Yarn Along--Looking for spring
Joining Ginny for her Yarn Along again this week and am hoping I will have time to stop in and see what everyone is knitting, although it may take me the rest of the week!
The above is some of what I received in the mail last week. I didn't photograph the dark merino I purchased for a boy's pullover for next fall. It didn't fit with all my spring colors.
Tiny Tea Leaves, which I am knitting for fall (if it won't be too small by then--I am famous for too-small-knits) and put it aside to jump into my new stash. I am using the Noro Silk Garden to knit a spring shawl. I've never knit a shawl or knit with Noro, and I think I am hooked on both. No wonder everyone raves--the Noro is really quite delightful to knit with, and is interesting enough to keep the somewhat monotonous shawl pattern I'm using (this one--a real beginner's pattern) from being dull to knit.
I am still working through Frank Sheed's Theology and Sanity (I will be reading it through Lent, I take it, as I tend to doze off after a couple of pages. It is not dull--I'm just old and tired!), and reading The Bronze Bow to the kids.
I'll be by later to see what's on your needles!
