:: Yarn Along ::

Another week with Ginny, over at Small Things, to yarn along and share what I'm knitting and reading. Leave a comment so I can visit and get inspired for new projects or new reads.


On the needles :: I got my order from Knit Picks and I immediately cast on the sweater I've been promising #3. The yarn is Wool of the Andes in grass and I'm just doing a percentage raglan with instructions from here. Part of what drew me to the Knit Picks yarn was the very affordable price on 100% wool. I'm seeing that part of the reason the price was so awesome was that the skeins are so small...I've already used one skein so I'm thinking I'll have to put in another order. I also cast on a pair of baby pants in Knit Picks Swish DK yarn and I'm getting to use my new book! Both projects are going quickly and give me plenty to work on in my sit-the-afternoon-away-end-of-pregnancy-ways.
Ravelry links, here and here.

On the nightstand :: I finished Fablehaven (#2 :: 8year old :: has also finished it now and we both loved it!) and all my other books were due at the library so I pulled out my trusty Harry Potter to give me something to read before I fall asleep at night.

Linking up ::

Very cute sweater. Of course, it could be that I love that color green you've chosen. ;-) said...

I really loved seeing the quilt I made and gave to you
makes me happy when people use what I give them. Thank dear. Love mom and the sweater is great! Found an box of old buttons, we will have time to go through when I am down form Pey's Bday.
