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. 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. 🙂
