Yarn Along....

6:59 AM




Joining Ginny over at Small Things for the weekly yarn along. My needles were flying this week and I have finished my Pebble Beach Shawlette.This shawl was a dream to knit and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a light and airy shawl that has an easy to memorize pattern but is interesting enough to keep you going. And did I mention it is a fast knit!!








I used Sunrise Fiber Co. classic sock in a beautiful gradient set of mini skeins in the colorway Escape. It is an indie dyer shop on etsy and I am finding myself heading to etsy more and  more to find amazing yarns in these indie dyer shops. I also found a neat little blog that searches out those little shops and let's you know about them and the treasures you will find there. It's called Indie Untangled and I am really enjoying finding new little shops to explore. Check it out!

I also cast on for a pair of Simple SKYP socks. Toe up and 2 at a time and I just turned the heels so they are going fast. I think I am a big fan of toe up 2 at a time it just seems to be working for me!

I actually do have reading to share this week! I had to see what all the hype was about  with everyone chatting it up and having KAL's all about The Outlander Series. So I decided to download it on Audible and it has been my knitting reading or should I say listening all week. I really want to get the first book done before I see the first show. I'm about half way through and am really enjoying it. I can not remember the last time I read a book just for pleasure. I'm usually reading something for homeschooling or parenting or Christianity. I think part of the reason I am enjoying it so much is the narrator is English and she is wonderful to listen too! It's a great book especially if you love historical fiction.

It is a rainy day here today and so I am going to grab my tea and my knitting and while the kids play board games I will set off around the yarn along links to see what everyone else is up to. Happy knitting!

  9. The shawl looks lovely! I found some yarn in my stash and am going to cast mine on as soon as I finish the one on my needles. I am listening to Outlander too and want to finish the first book before watching the show.

  14. Gorgeous shawl!! The gradients are so pretty. I read the first two outlander books but trickled off and always meant to pick them back up. I just heard they are doing a show the other day so I will probably need to reread them at this point!
