Fair-isle just started
Get Ready To Choose Your Own Adventure by WEBS that started this month (not too late to join in). It's an adventure because you choose your brim and what stitch to knit, or if you want colorwork in it. I've done hats before, but I wanted to learn fair isle and slowly I am. I've never done charting before either, so that's new. I'm still not able to hold both yarns in one hand to wrap a stitch, but I'll work on it. I'm pleased with the results so far.
My book is awesome and I'm glad it's the beginning of the series, my only complaint is I returned the book to the library since I was leaving and while I listen to it most times and read it on my tablet, I still like holding a book. I'll have to keep an eye out in second hand shops. I want my 14 yr old to read it and she's sticking her nose up, but if I get it and it lands on her shelf of books with her older sister's lovely selection of books, one never knows, she might change her mind when Mom isn't looking. Teens, if they only knew how predictable they are!
My birthday yarn and book.
Still waiting for my Chroma Fingering Yarn for the Summer 2016 KAL. It was shipped this Monday and yes I am impatient! I think it'll be fun. But I need to catch up to 100 some odd stitches on a graduated triangle shawl shape knit from the side. My post on it was fun! Friday Fantasy Knits- Summer 2016 KAL Shawl in Sherbet Colors.
In between knits I'm trying to work on my socks- Tuesday's Eclectic Thoughts- A Sock Knitalong. Slowly they will get done. It's so pretty!
Please come share in Wednesday's Yarn Along the book that you are reading and what you are knitting on with a picture and link to your blog at "Small Things".
