Yarn Along


Reading: The Shepherd's Life, by James Rebanks. I've been wanting to read this book for a while, because I'm very interested in the Lake District and sheep and fiber things in general (obviously). At the beginning, it wasn't quite as amazing as I'd hoped, but now that I'm halfway through I'm liking it more.

Knitting: My Germinate shawl. It's grown a lot since the last time I posted about it. I'm working on the last stripe section now, and then I'll have only one more lace section until it's finished. The lace already looks very nice, I can't wait to block it! (There's something you'll never hear me say. Only with lace.)

  2. I'm stockpiling all my projects to block at one go, assumming I have enough pins (I want some of those pin combs from yarn.com). It's so space consuming for my room unless I can manage to be allowed to let it clutter up a part of the house that isn't my floor.

    1. That sounds like a good idea! I don't have enough foam mats, pins, or cat-free space to block more than one item at a time, unfortunately.

    1. I ended up enjoying it too, though maybe not as much as I'd hoped to. :)

  4. I loved that book. I listened to it on Audible, which was great because of the accent!
