yarn along

I have started on my first shawl and really enjoying it!  It’s my first time knitting with madelinetosh yarn and it is truly lovely to work with.

I started Surviving the Island of Grace this week and am loving it.  It is a memoir, Fields telling the story of her leaving the east coast for a new life in the rugged wilds of Alaska as a newlywed with a husband who commercially fishes salmon.  I’m just a few pages in but she writes so beautifully about the gorgeous landscape of Alaska that you can almost feel and smell the sea and the bite of the cold air.  I plan to read it slowly and drink in Alaska!

Joining with Ginny + her weekly yarn along today.

  1. Shawls are so fun to knit……yours is coming along nicely! That book looks really interesting!

  2. Madeline Tosh is amazing yarn, Your shawl is making me want to cast on another one. Which I don’t need! I can’t wait to see your progress.

    1. Yes I heard about it via her book recommendations and knew right away I needed to read it. I love Alaska, love memoir, love writing and writerly types, love the story of a family, love homesteading.. so it was basically a no brainer. 🙂
