Yarn Along – 10/3/18

October 3, 2018

So happy to be back joining in Ginny’s Yarn Along! It’s been too long!

Yarn Along - 10/3/18

I have a new project on the needles. I was craving a light, linen, lacy shawl to work on… so I poured over some stitch dictionaries and came up with a lace pattern I really like!

I settled on Quince and Co. Lark in the color Moon. It is a lovely fingering weight linen that washes up so soft and flowy!

As for reading, I have started a book for a neighborhood faith-based women’s group I have recently joined. Looking forward to building relationships with some new ladies and growing together. Our first book is Girl, Wash Your Face, by Rachel Hollis. It is nonfiction and dives into the lies we believe about ourselves. This topic never gets old for me. Only a few chapters in, but Rachel seems authentic and relatable.

Hope you are enjoying a knitting project, a new book, or both this fall season!

    Although I have usually avoided gray because it washes me out, I do love the look on others. A pretty knit you have going.
    I read that book. And really liked it. I have bought and gifted at least 4 more copies. ENjoy. I’d be interested to hear your final thoughts when you finish.

      I know! Gray is not the best on me, but I do so love it! Good to hear that you liked the book. I am geared up for some real growth ahead!

    Love the color of the yarn and the pattern does look light and lacy, enjoy the book.

    I made a sweater out of Sparrow (that took four years!) and it does have a nice drape. I’m hoping mine gets softer over time, because it is a little crispy yet. (The gray on yours is lovely!)

      It is my dream to make a sweater out of it! Hopefully a few more washings and yours will be perfect!

    The color you chose for your shawl is such a nice gray. I really would like to start a shawl soon too. Hope you enjoy reading Girl, Wash Your Face. I have heard it is really good and am going to be getting a copy soon.

      Thank you! I am liking the book. I think it is aimed at women younger than me, but still seems to contain some good truth nuggets.
