Yarn Along January 9 2013

yarnalong_gsheller_grayIt's Wednesday again, time for Yarn Along with Ginny of Small Things when crafters all over share their projects and what they're reading. I've been yarning along for a while now and it's how I've found a lot of great craft bloggers.

I'm utterly pleased with the Shakespeare Cardigan. The 1x1 rib has been just fine, almost 6 inches of fine. I only have 3 inches left before I move onto the honeycomb pattern. Keep your fingers crossed for that. There's still inches and inches of 1x1 rib after the honeycomb pattern is finished. It's a good thing that I don't mind it.

This pattern suits the tweed so much better. the rib draws in the fabric giving it a little extra heft. I know this is a sweater that will last a long while.


I'm still reading Kaffe Fassett's Dreaming in Color, Anthea Paul's girlosophy and Paris Chic by Ines de la Pressange. They're books that keep me centered and focused on making my dreams come true this year.

My children are in day care two days a week, so it means that I can get a little time to myself to do some writing and attempt to keep the house clean. The peace and quiet in the house are soothing even if I'm trying to get a lot of work done.

How's your knitting? Have any big dreams for the new year?

I enjoy knitting 1x1 ribbing -- it can get very meditative once you're in a groove.

Can't wait to see how this project progresses!

Blogging about knitting since 2004.


What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
