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!   I spent some time trying to figure out the next step in Hitofude.  The problem I was having is that when I learned to knit a gazillion years ago I never really learned to read pattern.  I am more of a visual person and combine pictures with what the pattern reads.  There was no picture of this step in the sweater and I had a hard time trying to figure out what the pattern was telling me to do.  Several people told me to just have faith and I did.  So far it is looking good!

I just finished The Violets of March.  I really liked it!  Fabulous book.  Emily travels from NYC to Bainbridge Island after her divorce is final.  She plans on spending a month with her elderly aunt.  She finds a diary from 1943 in her nightstand but doesn't know who wrote it.  So she starts "investigating."  This book is a good mix of history and romance and mystery.
Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

  1. You and my husband are a lot alike, he is a very visual person too. Me? I read every single word of the pattern/instructions before I begin.
    I have had The violets of March on my list for awhile, it just went to being the next book I read, thank you.

  2. I have this book on my list too, so good to hear it is fabulous. Your knitting looks gorgeous so far!

  4. Your sweater is amazing! Perhaps you don't need as much visual as you think? It looks fabulous! Your book sounds interesting too. Will have to add it to my Goodreads list:) Post up pics of your sweater done, great color choice.

  5. love your hitofude!!!!! I know what you mean about trusting the pattern :) I liked that book as well.

  6. My mom loved that book and loves that author - and I LOVE Bainbridge Island so I really should probably look into that book, with so much to recommend it to me! I really want to knit a Hitofude but haven't had the money for the quantity of yarn it calls for - or the time! But yours is looking lovely!

  7. I really loved that book too. Have you read The Baker's Daughter? I think you would enjoy that one as well.

    1. The Bakers Daughter sounds familiar. I think I did read that one.

  8. Your hitofude looks gorgeous so far, a lovely colour.


I love your comments. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
