Yarn Along 2

Joining Ginny from Small Things again this week for Yarn Along. A post about knitting and reading.

You know, I was going to cast on a dish cloth this week just so I wouldn't have to post the same sweater again. You would have found me out though. Yes, I am still working on the same sweater. Ready to pick up the stitches on the arm holes and continue on with the sleeves. Modular sweater indeed.  I think it will go quickly from here. At least I hope so as we got a pile of snow today.



The book I am reading is called Secrets of Simplicity by Mary Carlomango. So far I am enjoying it but am barely into it at all. I feel a deep need for simplicity right now. As you may have noticed, by profile simply reads Seeker of Balance. And with thoughts of the holidays ahead beginning to dance around I think this book will be just what I need.



I can't wait to see what you all are knitting and what books are catching your attention.

That sweater looks great! I have not done a sweater yet, but am working on a baby cardigan of cotton, since I'm in Texas =) No snow anywhere here for...probably a long time. I kind of miss it =(

the sweater self-striping is so gorgeous, so pretty!

I think it's fine to post the same thing every week! It's fun to see your progress! Larkspur's Christmas sweater is sure to make a couple more appearances before I actually finish it!

The sweater looks toasty and is coming along beautifully. Picking up stiches for arm holes is my least favorite part of knitting a sweater. I am just not very good at it.

The book looks interesting. I am with you in the need for simplisity at home right now.

Thanks for sharing.

Blessings, Elizabeth

That book looks de-lightful Michelle!

I think anyone making a sweater has the right to flash it around the "yarn along" for a few weeks. It reminds all of us that some projects take longer than others. All good things take time..yours is a good thing!

Both things look lovely! That book sounds like something so many of us seem to be looking for these days. Thanks for sharing the title!
