Yarn Along – This and That

April 16 001Our Rv is to the left of this flower bed, our good neighbor down the path.

On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to 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.

Just two sides of this Granny Square and short enough pink to finish those rounds. Buying one more skein today. Finish the pink, 2 rounds of green and one row of green shells and it is done.

Whippoorwill needs just half a row left to bead and then bind off with a crocheted loop, crochet 2 together, chain 5. . .

With two projects almost done, I couldn’t resist. Another Mystery KAL, Laura Nelkin’s Juego. I have tried to do two of her mysteries. I started Kinetic, but was way beyond my abilities, then when I saw the pictures of finished shawls, I knew it wasn’t my style, so wasn’t very disappointed. The second KAL I was knitting well, but slowly – seeing the pictures knew again it wasn’t my style so didn’t finish it. I’m hoping I like this one.

  1. Thanks for your encouragement on my blog. I am glad I chose people over knitting this week….and at least that button hole is behind me! I think we are neighbors….sort of! I live in Woodland. 🙂

    • HI Neighbor, I think 15 miles is close enough to be neighbors. thanks for visiting here.

  2. Wow! I love the gray and red in your shawl. Such a pretty combination.

    • thanks, I’m liking the way this shawl is coming and the yarn is so soft, it will be like getting a hug every time it’s worn.

  3. Wow, lots of knitting accomplished and such wonderful projects! Happy knitting, ~Lisa 🙂

    • thank you, I enjoy reading your blog and looking at the pretty pictures.

  4. I must learn how to make granny squares! Lovely projects happening here. 🙂

    • I like making large granny squares, not fond at all of ‘sewing’ small ones together. Thanks for visiting

  5. Your granny is gorgeous, those colours look lovely together.
    Nice knitting projects going on there, looking forward to seeing your Whippoorwill finished. Nice colours for the new mystery.

    • thanks for the kind words. Whippoorwill was being blocked Friday by my daughter you can see pictures here,

    • I’m sorry, wrong picture link that is a shawl I made years ago and just asked her to block it – it was the first time she had used blocking wires; usually she just pinned the shawls out. I can’t figure out how to post a picture on this reply. I will put pictures up at Yarn Along
