Yarn Along...Hello!

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs.  I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?

Yes, it has been a
 week since I wrote in this space. Everytime I sat down to put words here I just sighed.  A dry spell I suppose?   But, the weather has warmed up here in Texas and the allergies are in full force, plus a migraine caused a blood vessel to burst in my eye and that put me down for a day.  So, here we are.

I am making good progress on the Purl Dreams blanket.  I am just about to end the 3rd skein and it is still a little smaller than I would like or that my neice requested.  So I will add one more skein and then begin the ruffle.  The Whipporwill shawl is making a nice distraction although both are mostly knit and purl.  But the colors are so bright it makes me smile.  Twenty-five more rows and I can begin the CC.

I added a few skeins today to my stash.  As luck would have it, my Chiropractor's office is 5 minutes from Mad Tosh, so I popped over there today.  Yes I came out with a lovely skein of Tosh Sock.  :))  And then at knitting social this afternoon I had to find a home for 2 skeins of Crock O Dye.  The blue was just too pretty to leave it on the shelf.

It was mentioned on one of the blog's last week about  Mrs. Lincoln's Rival.  I had read the prior book, Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker.  It was difficult to finish so I didn't think I should give this one a try.  But, there it was on the library shelf and it hopped into my hands. ( lots of things hopping into my hands these days!)  So far I am ok. It is moving faster than I thought, but she spends a lot of time on the details.  Will see how it goes.

Joining Ginny for another week of lovelies!


  1. Beautiful looking projects and I love all of the yarns!

  2. If I lived anywhere near Mad Tosh I would be in big trouble! I just love their yarn! Your Whipporwill is looking lovely :-)

    1. Yes! It is an act of sacrifice not to be in there all the time!

  3. These knits are so beautiful! And the photographs with green grass makes me jealous, all I can see is white right now.
