Yarn Along

6:00 AM

Once again, joining in the weekly Yarn Along.  It's all about books and knitting.  Two of my favorite things.  What are we reading this week?

The Maggie B was one of my favorite books growing up.  It was very hard to find, so I ordered it on Amazon for Corrine.  We got it last week and have read it a couple of times.  I've only just started the book about Elmo.  I look forward to reading it since we are watching a lot of Sesame Street.

What am I knitting?  I finally got around to buying a longer set of circular needles to finish the Radiating Star Blanket.  Each row is taking longer to knit, so I'm guessing it will take a couple of weeks to finish.  But I've started another blanket that will be log cabin kind of blanket.  I'm not sure if it really has a name, but it will use up a lot of the stash in my stash box!  And I really like the randomness of the colors.  Basically I'm using yarn by how much I need for each stripe.  The Radiating Star Blanket is too big to fit in my suitcase, so I had to start another project.  Soon that blanket will be too big as well and I'll need to start something else!
Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

    I love that you are using your stash to knit a blanket and really should do the same here.
    Have a lovely yarn along day.

  2. I love projects that use up stash yarn! Can't wait to see what the blanket looks like all done up. I haven't read that book you ordered from amazon....looks cute!

  3. My little one LOVES Elmo. I'll have to check the book out she'd be thrilled. I've got tons of stash yarn that I know will never be anything. I like the idea of a stash blanket. I'll have to start that one of these days!

  4. I've almost finished my stash busting blanket. Now I need to buy to finish the border. Oh well, 'least I made a dent in my stash. I'm looking forward to seeing how your log cabin blanket grows.
