Yarn Along: Wednesday 2nd November

Ginny over at Small Things Says:

Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr.

Not much knitting has been going on here.  Well... SOME has.  I had to frog my 3 hour sweater yoke after I realised I had not yet made my top long enough.  Here it is in its almost completed form.  I toned down the colour in my photo so you could actually see detail and not a red blur. 
I am knitting the yoke flat so I didn't have to figure out how to knit the sleeves.
The book is an anthology of urban fantasy stories by a bevy of authors- from straight mystery authors to fantasy authors.  A lot of fun :)
I still have other books on the go, but this is my 'strictly for fun' book right now. 


  1. I like a nice anthology!
    Practically instant gratification!

  2. Rachel, I dilike frogging and redoing projects but it feels so good when it is done right. Thanks for the comment on the lambie headband. I forgot to mention that it is crocheted : ) I am only just getting started with knitting.

  3. Jess: LOL that is very true :) These are nice short stories, so I am enjoying them :)
    Momma: I hate frogging- but I far prefer something that fits ;) And I knit AND crochet... no worries there (in fact I am better at crocheting, I just like the look of knitting better- unless it is lace when I prefer crochet ;)).

  4. I hate having to frog, but sometimes there's just no other option if you want it to fit in the end! Hope it comes along quickly from now on :)

  5. The book sounds great - love Ms. Harris!! ;)

    Always a bummer when you have to go back and adjust a WIP, but is it looking lovely :)

  6. I'm sorry you had to frog, what a pain. But it looks lovely!

  7. Sorry that you had to spend time frogging but I suppose you actually want to wear your sweater rather than look at it. :)

    Love that word...bevy...such an interesting word.

  8. Well, good for you for jumping right back into that sweater after frogging. When that happens to me it has to go into time-out for a while. :-)

  9. Thank you so much for your clear explanation of how to make that buttonhole on my phone cozy! I really appreciate your time and support! :-)

  10. You're welcome- although it sounds like you worked it out fine on your own :)

  11. pinkundine: that is very true :) It is definitely going fast now...

    Lee Ann: so do I! Thanks :)

    Kate- thank you :)

    Ellen: yes, I do lol Thanks- I aim to please :)

    Rebecca: thanks :) The only reason it didn't go into time out this time was because it is a fast knit :)

  12. I am so pleased with myself for remembering what my daughter told me frogging is. Rip it! Rip it! (That's right, right?)The book sounds fun. All Marina has been reading lately while knitting is textbooks. Life of the college student!

    Peace and Laughter,

  13. Your yarn is a pretty color even though it's "toned down". Frogging is a part of knitting for me since I do it so often.


  14. I am having to frog bits of my ripple blanket as I go along and find at the end of along row, that I have mis counted near the beginning. It does seem to catch up fairly quickly though - as if the yearn knows where to go by itself.
    I like a bit if fun reading too. Big CL fan here - the November issue is very cosy. xx


I always enjoy your comments, so please feel free to leave them or message me if you cannot!
