Yarn Along


Reading: Here to Stay, by Melissa Tagg. I never know exactly what to call this genre, but it's basically a Christian romantic comedy, with a bit of family drama thrown in. It's set during late fall into Christmas time, so now seemed like the perfect time to read it! I'm really enjoying it so far. :)

Knitting: A pair of fingerless gloves for my mom for Christmas. I can mention that here because she knows about them. :) I spun this yarn to use for her gift, because she loves pink and I don't. She also picked out the pattern.

{Yarn Along is a weekly link up hosted by Ginny where you can share what you've been knitting and reading.}

I know I haven't been around the blog much this month, but I haven't had a lot to post about. Since I've been knitting Christmas gifts, I can't share those projects. I do have a few things lined up, but hopefully I'll get back in the swing of things after Christmas. I have some exciting new ideas and plans for the new year, including the possibility of a new Etsy shop! :) Anyway, more on that later.

I spun this yarn from some fiber I bought at the fiber festival last spring. I don't know what kind of wool it was, but it's pretty soft. I spun it as a 2 ply and ended up with approx. 162 yards of worsted weight.

  2. Yay for Etsy. I guess if I knew you were already selling on Etsy, I forgot. My mom and I have talked a long time about starting a shop and haven't gotten around to it. Hopefully in 2015, we'll just forge ahead and try it. :)

    Glad you're liking Melissa's novel. It was a sweetheart of a story.

    1. Yes, I've had a shop on there for about four years, but now that my interests have changed a lot, I'm thinking about heading in a different direction. :)

      I'm loving the book so far!
