I’m onto sleeves for Noah’s sweater.  I’m so enjoying this knit and can I just say the tubular cast on is brilliant?  But I’m also a little worried these sleeves are looking too big.  It’s weird to do a sweater this way, bottom up and attaching sleeves later and I hope it all comes together well.  I’m starting to think I won’t be done in time for his birthday, which is the 20th.

I picked up To The Bright Edge of the World from the library and am falling happily into this adventurous story of a Colonel in 1885 exploring the vast Alaska territory, and his newly pregnant wife who longs to leave behind social restraints and join her husband in the icy mysterious lands rife with wild animals and rumors of wilder natives.

I’m joining up with Ginny at Small Things for her weekly yarn along link up where we share what we’re currently knitting and reading.  Affiliate links included in this post.

  1. *GASP* Eowyn Ivey has a new book out?! I’ve been waiting and waiting for it and I checked a few months ago and didn’t see anything new coming from her. I so very much loved “The Snow Child,” did you read that one? It is one of my favorite contemporary books for its beauty. I will be requesting it from my library ASAP and it may end up on my Christmas list if there are holds on it. Thanks for the tip!
    I love the color on that sweater, such a nice green. My girls always want teal, pink, purple, but never green, my favorite color.
    Happy knitting, Martha!

    1. I haven’t read Snow Child but if I love this one, I will! Yes, Noah came to me a few months ago and requested a green sweater and hat, and then he sat with me and picked out this particular green and I love it, too!

  2. “To the Bright Edge of the World” was one of my favorite books this year! I loved the epistolary format and teh setting and the added bonus of illustrations and photos! I’m hoping to read “The Snow Child” soon. Good luck getting the sweater done in time. I love the texture on the sleeves!
