Yarn Along

I was craving a page turner and an addictive knit, and I sure got what I asked for! Last week I could not put down these rainbow leg warmers.  Each stripe knit up so quickly, that it was easy to say "oh, I'll just keep knitting till I finish the next stripe."  And on and … Continue reading Yarn Along

Yarn Along :: Kid Reads

I'm still working away faithfully on my blue Cassis cardigan.  I'm pleased to say that I am now on the second sleeve so, with a couple more good knitting sessions, it should be off the needles this week!

Yarn Along: 2 books + 2 wips

Last night … Continue reading Yarn Along: Travel Insomia

Yarn Along: I’m Baaack!

Well hello again, friends!  It's good to be back.  So sorry to disappear on you like that, without any notice or explanation.  All I can say by way of excuse is that I was going through a hard time personally, felt stuck creatively, and couldn't muster up the motivation to try to force it. But … Continue reading Yarn Along: I’m Baaack!

Yarn Along: A Spree

From Ginny: ~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs.  I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? I have been knitting and reading up a … Continue reading Yarn Along: A Spree
