Yarn Along


Reading: I'm still reading All Roads Lead to Austen, by Amy Elizabeth Smith, and enjoying it very much! It's making me want to reread Austen. :)

Knitting: I feel like I'm in between "real" projects right now. I'm working on a pair of socks, but I've also become a little obsessed with knitting on my sock yarn scrap blanket again (after months of not picking it up). It has grown to a decent width by this point, which is very encouraging!

  1. I'm very intrigued by the book. I've never heard of it. I love your sock yarn blanket. I still haven't started one, but I've been collecting minis for when I do. :)

    1. It's very good so far! Collecting minis is half the fun of a scrap blanket. :)

  3. I got that book from the library but haven't finished it yet. I have a feeling I will have to return it and check it back out again!

  4. Your blanket is so fun and colorful! I hadn't heard of the book, but I'm going to check it out. I love all things Jane Austen -- though I actually haven't read "Pride and Prejudice"! I plan to finally remedy that this summer, but I want to find the perfect copy to buy first.

    1. Oh, you are going to love Pride and Prejudice. :) Of course I think that...it's my favorite book. There are so many beautiful copies to choose from!

  5. I like your blanket a lot! And hadn't heard of the book - there seems no end in sight to this Jane Austen popularity. I wonder what she'd make of it. I will recommend it to the book club at our library.

    1. Thanks! It's funny that you mention that. In this book, the author tries to explain to the readers in her Latin American groups how loved Austen is in America, and about the "fan merchandise" available and all of that. :)

    1. Thanks! I agree. I love being able to remember where each yarn came from, whether it's a project I knitted or mini skeins that I was sent or purchased. :)
