Yarn Along

Hello! Happy Wednesday! Joining with Ginny at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along.

I am super excited because I have a fun weekend adventure planned. Hopefully, I will have lots of pictures to share next week!

Still working on Phoebe's in-threes sweater. I am in the easy, mindless part, so it is a perfect knit for watching movies and catching up on Downton Abbey! I know that Phoebe will love this sweater. She is just in love with the color red these days-- she can't get enough. Personally, this particular shade of red reminds me of Christmas, but to each their own!

War and Peace had to go back to the library. AGAIN. So the past couple of days I have been reading through The Secret Lives of Trees. It is also due back at the library very soon, but I am really enjoying it. It's not a book that you can really plow through though-- it has lots of information packed in, so it is a bit slow going (but good!). Once I get back to an easy mindless read, my brain will thank me!

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


  1. yay for an exciting weekend! can't wait to see your photos :)

  2. Glad to hear you had a nice weekend. My current read is going slower than I hoped too. I like red, but don't often wear it. That sweater will be cute!

  3. I love the red and will look fabulous on a little one.

  4. I've been wanting to read but instead find myself watching Hell on Wheels every night on Netflix. I'm almost through every episode lol. I'm not much of a tv watcher but I'm hooked.
