Yarn Along

6:34 PM

It's Wednesday again and that means it is time for the weekly yarn along. I am joining with Ginny and others to share yarn and books. It's been a few weeks since I've joined the yarn along. I've been working on the Dr. Who scarf in a feverish attempt to finish by mid June. I haven't wanted to bore you with the same project for weeks in a row. 


Yesterday I was in Portland, Oregon (one of my favorite cities). There is a crafting thrift store called Knittn Kitten. (I'd make it a link, but I'm on the blogger app on my ipad and I haven't figured that one out yet). Anyhoo, google it you're at all interested. They everything crafty...yarn, needles, hooks, fabric, ribbon, vintage, etc.  I needed to buy long #10 needles for my sweater. I also bought 36" size 0 & 1. A month or so ago a lady on the airplane showed me how to the magic loop with socks. So I thought if I had the small size needles I might be more willing to give socks another go. I also bought some random leftover balls of yarn. I will use them on a scrap blanket. 




I just finished reading Leap of Faith by Queen Noor. Excellent book. She talks about her upbringing and how she came to meet King Hussein of Jordan. I hate to admit that I am not quite up to speed on Middle East history so for me it was quite informative. The one thing I wish the book had was a map of the region and of Jordan so I could refer to it when she mentioned certain places. 

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday.

  1. Sounds like an awesome book Jennifer. So you were in Portland? Another one of my blogging friends loves Portland as well. They want to live there. I really need to visit Portland someday!

  3. I love Portland- but only visit rarely since we are several hours away! I should bookmark that shop to check out next time we visit!
    Magic loop is my favorite way to knit small objects in the round! I can't remember the last time I pulled out DPNs

  4. Nice combination of colors for your scrap blanket. I am going to actually make one for my new niece - her room has so many colors in it I figured it would make a great gift and a good stash buster! Looks like you have a real fun craft store!

  6. Yay another scrap blanket planner :) you cannot hyper link with the blogger app. However if you go to blogger on safari you can. I upload the photo on the app, write, then hyperlink on safari. I prefer the laptop the best!!!!
