Yarn Along





The honey cowl is done! And I love it!

Fingerless mitts have been started and I am beginning to think about what might get cast on next.

Doula reading is in the forefront right now, but I did make time for a little bit of pleasure reading. I finished Use Your Words this weekend and I am looking forward to diving into this in the next few days.

What are you knitting and reading?

Joining in with Ginny and Nicole

  9. I have never been a cowl fan, however, I've seen so many people knitting the honey cowl that now I'm intrigued. This may be my next project.

    And, I hope this isn't too strange to say, but I absolutely adore your hair! Short and cute!

    1. Thank you Amanda.

      I have found some of it helpful, other parts of it, not so much. I mean I am not planning to write a memoir or anything, just looking for a few tips to expand my writing. It made me think, which is a good thing :)
