Yarn Along – I am a happy Shawl-aholic

On Wednesday’s knitters come to Ginny’s and Tami’s and share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from.  they also tell what they are reading and  a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts.  I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

Shelby’s Mochi Plus ruffled  shawl starts with the ruffle, I have about 30 more short row repeats before I can start on the body (more short rows).

Hope’s Alpaca Sox shawl is working up nicely. A little pink for my taste, hopefully she will think it is wonderful, especially since Grandpa Red bought the yarn.

Babetta’s Yarn and Gifts, my favorite local yarn shop, had a sale.
I had had my eye on this pattern and Babetta had yarn.

Here is the beginnings of Sothia, in plum and composition black grey.

I’m listening to Flash and Bones by Kathy Reichs – I like her stories, but the language is annoying.

  1. I really am struck by the first shawl, that will certainly be a stunner when it is finished! Is there anything better than a yarn store sale? I doubt it.

  2. I like the striped shawl….beautiful yarn …I haven’t read a Reichs book in quite a long time…I got bored with them

  3. Shawl-aholic, indeed! Impressive work you have here! These are all going to be magnificent!

    • Thank you, ma’am.
