Knitting This Week

6:00 AM

It's Wednesday again and that means it is time for the weekly Yarn Along.  I'm joining with Ginny and everyone to share yarn and books.  This past Saturday two mamas from our crafting group and I went to the Interweave Yarn Show in Loveland.  I had been looking for yarn for the Stitch Block Cowl the KAL we are doing.  I had found some gorgeous yarn that was made with yak but it was priced out of my league.  I had a color scheme in mind and found this Quince and Co yarn which fits exactly what I had in mind.  And it fits my budget.  I have an orange coat and a brown coat that this cowl with go perfectly with!  The brown one is called Bark, the white is Egret, and the orange is Nasturtium.  I love those color names!  
I am still reading The Cirque by Martin Van Pelt.  I am really enjoying his book.  Martin was a pilot I flew with many times before he retired.  The prologue of the book starts in 2032 after the funeral of one of the main characters.  Then the books goes back to 1984.  The book follows the two main characters, Rodney and Jaime who have been friends forever.  The paths parted for a number of years, but they are getting together for a week long backpacking trip to the Colorado high country.  In the other storyline is the group of drug smugglers who are bringing cocaine to a ranch in the mountains.  And that's about where I am in the story.

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!
