yarn along

DSC_0006

Our Bradford Pear tree is blossoming, bright chartreuse spots are appearing in the Forsythia against the neighbors old green shed.  It must be March, and spring is on the horizon.  I’m working on the last bit of color work at the end of both sleeves on my koivua.  I will finally have this sweater done when all the cold weather is behind us, won’t I?  Oh well, that’s how things go.

Still reading Gilead, though I haven’t made much progress.  Busy days.  What are you making or reading?

    1. I’m finding it a bit hard to get into, but have heard so many good things about this series that I’m determined to persevere. I vaguely remember others telling me that one of the books was hard to get into, maybe it is Gilead? Have you read the others?

  1. The textures and colors of your sweater are beautiful! It’s going to be lovely, and something to look forward to in the fall — I can empathize with finishing a project at the end of its wearable season. It’s a bit maddening, but at the same time I do love that knitting is a slower process in an “instant gratification” world; somehow it emphasizes the change of seasons and the passage of time.

    I’ve been meaning to read “Gilead” for so long, and your post has reminded me that I should go borrow it from the library as soon as I’m done my current charity shop find — “Chasing Mona Lisa,” a historical fiction novel that wouldn’t normally have grabbed my interest had my children and I not just looked up what happened to the Mona Lisa during WWII. I didn’t think it had been stolen by the Germans, but didn’t know *what* had happened to it! Anyway, the novel is interesting so far, if not my usual “read.”

    Happy knitting and reading and almost-Spring!

    Cheers,
    Shannon

    1. Thank you for your comment! I love to hear what you’re reading and making also. I agree about the slower process of knitting. Sometimes it’s maddening when you need a garment practically-speaking, but I do so love the slow work of it. I hadn’t thought of that, that it emphasizes the passage of time. Yes, truly it does.
