Yarn Along – 5/6/15

May 5, 2015

Laura’s Blog Entry

75% done! 75% done! This lace shawl is progressing. When I get to this point in a project I get a little burst of finishing energy. Let’s see if I can finish by next week…

Pattern is the Aise shawl. Yarn is Knit Picks Shadow laceweight in color Midnight Heather.

I am currently listening to my book club selection for May, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, by Rob Lowe. I am at the end of disk two and it is a great listen. He has had a very interesting life, crossing paths with many surprising people in his childhood.

I also relate to it because I spent a year living in Dayton, Ohio in the 1070s and grew up not far away most of my school-age years.

Most interesting so far is his perspective on himself – as not fitting in. Rob Lowe. St. Elmo’s Fire. Hello.

Not recommended for listening around small children, but a definite recommend! Perfect for summer.

Joining Ginny and her friendly community today for the Yarn Along.

    I wanted to get that book when it first came out. Imagine – him not fitting in? It’s so funny how we see ourselves as opposed to how others see us.

    Great color! I haven’t tried Knit Picks yet – I’m always scared about ordering colors on line. Yours is excellent though. Love the Rob Lowe cable commercials (although I’ve seen them all one too many times), and I saw St. Elmo’s Fire when it came out – I guess he was odd man out, maybe.

      I have been very happy with their yarns. I do a lot of searching of projects on Ravelry to get a better sense of what colors look like in a finished product. I have found Knit Picks online photos to be very true to color. And you can’t beat their prices!
