Wednesdays Yarn Along is a meme hosted by Small Things. She asks us to share a picture of what you are reading and knitting. You can share here and there at Small Things.
I'm currently reading New Leaf: A Mystic Creek Novel by Catherine Anderson and loving it! The main characters are great and engage you- their believable and the plot is just getting going but I like it- saving a damsel in distress and her child, by marrying her. It should be a good read.
Today I'm working on several projects. I'm playing with A Chinese Wave stitch lately and now I've taken the stitch and modified it a bit so it can go on a circular needle. Technique Thursday- Chinese Waves Scarf and Tuesday's Eclectic Thoughts- Designing a Chinese Wave Cowl I want to design a cowl pattern. This stitch is perfect and has a spongy loft to it, especially on very large needles. I'm using Lion's Hometown USA yarn now. Next I'm going to try a larger cowl loop and move into Lion's Thick & Quick yarn to see what result I get.
On my personal front of knitting for me: The Springtime Dishcloth is coming along well (Technique Thursday- Knitting a Dishcloth for Beginners to Advanced Knitters). Also I'm going to start a poncho using 2 skeins of Lion's Homespun yarn that I got from frogging a shawl partially knit years ago. It's in a beautiful variegated green and periwinkle blue hints on a white background and it just looks like spring. This should go up fast a be on my shoulders soon enough for Spring weather.
Have a Happy week knitting and reading.
