Yarn Along











That Spider Lily is the last vestige of the garden.  The heat has done its damage and it will be time soon to put the garden to bed.  First though, Mr. Golfer and I are making a trip far north to Montana to see Caitlin.  May was our last visit before she moved. I am ready for a respite from the heat, but the weather reports say we may be driving into some frozen mix.  An adventure for sure.  We will also be traveling over to Idaho for a wedding before turning home.  Pray for safe travels?

I have made some progress on the Garden Cardigan.  The waist shaping is complete and now onto length before beginning the sleeves.  Mad Tosh is always a joy to knit with.  I am hoping there will be much progress in the car, but I am taking two other projects along as well.

The Jan Karon book has not disappointed.  In fact, I can't put it down.  I was hoping this would be my vacation book, but I think I will finish it before we leave.

Isn't that dance fabric sweet?  I just had to post a pic of this sweet bag.  I have about  2 1/2 yards of this left.  If you have any dancers in your life, this would make a great Christmas gift!

As always....joining with Ginny!

  8. Beautiful yarn! It look like the perfect yarn for that pattern. And I must admit I am jealous that you have a copy of Jan Karon's new book. Can't wait to read that one! :)
