Yarn Along


The honey cowl is coming along and I am really enjoying the pattern, easy and fun. Leading up to the holidays I was busy knitting smaller, kid size projects, I kinda forgot what it is like to knit a larger project, no instant gratification on this one.

The plan is to keep working away on this, and also cast on another pair of fingerless mitts, a quicker project, just to keep things interesting.

I am back to doula reading most of the time right now, but I did take a study break to read this lovely new magazine over the weekend. It is amazing and filled with so much goodness.

What are you knitting and reading?

Joining in with Ginny and Nicole

P.S. Still time to enter this lovely giveaway.

  8. I try to switch between quick projects and longer ones - I find if I have too much going at once I get nothing done, as if I can't choose which to work on! But have some accomplishment is necessary too. Looking forward to watching them come along :)

  11. Aha, I had to look up Cowl on the internet to know what your project is supposed to result in!
    Now I know what it is and I think it will be beautiful!
