I really enjoy reading the Yarn Along(s) that others post on a regular basis. Since finishing my masters degree, actually having time to read and finding my love of reading slowly re-surfacing, I thought it was time to start joining in! Unfortunately, I am so far behind in my reading that I am playing catch up from the past 3 years. Oh well. I just finished The Help by Kathryn Stockette – Loved it. Can’t say enough good things. I did cry a couple of times towards the end (particularly the chapter in the church near to the end).
Currently, I am listening to The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood. I am on chapter …. 7ish?
I don’t have much to say about it just yet other than that I am really enjoying listening to it and I am very much enjoying the narrator.
While listening away, I am steadily working away on my epic cardigan/jacket that was bogging me down last week. I figured out why this was such a mental block for me to get finished: The sleeves are longer than normal (22”) and it’s seed stitch the whole way down. Ugh.
BUT, here I am at the cuff – of the second sleeve!
This is a little peak of the first sleeve – I added wrist warmers to the inside of the cuff. This is something I have wanted to add to a jacket-like cardigan for a while after seeing lilau’s sedum. I was inspired by the warm, cozy feel that wrist warmers add to a cardigan that is meant to be worn as a jacket. More on my addition when I have photos of the FO to show you.
ps. Did I mention it’s snowing here in Vancouver at this moment? Weird, huh …
