Yarn Along - Finally!
After like a year, I am finally joining Ginny with her Yarn Along! I kept meaning to...but, you know...
Actually this is the first ever joining or linking I've ever done!
I really love the idea of sharing what I've been knitting and reading...it can open up such wonderful dialogue!
I am working on a scarf for my Mother-in-Law as a birthday gift. I am using Manos Maxima yarn in the Fire colorway. She bought me quite a bit of yarn for Christmas and I wanted to make sure I made something for her out of it. I am really enjoying the simple pattern and the rows it creates are wonderfully tactile. I found the pattern here.
I love the Ashley English books. Full of info, pretty to look at and simple to read. Thank you Ashley! This is actually my second time through her Keeping Beesbook as we prepare to get our bees (soon!). More posts on that later...
FO (finished object):
Using some more of the Manos yarn (Peach Melba), I finished my first clothing piece. Yay! I've made countless hats, gloves and toys but had yet to make a piece of clothing. I chose Kelly's In 3's Cardigan. It was so easy! I highly recommend it to any knitter, novice or expert. It knits up quickly and effortlessly. This one I made is for E, but I now have a request for one from F. As soon as I can finish C's overalls (which are giving me a headache), I'll cast on another.
What are you knitting/reading these days?
