Yarn Along – 7/2/14

July 2, 2014

Laura’s Blog Entry

New book and a new knitting project this week! And once again, matching is important!

The book is Marie Bostwick’s Between Heaven and Texas (Cobble Court Quilts). I have enjoyed her Cobbled Court quilting series of novels. Just a light summer read. This book shifts the focus from the usual characters to the life and history of a previously side character. I am a few chapters in and I am enjoying it. Sometimes you just need a book that you can fly through!

As soon as the Duckies –  Pretty in Pink socks were done, I had this new pattern cast on. It’s the Java Socks by Cailyn Meyer from Knitty.com. It’s gonna be a challenge, folks. Teeny, tiny cables. All over the sock. So far so good. It’s great knitting to do while watching Turner Classic Movies. Not for during BBC America’s “Orphan Black.” I’d miss too much and man, does that show have its twists and turns! Love it.

Anyway, the yarn is yet another shade of Malabrigo sock, color 809 Solis. Digging the semi-solid color shifting. We’ll see how fast these go. Could take a while.

    i made JAVA!! One of my favorite patterns, although you are right, they took a bit longer than some others. (Of course, I made them for hubby’s big feet!!!) You will LOVE the finished product.

      Oh I am so glad to hear it! I will keep on keepin’ on. I love how the cables run on the gusset. Irresistible!

    Such pretty yarn! And I agree – you do need a quick read on occasion. That just seems to be where my head is at these days.

    That book series sounds quite interesting. I have put it in my wish list. I love the yarn you are using.
