yarn along

I bound off on the Nantucket throw last night as well as the Lori Shawl (two projects in one night!  woo hoo!) and pictures of those finished knits will come after weaving in ends and blocking.  I cast on the Precious cowl last week sometime, my first time knitting lace and working with a chart and I really love it so far.  After the crispness of the linen in my Lori Shawl, this super soft yarn feels luxurious.  It was a perfect small project to take backpacking with me this last weekend, which I did, and didn’t get as much time to work on it as I had hoped being that we were constantly dealing with winds and rain.  It was still really fun to knit in my sleeping bag by head lamp while the winds howled and whipped outside our tent.

I’m still reading Wild and Free, wrapping it up in a couple of days I hope, but I couldn’t resist starting a novel of some sort.  I’ve seen Ginny recommend My Antonia as one of her favorite novels and I spotted it at the library and figured I must check it out.  I’m just barely into it but enjoying it so far.

Joining with Ginny today and her weekly yarn along.

  1. I just finished My Antonia a couple weeks ago after seeing Ginny recommend it so highly and I really loved it! I hope you do too! Your knitting is beautiful!

  2. Isn’t it lovely to bind projects off? Too bad the ends don’t magically weave themselves in… 🙂
    I love your lacy white knitting, and the picture of it with your book is beautiful. I have read your blog at different times and always enjoy it. 😉
