Yarn Along – 7/15/15
Hello Yarn-Along-ers and other readers! I am always inspired by all the participants to make some progress on my projects.
This week I am coming down to the end of a travel knitting project that I started on our trip to Boston. Knitting keeps me sane in airports and on planes. I don’t always want to read a book and time flies with a simple project to focus on.
I am knitting on the border of the Yowsa Weigh-It Shawl, designed by Susan B. Anderson. It was designed for the yarn Yowsa, but I changed it up for a lighter weight fingering yarn with amazing colors – Knitpicks Hawthorne in color Vancouver.
Pattern notes can be found on my Ravelry project page.
I am currently listening to Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The Goodreads summary describes it pretty well:
“…A story of love and race centered around a young man and woman from Nigeria who face difficult choices and challenges in the countries they come to call home.”
I am enjoying learning about a different culture. So far it is an engaging story. I am on disk four of fifteen, so I’ll let you know how I feel when I am done.
Kind of excited to finish this knit and cast on its “sister” summer pattern that I have lined up next. Christmas knitting in July feels very relaxed and enjoyable!
