Yarn Along May 23

yarnalong_gsheller_grayIt's Yarn Along Day again and I'm sharing what I'm knitting and what I'm reading with my yarn along friends. Yarn Along is a fantastic way to find new knitting and craft blogs. Plus, there's a lot of really great engaged bloggers on there. I've been having such a great time meeting these craft bloggers!

I'm still working on the Diminishing Rib Cardigan and while I worked on it consistantly, it doesn't feel like I made much progress, but really I'm only 4 or 5 inches away from having to do the tubular bind off. Heh. I'm supposed to have this cardigan finished by June 1st. Good luck to me and the Red Sox!

The Principles of Knitting is a fascinating read and it's teaching me a lot about my knitting mistakes. I'm learning why certain cast ons are better for ribbing, or for cables. If you're as obsessed with knitting as I am owning this book is imperitive.


Have you checked out The Principles of Knitting? What's your go-to knitting reference? Let me know in the comments!

I must get myself a copy of the POK ... I see that I can download a version on my iPad (how cool is that?). Lovely cardigan.

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.
