Yarn Along

Wow we are just SO BUSY this summer! No thanks to a crazy July I have finished the test knit cardi for Jennie at A Lovely Homemade Life. It's a bit big, but lovely and warm. In retrospect I should have adjusted the length to suit my short stature, and really yoke shoulders don't work for lades with no shoulders to speak of. It's my first cardi for myself though, and I'm looking forward to layering up in it when the cold weather comes!

This week I am reading the same as everyone else: Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee. Thanks to a printing error we ended up with two copies, and Husband and I were going to read side by side and discuss, but I am well over half way through and he hasn't started yet. I wish I had used the correct copy now! Our mothers are waiting in the wings to read them next, so at least I can discuss it with my mother in law. My mother and I never like the same books!

I hope to be back later in the week to share with you some of the exciting things we have got up to this summer, and some of the work we have managed to do on our little project house. Ok, Husband has done most of the work, I'm just the monkey/childcare.

What are you crafting and reading this week? I'd love to hear from you! Pop over to the Yarn Along at Ginny's to see what everyone else is up to!


p.s. yes my hair is very pink! I love it!


  1. pretty sweater that looks oh so cozy and I love the pink hair :) Back in my younger years I loved dying my hair all sorts of temporary colors (that was in then).

    1. Thank you! I used to have pink hair as a teenager, and I figured that I don't have a grown-up job at the moment so I might as well do it if it makes me happy!

  2. Oh the cardi looks lovely, well done.

  3. Great knitting! Thanks for visiting and linking with Whatcha Workin' On Wednesday!

  4. I must be the last person to start reading this book. I've really got to get on with it before spoilers get leaked! The cardi looks really nice!
