Yarn Along

Joining with Ginny at Small Thing's for this week's Yarn Along.

I almost didn't play along with yarn along today because, well, I have not really been knitting. I have been busy-- all fun busy-- but super busy, and it has been oh-so-hot and honestly, I just can't bring myself to pick up my knitting needles. We are going on a road trip in a few days though, and I am hoping I will get some car knitting in! I have about 1/2 of one sleeve done on my sweater, which I have set aside to knit a little vest for a friend's new baby. I had better hurry before the baby is not so new anymore!

I  am currently reading Running with Scissors. It is hilarious, but in a very uncomfortable way... so much so that I almost feel guilt reading it. I heard they made a movie out of it, and I can't even imagine! Have you read it?

What are you reading? What are you knitting?

Pin It Now!


  1. I love the color of your yarn! I also understand the feeling of not wanting to knit since it's so hot outside. :)

  2. We've had a cooler than usual summer so knitting has been an easy, actually addictive, habit. We've had summers so hot though that you wouldn't be able to pay me to knit. Totally makes sense.
    Car knitting is a great way to get some work done though! Hopefully you have some a.c :)

  3. It's unbearable here on the southern east coast, that is why I am only knitting at night.
    Baby knitting is fun and it's quick so you should be okay :)

  4. I just did some car knitting and it was wonderful! We have been busy with moving the kids and I'm exhausted from the work :)
