Yarn Along

This week I am still reading The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald.

Unfortunately, I dropped my iPad and shattered the screen (I seriously couldn’t have done it so spectacularly if I tried…it flew out of my hand and landed in just a way to shatter, not crack, the screen).

So, I needed to request the hard copy at the library.

Luckily, it arrived in a few days after I requested it.

I also received two knitting books that I had ordered from Zulily.com (couldn’t pass up the prices).

First, The Knitter’s Book of Knowledge-A Complete Guide to Essential Knitting Techniques by Debbi Bliss.

This book is BEAUTIFUL!

Seriously, the styling, the colors used, the illustrations and photographs.

It is lovely to look at!

Second, Knit a Square-Create a Cuddly Creature by Nicky Epstein.

I saw her interviewed about this book and thought it would be a good way for me to practice my knitting.  Simple squares that are sewn in such a way to create a small stuffed animal.

A very cute book.

I am working on the following projects:

  • Caron Cake Super Scarf (pattern found in  Simply Crochet Issue 40)
  • Knitted PomPom Scarf using my great Plymouth yarn gifted to me by my SIL
  • Completing a WIP: Continuous Square Lapghan for my aunt (in the above pictures)

I am hoping to tackle all the WIPs I have laying about!
