Yarn Along

A good friend of mine recently gave me several knitting books.

I decided to use The Knitter’s Bible by Claire Crompton to learn some new stitches.

I love Gansey Patterns and chose Lightning to start with.

Sometimes a small project is just what you need-quick satisfaction!

A stomach bug has hit our house 😦

I was first hit and, since I was in bed all day Tuesday, I used the time to listen to an audio book.

First up was Bell, Book and Scandal by Jill Churchill.

A quick audio book and perfect for when you can’t really concentrate.

Then I started Knit The Season by Kate Jacobs.

I’ve read the Friday Night Knitting Club, so I was familiar with the characters.

So far, so good.

I’m still reading A Slice of Murder and working on my crochet sweater and my Charlotte Square.

Poor Miss ME is laying next to me as I type this…second hit in the plague 😦

Hopefully, the week improves at Summer Street.

    You’ve reminded me I have a crochet and knitting one by the same writer. I should try knitting some little patches to practice new stiches.
    See? You’ve inspired me, thank you!

    I hope you’re back to full steam ahead now and your little one gets over it soon.

    Oh, it’s os awful to be a sick Mom when you have a little one….the only thing worse is being a sick Mom with a healthy little one! I hope you both get over ‘the bug’ soon. I didn’t know Kate Jacobs had a new book out….I’ve read 2 so I better go check….there might be more! Your Knitting Bible looks good too. How smart you are to practice stitches and make a cute little coffee/tea cozy.

    That’s a cute little cup cozy. I love experimenting with stitch dictionaries and years ago made a throw made of squares featuring whatever stitch patterns I fancied.

    Hope you’re all better soon.

    Oh ick. I’m sorry your crew got hit with that. That is never fun. The cup cozy is cute and it’s always a plus to make something that’s environmentally friendly.

    Oh no! Hope you are all over your ickiness soon, not fun. Seriously impressed with the knitting… my knitting skills are pretty basic. Think I need to try some simple patterns next.

    Your knitting stitches are so perfect! I’m so sorry that a stomach bug has come to visit your home. I hope it doesn’t spread to everyone, and that you get completely well soon
