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.  It has been a busy couple of weeks for me and my knitting projects have taken a back burner to life!

This past Sunday I finished up the left front of the purple sweater (the one that I ripped out a couple of weeks ago) and was very excited that I was close to the making up, but then realized that I still had to knit the sleeves... Ugh.  The deadline for turning in handmade items for the silent auction is Saturday.  I have let the coordinator know that while I will not make that deadline, I am close to finishing.

I got some money for Christmas.  I bought yarn.  The blue, white, red and yellow yarn will be Colorado hats.  Bryan wants one and I may make one for myself.  I will probably also make one for my brother.  I've got two patterns- one is a knit pattern and the other is a crochet pattern.  I like both of them and may do both.

And look at this gorgeous yarn!  This was a total splurge from Fancy Tiger here in Denver.  It is from the Meow Collection from Ancient Arts Fiber Collection.  The color is Calico!  I bought the fingering weight yarn and I plan on turning it into socks!  (Shocking I know).  
 I have not started it yet, but this is my new book.  Stephen White is a local Boulder author.  His main character is psychologist Alan Gregory.  This is actually the last book of the Alan Gregory series.  I really like this series since it takes place in my home town.  I love knowing exactly where the landmarks are!
Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

  1. I love reading books that are set in places that you know. We have three local WI authors that I love for that reason: Jerry Apps, Jess Riley, and Michael Perry.

  3. Very pretty Christmas yarn for hats, but that Calico yarn is just divine and will make beautiful socks.
    How thrilling to have met Robert [or Bob as his friends call him ;)] I have been a fan forever!

  7. I also really enjoy reading books that have a familiar sense of place. As a Canadian, and fan of the Eastern Townships in Quebec, I love reading Louise Penny. :-)
