Yarn Along Updates

Joining Ginny’s Yarn Along again this week.  Have some updates on the knitting front.

I knitted up another two smitten mittens this week.  I now have one in each of the colors I’m using.  I love love love jewel tones at the holidays and hope these little mitts will add a nice touch.  My daughter even thinks they are “so cute!”  High praise indeed!  It takes about one evening for me to make each sock.  You know, I was watching a You Tube video recently  (think it was about entrelac) and there are some  FAST knitters out there.  Unbelievable.   I think I’m still pretty slow.  Relatively speaking.

Anna’s blanket is another story all together and probably deserves a post of its own one of these days.

Dove into my WIPs last night and did some work on my Effortless Cardigan.  There is SOO much left to do.  I knit about 10 rows last night which doesn’t seem like much, but really is.  It hasn’t changed much since I last posted a picture of it, but here it is anyway!

As for reading, I finished East of Eden on vacation and loved it.  I had my doubts about whether it would make good beach reading.  But really, for a beach read, you couldn’t ask for more.  Wonderful book.

Started reading “Girl Gone” the other night.  So far, so good.  It’s been a pretty fast read so far.

Til next time!!
