Yarn Along – Aug 3 Stripes!

from small things

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? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr.

Yarn Along - Aug 3
I’ve been mostly trying to stay on top of the blog reading this past week, so that’s my google reader page on the ipad. I am dreaming about starting new projects, but I am actually only working on two things. My Neon Nightmare, a massive granny stripe blanket – it is starting to get heavier and take up more space as I work on it. So far, I’ve got 28 rows done, about 11 inches, and I am planning to work this up to use up ALL the yarn that I have for each color. I do believe that when the cooler days and nights come this way (and they are coming!) I will look forward to working on this. This project is boosting my crochet confidence as well, so I am quite pleased. The red & white stripey thing is part of a surprise gift that I do not want to talk too much about – the recipient has swung by my blog once in a while.

I have another striped object to share – I finished the Rainbow Marley last week at SnB. I made myself finish the twirly bits on the top, and thanks to Costumechick for her input on the twirly bits – she suggested putting them together tassle-like (versus pinwheel style) and that seemed to work out just right.

Will you go away if I don’t look at you?

Seriously kid, we’re the original siblings – help me out and take this off my head.
