Joining the Yarn Along at Ginny's Small Things...what a great blog. You should visit.
Here's what I'm currently reading and working on:
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. You MUST read this. Everyone must read this. I can't explain how incredible this story is. I absolutely loved it...just finished it a couple of days ago, and even stayed up until 1 in the morning reading one night. Now, my husband will tell you there is nothing that can make me stay up that late. But this book did it.
The project is a skirt from Knitting Wrapsody, out of Cascade Ultra Pima. I was making it for a swimsuit cover-up. When I thought I was getting a pale turquoise swimsuit and also that I would enjoy the pattern, I was excited. But Athleta was out of stock in the turquoise, and so I have a royal purple swimsuit. The pattern is also four rows of okay plus one row of major PITA. So I'm kind of meh about it now. I think if I had something I was excited to knit I would be knitting a little more. I'd like to start a navy blue cardigan for P so it will be ready to wear for school.
Here is a picture of one of my completed projects from an earlier Yarn Along:
This is D with her wrap, exactly as I expected her to use it. She likes to wrap up in it while she reads in bed at night. A fun pattern...I am pretty sure I'll make #3 this winter.
Now I have to go see what everyone else is making!
ps: This is not my second downer post that I mentioned yesterday! I am working on it and should have it ready tomorrow.
