Yarn Along

Hello! Joining with Ginny at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along. I'm getting a bit of a late start today, but oh well. Life has been a bit hectic (mostly the fun kind) lately, and I just can't seem to get into a routine. Sigh.

OK, I am now really almost done with Phoebe's jumper, I will have it finished before yarn along next week (that is a promise to myself more than anything). I am also knitting up another plain vest for Phoebe. I have knit so many of these and they go quick. The yellow seemed appropriate as it has been quite dreary here, and I thought she could use a bright pop of color in her wardrobe. Her birthday is just over a month away, so I am trying to whip a few things up for her for gifts.

I just started reading Harper Lee's Go Set A Watchman. It was a splurge grab at the library. Even though I have a stack of books 10-high in my to-read pile on my nightstand, somehow I let this one push its way in. It seems like it will be a fast easy read, but so far I am unsure as to how much I actually like it.

What are you reading? What are you knitting?
Pin It Now!


  1. Oh wow, that yellow is so happy looking. I think I need to get me some yellow yarn :)

  2. I love patterns that I know and work up quickly, kind of instant gratification!

    I haven't read that book, not sure I ever will.

  3. very happy yellow :) We have that book but still havent read it...mixed emotions about it. Have a good week!

  4. Oh I agree! January is so hard to get into the swing of things, I just feel the need to hibernate!

  5. What a bright and cheerful shade of yellow!! Beautiful!

  6. I have wanted to read that book, but haven't yet. You will have to let me know what you think. I loved To Kill a Mockingbird - have heard both good and bad about Go Set a Watchman. Would love to hear your thoughts. Have a great week!
