~sigh~ How sweet!! I was only going to read one Anne book but I think I might start reading Anne of Avonlea next week.
I am also reading Dark Places which is a very creepy book. It is too early to tell whether I like it or not but I must say I have a hard time putting it down!

Karen, the scarf it beautiful! Thanks for all the info you sent me, I now just have to make up my mind on which yarn to order...I love them all!ReplyDelete
I want to read your book. I love a book that's hard to put down.
The yellow looks beautiful! It will make a nice happy scarf. :) I too love Anne of Green Gables. My daughter and I have been reading it together and thoroughly enjoying it!ReplyDelete
I'm always thinking ahead to the next project ;-)ReplyDelete
But I'm not so good at using that as motivation to finish. Usually I just end up with too many WIPs.
The scarf looks like it will add a beautiful splash of colour to your day. I like the colour you are knitting your cardigan in too. I hope Dark Places doesn't creep you out too much. It certainly sounds very deep. JacintaReplyDelete
You know Anne will always draw you in! I love those books, though I could take or leave Anne of Windy Poplars.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see the Buttercup Scarf. The color is amazing!
Love love love Anne! I have been eyeing the featherweight cardigan on ravelry, can't wait to see yours.ReplyDelete
Ah Gilbert! *swoon* If I ever have another son, that name is high on the list. ;)ReplyDelete
I really like the yellow you're using. I think I am going to knit something in yellow (even though it's not my fave color -- it's enticing to me!).
I really should reread Green Gables, if only in preparation for my trip to Prince Edward Island in two weeks ... :) Can't wait to see what the buttercup scarf looks like once it's finished!ReplyDelete
Hmmmm...I think I'm due to reread that series, too.ReplyDelete
Oh, I got all tingly when I saw Anne in your bag! sigh. One day I will go to Prince Edward Island and walk with her down the white way of delight! Oh! Wouldn't that be a delicious location for a knitting retreat?!? I've recently discovered cotton and have been pleasantly surprised by it...that's what I'm knitting my BSJ in and it looks and feels excellent.ReplyDelete
I had such a crush on Gilbert as a girl...is that sad? Wait...maybe I still do. ;)ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to seeing the progression of your sweater!! I think i already said it but I love that colour!
I just popped over to your ravelry page and... whatever! I know that I am always impressed by what you 'whip' out. I had no idea! Still lovin' it all, now there's just more of it to love!ReplyDelete
i am not so sure about the creepy book... but the knits look great!ReplyDelete
Just love the yellow of the scarf and the stitch pattern is interesting. Betting it will turn out beautifully. and another Anne lover here as well.ReplyDelete
I haven't read Anne of Green Gables in years! I'll have to check that out from the library ~ my seven year old isn't quite ready for that yet.ReplyDelete
The knitting looks great!
Ok, that's it, I have got to read Anne of Green Gables. It has crossed my path one too many times!!! Thanks for the push!ReplyDelete
You know, I still have never read Anne of Green Gables. I keep thinking it would be a good read-aloud for my daughter and I next year...ReplyDelete
The color of that scarf is stunning! I can't wait to see it blocked and being worn. And the cardigan is already looking great.ReplyDelete
Oh I love that yellow color too! And Anne... what a dear she is! I spent most of last summer with her! ;)ReplyDelete
The windowpane cardi is really a pretty one... this second one will be a good companion!
I read Anne of Green Gables for the first time this year and can't believe I never read it before! It must be one of my favorites.ReplyDelete
Love the cardi...can't wait to see it come together!ReplyDelete
