Yarn Along




The Christmas knitting is coming along nicely. I finished up the cowl, and am really pleased with it. I love the colours and think it will look great on the person it has been knit for.  I will be casting on another one this weekend.

I have also been working on the Milo this week, and just the other night cast on another scarf.

My reading is still focused on doula reading, but I did manage to finish off Taproot, and it was amazing, yet again. I also picked up another magazine I really like, The Green Parent, from the UK and have read a few articles.

What have you been knitting and reading this week?

Joining in with Ginny and Nicole.

  1. I officially finished about two presents, your Christmas knitting is spurring me to start another so I am not scrambling in December. Lovely knits and I love the fall background :)

  4. Kim, you are simply amazing! All the knits looks so pretty. By the time December arrives you are going to be able to just sit around with your feet up and relax because all your gifts will be ready.;)

  6. Beautiful colours and knitting!

    Once I get the chance, I'll look into getting a copy of Taproot. Oh, another UK magazine that you might like is called Juno (if you haven't already heard of/read it before).

    Happy knitting :)

  10. Hello Kim,
    I saw your comment on my blog today, saying you would like to check out 'The Mother' magazine. I would love to send them to you when I'm finished reading them. Would you like to send your mailing address to my e-mail? (tarynkae21{at}yahoo{dot}com)
    Then I can send them to you when I'm finished. :) I was just wondering who to pass them along to when I was done reading. :)

    Love, Taryn

  13. Beautiful yarn choices. I especially love the last one. I know it's the least colorful, but I love the way the grey and white work together. You're so inspiring. I can't wait to pick up some knitting again when I get the chance. :)

  17. I am always so amazed how much knitting you get done, with everything else. You have a new project almost every week. When do you find the time??? Been reading Taproot as well. Seeing the Everyday is another great magazine you might enjoy.

    1. Can you say late night knitting and car knitting...those are the times when most of my knitting gets done. Seeing the Everyday sounds interesting, I will check it out, thanks!
