Yarn Along

Catching up once again with Ginny's Yarn Along!  Hopefully coming to the homestretch on the owl sweater for Anna.  I just have the sleeves to finish and then of course need to put it all together.  I don't know how you other participants seem to have a new big project started and completed each week in the Yarn Along!!  I think I lack knitting stamina LOL  Anyway, I have been quite pleased with how this is turning out and I cant wait to see the finished sweater.  It is my first try at any sort of cables and these ones were surprisingly easy and a super cute effect in my opinion!!

As for reading.  I am finally on the last book of the Narnia series, The Last Battle.  I have enjoyed the series, but I can't say I loved it.  Fantasy just ain't my thang!  I will no doubt be reading it again with my children someday and I will enjoy that, but for now I am glad to be moving on to other reading!!

Check out Ginny's blog, Small Things, to see other Yarn Alongs!  Always something inspiring to be found there!

I want to make the Owl sweater, but haven't found the right yarn just yet! And I definitely can't finish projects weekly. My knitting basket has about 5 projects right now, and I just go back and forth between them all to keep it interesting.

That is adorable, Jamie! Wish I could knit, but it's not instant gratification enough for me. :)
