Back again for Ginny's weekly Yarn Along, although I considered bowing out this week to spare everyone more photos of the same old projects.
I have discovered, in doing this shawl, that the trouble with this pattern is that it widens and lengthens by four stitches every other row. At some point, the rows become incredibly long. Why did I not see this coming? In any case, finishing it is now a matter of dogged determination, and I have decided that it will, in fact, be much larger than the child's shawl it is meant to be, and have ordered two more balls of the Noro Silk Garden. And for my next shawl, I shall seek a pattern that begins with a million stitches and decreases along the way!
I was happy to pick up the Tiny Tea Leaves again before bed last night. I am on the sleeves, and at least that moves quickly! I think I need to start perusing Etsy for some nice buttons.
Still slogging through Frank Sheed's Theology and Sanity. Difficult when I have to decide whether to read or knit in my bit of free time before bed. And usually either one causes my eyes to get heavy within a short time. I'm no spring chicken, you know! And we still haven't finished The Bronze Bow, either. But I have this beautiful book from the library I want to find for our collection at home: Tasha Tudor's The Springs of Joy. It is a book of her lovely illustrations with fragments of prose and poetry relating to joy. I just love it!
Now I will spend the next three days visiting all the participants of Yarn Along--so fun to see what everyone is making and reading!
