Knitting This Week

6:00 AM

It is Wednesday again and that means it is time for the weekly yarn along.  I am joining with Ginny and everyone to share yarn and books.   Do you remember the last time I posted with the yarn along? I was going to use some yarn that I got from a friend who was cleaning out her stash.  Well, that was two weeks ago and here is the hat.  You cant' see the eyelet pattern for all of the crazy striping of this hat.  But I love the striping!

This wasn't the intended pattern.  I actually started two other hats and ripped them out because I didn't like the way they were progressing.  Then I decided I was going to make a sweater for one of the school fundraisers.  I didn't like that one either.  So I went back to hats.  With the other skein of yarn I am going to make an Aviatrix for the school fundraiser.  One of these days I'll finish my socks and work on my Hitofude.  So many projects going right now and it's driving me nuts!

I have about 50 pages left of The Fifth Woman.  While we know whodoneit I don't the details yet.  Definitely going to drag it out until the last possible page! A friend of mine just gave me a stack of books by William Kent Krueger.  He writes suspense books that take place in Northern Minnesota.  My friends mom lives on the Boundary Waters in Minnesota.  I have read a couple of his books but not from the beginning so I'm pretty excited to start them.

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

  1. I like the striping of your hat too Jen, it's very pretty.
    I have way too many projects on the needles too and the sad part is I am dying to cast on something else!

  2. It's always fun to read about a place that you are somehow connected to. I enjoy books by Michael Perry because he writes about small town Wisconsin life.

  3. Nice hat! Reminds me of mountain ranges :)

  4. I just LOVE the pooling in that hat. So awesome! At least with so many projects on the needles you can knit on whatever suits your mood at the time.

  5. ordinarily pooling just drives me crazy.....but I LOVE how it worked out on this hat!!!!! (my theory is....rather be lucky than good, although you were obviously both on this one!)

  6. I find hats so satisfying and fast. Love your hat and the yarn design that happened is nice :)


I love your comments. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
