This blog is for a Yarn Along started by another really cute blog called Small Things. Every Wednesday we are to post/blog/Instagram our knitting project du jour and what we are reading! Sounds so fun.
Then a couple of years ago I visit a good friend back East who is an expert at knitting and I watched her do The Lucy Hat in a day. Ravelry-Lucy Hat.
And I remember how much I loved knitting in college, so I started again, and I took off. This was it! I just found I loved the rhythm of creating something by knitting and then reading. My books lasted longer too- which was kind of nice. I didn't rush through books I loved and I got something accomplished in the meantime. I have found the more I love the item I'm knitting- the less I get reading done. At the end of the day I'd stare down and realized I had read maybe a handful of pages,
My current knitting project is Wool & The Gang's Fearless Cardigan Ravelry-Fearless Cardigan. Check out my previous blog- Lovelyyarnescapes- The Sumptuous Sexy Fearless Cardigan.
I'm also working on a prayer shawl for myself out of Lion's Homespun. Ravelry- The Original Prayer Shawl. I hope to get some Lion's Homespun in Blue Chunky this weekend to start a prayer shawl for my Mom- she's in a home for Alzheimer's and turning 80 this month. She loves the color blue and it should be comforting.
