Yarn Along – 7/2/14
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.
