Yarn Along:Three

Joining Ginny at Small Things and the girls for Yarn Along Three.
 A post about what we are reading
and what we are knitting.

Rather than bore you with the same Tomten Jacket that I have
posted here twice before I bring you...
the dishcloth.

I am using Bernat Handicrafter Cotton.
Naturals. In Guacamole.
At $1.25 for a 42.5g ball I can make 2 dishcloths.
(read tongue in cheek)

And I have just picked up from the library the book
Winter Solstice.
I got the idea from a post on last weeks Yarn Along.
I am going to start it tonight and am quite looking forward to it.

My jacket is coming along slowly but surely.
I am not going to make the sleeves as contoured as the pattern asks
so I have a little bit of figuring to do.
It feels good to hold these small bamboo needles as opposed
to the large metal ones on the sweater.
I haven't quite got used to the "nails on a chalkboard"
type of sound they make as I knit.

  Nice neutral colors.
Feel good cotton.
This is a quick easy project with an
oh so near completion date.
Just what I need.

I love the mix of neutrals in the yarn and I could even probably pull off dishcloths - I am a very new, not so good knitter :0)

Oh, aren't bamboo needles wonderful? Once I made the switch, I've never looked back.
