Yarn Along Wednesday

Linking up again to Ginny for Yarn Along.

I am about 7 rows away from finishing the Kudzu Shawl.  I must say I am ready.  Not really enjoying this particular Mad Tosh yarn.  Maybe because I have been knitting with pima cotton in a  sport weight for quite a while.  But, it will be  a good weight for the summer trips, so I just keep knitting on!
Two books on the nightstand.  One, an easy read from the library.  I have read all the Elm Creek Quilter books by Jennifer Chiaverni, so when I saw this on the New Fiction shelf I had to grab it.  So far, so good.  My daughter, Caitlin, knew I would be interested in this non-fiction title and I am just now getting to it.  It is a theme that speaks dearly to me, especially as I see feminism rear its ugly head more and more.  I am devoting a good amount of my reading time to this subject and hope to write a post about it in the near future.

Congrats to Ginny and her family on the announcement of another baby on the way!


  1. That's really pretty. I really like those cables.

  2. That shawl is beautiful, Wanda!!! You'll drag that everywhere this summer!

  3. Very nice! A lot more complicated than what I can do! Look forward to that post you are reading up for!

  4. Love the tiny cables!! So delicate :) You do such lovely work!!

    1. I love that you and another poster thought there were cables here. It is really just a series of decreases in order to shape the leaves! I am not much of a cable knitter. I would like to learn to make them without a cable needle. Do you know how?
