Yarn Along: The Last of 2014

Joining with Ginny at Small Thing's for this last Yarn Along of 2014! I can't believe that tomorrow brings a new year. Already!

Well, all that secret knitting I was doing these past few weeks were these cowls. But, unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of all 3 of them before they were mailed away. Oops! Luckily, now that the holidays are coming to an end, I am making one for myself (yup, that's the knitting in my photo), so I will have one to show you eventually.

I also finished up a dress for Phoebe, just a couple of nights ago. I have yet to give it to her, but I will get a picture posted in the next week or so.

I'm reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. I am a couple hundred pages in and am really enjoying it. It's sort of a monster of a book, but I was captivated from the get-go.

What are you reading? What are you knitting?

Wishing you all a lovely last day of 2014!!!
Pin It Now!


  1. I have yet to pick up the Goldfinch, I want to, but haven't yet. Maybe soon. Can't wait to hear what you think about it.

  2. Lovely picture, your cowl yarn looks like a nice color. I read a review of the goldfinch only a few days ago and have since added it to my wish list.
    Enjoy your new years eve-ning.
    kindest regards from the alps.

  3. Oh I did that with the taylor shirts I made, 5 of them! Somehow I remembered to photograph some of the knits.

  4. I was given the Goldfinch book for Christmas. I have heard it was really interesting, so I am glad you think it is too! Can't wait to see the cowls! :)

  5. that book is on my to read list, one day!! I didn't get photos of my gifts either :)
