Yarn Along--hurry, hurry, hurry!
I am joining Ginny for her weekly Yarn Along once again. On the reading front, I am still reading what I began last week, which is To Kill a Mockingbird. I am still pretty much near the beginning, as I never seem to read more than a few pages before my eyes begin to close on me. I really love the book, and can't believe that I don't remember much of it at all. Obviously, it didn't strike a cord with me in high school.
With the knitting, I am doing pretty well. I am on the bottom ribbing of Sebastian's Henley. This beautiful yarn knits up quickly and feels and smells wonderful. I love merino. If I can get done with the ribbing today and then do a sleeve a week, I will finish this sweater right on schedule (I am challenging myself to do a sweater per month by the end of November, one for each of the children. I am trying to begin with the larger sizes and hoping to actually get done before my end date so that I can squeeze in a few Christmas hats and scarves as well.
I am looking forward to spending a little time throughout the next couple of days taking a peek at what everyone else is knitting/reading. If you enjoy knitting--or crocheting--and good reads, stop by Ginny's and join it!
