Yarn Along


Reading: The Princess Bride, by William Goldman. I started reading this book when I was 15! That was right around the time I fell in love with the movie, so naturally I wanted to read the book. But all of the stuff at the beginning bogged me down (I didn't realize what was real and what was made up, and it was too confusing), and even after skipping ahead to the actual story, I eventually gave up. I held onto the book all this time, and ever since I read As You Wish last year (and loved it), I've been wanting to give it another try. (Cary Elwes and all of the others kept raving about how brilliant the book is.) I'm liking it a lot more this time around! :)

Knitting: Besides socks, I'm currently working on a Multnomah shawl. I've been wanting to knit this pattern for about two years now, and it fits into my goal of trying to knit more lace this year. (The border is lacey but right now it's just squishy garter stitch.) This pattern is uncharted and I really want to become more comfortable with reading charts, but I have some other patterns in mind that will help accomplish that!

    1. I've wanted to knit this shawl for a long time, and I've owned this yarn for quite a while, so it feels like a good match! :)
