Yarn Along

Joining in for another Yarn Along today.

I finally got around to re-starting my sweater that I frogged a couple of weeks ago, and now I think I am finally doing it right. I am by no-means an expert knitter, but these instructions are certainly not the clearest that I have ever read. If I didn't have a clear photo (via ravelry) to check in with, I probably would have done it wrong again. I am sure it is me, and my inexperience, but it has still thrown me for a loop. But fingers crossed that there will be no more frogging!

The orange and gold colorway peeking out from the bottom of my photo is Phoebe's plain vest, in the yarn that she "needed". I have set this aside, for now, as I think it will be a good project to work on when we do a bit of traveling in the near future.

In the world of reading, I am working on finishing up The Body Toxic and also The Maze Runner, which I need to get back to the library. I am enjoying The Maze Runner, but it hasn't yet captured me like Hunger Games or Divergent did. (ahhh, tween literature). Once I finish up these books, I am eager to get back to reading Game of Thrones.

What are you reading? What are you knitting?

Pin It Now!


  1. Sounds like the pattern is not written as clear as it could be. I think you're an intermediate knitter and you've knit sweaters before. Good luck!! (And riggers crossed!!)

  2. Hope the sweater works out better this time around.

  3. Hope you don't have to frog it again! It's a lovely pattern and gorgeous colour yarn you have chosen :)
