Yarn Along


 I'm joining Ginny for another lovely yarn along. I am currently reading Tess of d'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy, it's quite good so far. The sweater is from this pattern  and it has been wonderful to knit. I decided on short sleeves to make it a bit more of a cozy vest. I just have to finish the button loop & then I will block it.

I read Tess about a year ago and bawled when I finished it. I wasn't expecting to have that reaction at all, but I guess I got more invested in the book than I thought. What a beautiful little sweater!

I almost chose that pattern but I heard there will be a Knit A Long at Sweet Mama soon so I decided to wait for that. Your kimono turned out so sweet that now I'm all fired up to try it soon!

so sweet. for a new little blueberry?

Gen said...

Thank you all for the kind words. I believe this book has some suprises in store as well.

Lori ann,
Thank you & sadly there is no little blueberry in the works. Funny, I always though that I would have a big family with lots of babies and now here we are, just the two of us.
I am knitting some baby things for dear friends who are expecting & I am so excited for them.

I think this will be the first sweater I cast on for my new baby, followed by the one in your last post!
