Yarn Along – 12/23/15

December 23, 2015

Well I made it through.

Advent Scarf 2015 knit along is done! Pattern by Lila Agnew. Yarn is Quince and Co. Sparrow in 218 Venice.

I quickly gave it a soak and started blocking it so I can wear it over the Christmas holiday. In my haste I blocked it face down, but it still looks pretty good!

This was a good challenge. It was a struggle through at least the first half. Then either the patterns got easier or my lace mojo kicked in. I stopped making errors and having to reknit rows after row. The last few days really flew!

I especially liked working so many different lace patterns. I want to play around with a lace design in the new year and this gives me a good starting point.

Book wise, I did start the audiobook, Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell. I REALLY was enjoying it. Unfortunately I could not finish before my digital checkout at the library expired, so I am on the list for it again so I can finish.

If you enjoy quirky characters with fandom obsessions and anxiety issues, you might like it, too. I have a teen nearly ready for college, so the setting in the first year of college fit well for me, too.

A fun aspect is that there is a story within the story: a magic-themed book series that the main character loves and writes fan fiction for. You get to hear excerpts from the story – within the story. Cool.

Hope you are having a nice holiday and get a little bit of a break from the rat race. We are planning some time off and some serious relaxation.

Merry Christmas to everyone!
