:: Yarn Along ::

Joining Ginny, over at small things, again with yarn along. A single photo of a current knitting or crocheting project with a current read. I am really loving these posts, taking a moment to think about what and why I'm knitting or reading. I read...a lot. And I knit...not as much as I'd like but I do have 2-4 projects going either on the needles or in my brain.

I do love seeing what others are knitting and can always use some reading suggestions! Leave a comment so I can see what you're up to. And go over to Ginny's to see what others are up to.

On the needles :: My cowl. I had a couple starts and re-starts but I'm thrilled with the pattern I ended up with and I'm thrilled with how easily and quickly it is knitting and I'm thrilled with how lovely it is looking! Thrilled! I'm using Stonehedge Mill's Shepherd's Wool in lime green. (ravelry link) I also cast on for #5's socks I was wanting to make. I've never used such small needles and because of those small needles they are not going as quickly as I had grown accustom with my baby bootie knitting. I can't remember the yarn, my mom gave it to me years ago and it lost the wrapper. I think they'll be really cute and perfect for him though. (ravelry link)

On the nightstand :: The Friday Night Knitting Club is still hanging on. I've become such a slow reader. Though I totally blame it on only reading until my eyes shut once I'm in bed for the night. I was thinking of trading this book in for one of the others I have sitting on the nightstand but I'm sticking with it...some real interesting issues came up last night.

LOL I find it funny that you are thinking #5's are so small- my last couple of projects make #5's look big! it is all in your perspective I guess :) Your cowl looks lovely though, as do your socks :)

I was looking at The Friday Night Knitting Club at my LYS this past weekend. I think I'll have to try it.

While I would say that the FNKC was an OK book, I wasn't all that impressed with it. There could be a reason why it's not going fast for you.

stacy your knitting looks beautiful, that cowl is going to be just gorgeous! size 5 needles are small if your not used to using smaller needles. the good thing about going down in numbers is that when you go back up, your stitches seem to fly!
i brought that book with me on a trip and just couldn't get into it, so left it in an airport.perhaps it just wasn't for me (sometimes its fun to do that, with a note to enjoy!)

The socks are cowl are looking great! I have been on a cowl kick and wear the ones I've made quite regularly. You are inspiring me to make a pair of socks soon.

Your knitting colors are very pretty. I read all the Friday Night knitting books and loved them. Hopefully you will too!

Your cowl is looking very nice - and I do love green :-)

Your cowl looks lovely! I'm making one from the same pattern right now for my husband.

Hmm...I started that book but didn't get very far. I'm glad it pulled you back in. I should give it another go. Knitting it eating up all my reading time...
I LOVE the lime green!

Love the color of your cowl! And socks! Whew, I don't know that I will ever have the patience for socks! I hope Friday night knitting club picks up for you...it's been slow for me as well. Interesting characters, just not a very unique story if you ask me. Thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment on my blog!
Blessings,
