Yarn Along

I'm yarning along again with Ginny at Small Things this week. Come and join the fun...


I finished a project for myself!  I started this back in December and then for some unknown reason I put it down and stopped working on it for the last 3 months or so.  I decided after doing a bunch of baby knits that I needed something different to work on.  Since I didn't have that many things hanging out in my WIP pile I figured I would start with that and thus, this... This is made from Carina Spencer's Faraway, So Close pattern using KnitPicks Chroma worsted in the regency colorway. I was worried that the pink would be way too bright in the beginning but as the shawl got bigger the colors evened out a bit and actually it looks really nice.  This is the 3rd FASC that I have made and I really love this pattern.  It's so easy and yet the end result is really beautiful. Ravelry details here.

Of course I said I was going to take a break from baby knits but as soon as I was finished with my shawl I cast on a new pair of longies. I'm a sucker for instant gratification....

Not much going on reading wise this week.  I have been working a lot and running around a lot so it hasn't left much time for reading.  Plus I don't really have anything that I'm really looking forward to reading right now so.... I need to find something that appeals to me.
