Yarn Along

Joining with Ginny of Small Things for this week's yarn along.

I have been feeling a but under the weather the past few days and have been exhausted. Which means that I have been choosing sleep over both reading and knitting. But, the good news is that I am almost finished with my sockhead hat, and only have about 20 rows of the decrease left to go!

Over the weekend I spent a long time browsing ravelry and deciding on what to knit next. I will leave the surprise until next week, when I am 100% sure, but I think it is going to be another something for me!

Still reading A Game of Thrones and enjoying it so far although I am only about 100 pages in.

What are you reading? What are you knitting?

Pin It Now!

  3. Yay for knitting for yourself :) Hope you feel better soon.

  4. Keep going with your hat. It will be done soon. Great yarn by the way.

  5. When your body tells you to sleep, there's usually a reason for it. Don't fight it. Your hat is looking great!

  6. your hat is really looking great and it'll be done with still some cooler weather to enjoy it!!!!

  7. Game of Thrones! Game of Thrones! Game of Thrones! You are my new best friend!!!! :) I am on book 3. FYI Do not watch season 2 until after you have read book 3. My library has the first 2 seasons on dvd. Not sure about yours. It is safe to watch season 1 after reading the first book.

  8. What a cute hat! My hubby keeps talking about reading/watching Game of Thrones, so I will be interested to know how you like the book! Be sure to let us know! Enjoy the rest of the week.

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I read Game of Thrones a few years ago, but never read any more books of the series. I'm sorry you are feeling under the weather. Get well soon. :)
