Stacked. Yarn Along – Feb. 27

Yarn Along
This week I worked on five different projects! Two are finished – one of which will have a post of its own and the other was the green sample sweater that was mailed home.  On top of the books I have a cabled figerless mitt, a blanket and a crochet cowl (I’m trying out the Miss Adler design). And as you can see, I have yarn wound and ready to start several new projects as well.  In the stack of yarn cakes there is a skein of Malabrigo Rios ready for a Malabrigo March project, a skein of Good Karma Farm yarn ready for swatching for the Morning Joe KAL, and a skein of yarn my parents bought for me in Chile when they were visiting my brother & his girlfriend.  The Chile yarn does not have a project yet, but it’s been at my desk waiting for inspiration to strike.  I believe it is 100% wool, fingering weight (though I’m not sure), and I have ~90g.  In my search for a project, I’ve also been accumulating other patterns that I am just itching to start – for me, for others, for babies due this year!


Reading wise, I’m halfway through Case Histories and still enjoying it! I have also been reading a chapter of Nancy Clancy: Super Sleuth with the Lorax each night.  We are big Fancy Nancy fans and I thought that this might be a good next step for us, but I think it might be a little too “old” for my girl.  I think a lot of it goes over her head – and there’s not much of the “that’s a fancy word for…” like in the Fancy Nancy books.  A book is a book.  I have a stack of crochet books from the library as well as Knit Local and I am enjoying them enough to consider buying them at some point in the future. 

And how about you?
