Yarn Along 2012

12:03 PM

It's the first yarn along of the New Year! And also some first's in the knitting technique area for me this week! I am knitting myself a sweater for the first time! Yeah for me!!! I decided to do the shalom cardigan...so lovely and (also it looked easy!! hehe!!) It is coming along rather quickly and I'm using knitpicks city tweed....(ravelry notes here).....

I also cast on for Hannah Grace's Birthday sweater.....I can't believe she will be one in 2 months! I wanted something pretty and sweet and I searched ravelry for hours and finally decided on the Ramona Ruth sweater. I love the lace work and the pretty neckline! I am hoping the size comes out alright as the original pattern is for a new baby and uses sock yarn..I am using cascades superwash 220 which is a sport weight yarn and so far it looks like it might be just a little big......but big is better then too small! This pattern has a chart for the lace work and I have never used a chart before so I am learning it as I go and I think I like it!

As for reading...I started a new 2 year reading plan for the Bible and my bedside table is piled high with books on my to read list.......but when it comes down to it I'd rather knit then read when I can catch a minute and so not much reading is getting done!! Maybe I too should look into getting some audio books on my iphone......hmmmmm!

Jump over to Ginny's and get ready to be inspired! So many great projects from such talented ladies!! I love Weds. and the Yarn Along!!!!

  1. Beautiful work! I would love to knit a sweater for me, it seems so overwhelming compared to knitting one for a little one. It's on my list though.

  2. The sweaters are lovely! I love the colour of your shalom... good work!

  3. Both sweaters are lovely! Great colors!

  4. I've got plans for my first sweater for myself this year too. Your sweater looks great! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment!
