Yarn Along

5:30 AM

It's Wednesday and that means it time for the weekly Yarn Along.  I'm joining with Ginny and others for the weekly update of yarn and books.  Two of my favorite things, but I'm not sure I got much knitting or reading done this week.

I got a row and a half done on The Summit.  There are 12 repeats of each the left and right sides.  I have finished seven on each side.  I'm plugging away, but now I'll post pictures when I've finished it.  I joined a square swap on Ravelry.  The premise is there are 13 members who once a month knit a square for that months member and that person gets 12 12x12 squares.  I thought it would be a nice way to get some squares to put together for a blanket for Project Linus.  And I thought it a nice way to use up some of my stash yarn!  If you've got any suggestions for a pattern to use for a 12x12 I'm all ears!  I've got a couple of new stitches that I'd like to try out and this could be a good way to experiment.  Plus it is small enough to fit in my suitcase!  Or there is still room to join the second group if you're at all interested.

Last week I was reading a book I just couldn't get into.  I tried for two days to read it and it just didn't hold my attention.  Luckily we have a bookshelf in the lounge at work, so I traded.  I just noticed that it is an ice theme.  I'm reading Ice Trap.  It's a psychological thriller that takes place in the Northwest Territories of Canada up by the Arctic Circle.  I've only read one chapter of Ice Storm so far so the jury is still out on that one.

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

  3. The ice/winter theme is definitely a funny coincidence! The square swap sounds like a lot of fun, please share your progress, I'd love to see it!
