Yarn Along – 3/25/15

March 25, 2015

Laura’s Blog Entry

The yarn is depleting and the sock is growing! I had a good bit of time for car knitting last week and I took advantage. I am past the waste yarn for the afterthought heel and I’m going to knit until I run out of yarn. I love a good knee sock. The colors are pretty, but I have to resist the urge to pull it all out and alternate skeins of yarn to avoid the pooling. I am not a huge fan of pooling, and this yarn, over 56 stitches for a sock does pool. Life will go on. But I do wonder how the heel will turn out. Could be interesting!

The yarn is Knitpicks Hawthorn Fingering weight in color Vancouver. The pattern is just a basic, toe up, afterthought heel sock in a three/one rib.

My book this week is the audiobook for P.G. Wodehouse’s The Code of the Woosters: Jeeves to the Rescue.
I love all things British, so when this was the March selection for my book club I knew it would be enjoyable. Few authors can cram so many words and so much humor into a single sentence as Wodehouse. It’s jolly good fun!

Joining Ginny today in her Yarn Along. It’s a great place to find new things to knit and to read!

    Do you know who narrates the Jeeves? :O I would love to listen to that. I think this is also the first time I’ve seen the Knitpicks Hawthorne in use. It’s really quite beauitful. 🙂

      Yes! I should have said that in the post. It can be very important! The reader is Jonathan Cecil. He sounds quite a bit like Hugh Laurie, who played Bertie Wooster in the TV version. He does tons of different voices for all the characters. It is well performed.

        Oh that’s fantastic! I was hoping it was Stephen Fry. ;p

    The socks are so pretty! I also love PG Wodehouse ever since I went to a one man show in high school. I think part of what made me fall in love with Bertie and Jeeves was the fun of watching 1 man play all the parts!!
