Yarn Along – 7/26/16

July 27, 2016

 

It’s a sweater!

Still needs to be blocked and a closure constructed, but the knitting is done!

Pattern: Weekend Retreat Cardi from Lion Brand Yarns. Yarn: Cascade Avalon, 50% cotton, 50% acrylic, in color 35. A quick knit in a cropped style.

Reading: Just finished The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith, AKA J.K. Rowling. I enjoyed this mystery story. I was engaged by the detective Cormoran Strike and look forward to seeing where his story goes, along with that of his assistant/secretary. Definitely a lighter read than The Casual Vacancy. And has more likable characters.

Next up I plan to start on the Void shawl in my very own handspun! See you next week!

    Lovely colour cardie, it’s great.
    I really liked both the Strike books, can’t wait for the next.

      Thank you! So glad to hear you liked the second book. I’ll be searching out a library copy very soon!
