Wednesday Yarn Along

From Ginny: 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?

Linking up with Small Things..

Not a whole lot has changed on the knitting front this week. I realized last Wednesday that I made a mistake on my Laramie shawl so I had to frog and start again. Then frog and start again! I'm not quite sure where I was making the mistake early in the pattern, but I finally had the right amount of stitches. I think this progress picture I am at the same point I was a week ago. Thankfully I am off from the DPNs and on a circular! Whew!

And you can't really tell in this picture, but I am in the process of finishing the MKAL shawl now, too. I have about 12 rows so far on the "wings" section. A lot more rows to go, I'm afraid.

I did a gauge swatch for the sweater I am knitting for Mom this year and I am anxiously waiting to cast on for it. I have to get this MKAL out of the way first. I also have been thinking of other things to knit this week. So many project ideas!

This week I re-read a beach favorite: Life's A Beach. I needed light reading material and something with sand in it.

Happy Knitting!


  1. Can't wait to see the mystery shawl. You've really piqued my curiosity.

    Claire Cook just came out with a new book:

    I knew the name sounded familiar and now I realize that she wrote Must Love Dogs. Love that book!

  2. Sometimes I think knitting just likes to mess with us! Glad you making progress on your Laramie.
    I haven't read Life's a Beach, but think it's something I would really enjoy. I made a promise to myself to hit the beach several times a week for the rest of the year and I want to keep that promise.

  3. Ugh. I hate starting again, but sometimes it has to be done.

  4. Sometimes I think frogging is my hobby as opposed to the kittie..mine would be trying to lay on the shawl!

  5. I hope you fix your mistake and power through. I really get irritated with myself when that happens. I usually put it in a time out.

  6. Frogging is so discouraging! That kitty looks like she is up to something.

  7. I really really love your project! and what a cute cat! :)
