Yarn Along


Reading: I'm still reading Thomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd. I'm glad to say that I'm still enjoying it just as much as I was last week! There has been a lot of drama and while I was sucked into the story from the start, I'm especially curious to see how things will turn out now. I should finish it within the next day or so, and then I'll watch the new adaptation as soon as possible. :)

Knitting: Since I usually find myself knitting heavy sweaters during the summer, I just cast on a new one, hoping that I'll actually be able to wear it this winter. It's In Stillness, a basic pullover with a bit of texture near the neckline. Even though I went down a needle size, my gauge is still loose so I'm hoping that knitting a smaller size will result in this sweater not being huge. (That was a problem I had with the sweater I previously knit in the round.)

  1. That sweater looks very pretty and I love the color you have chosen. Hopefully it won't be too big.

    1. Thank you! I hope it won't be too big, either. For some reason, my gauge with sweaters knitted in the round is really weird.
