Yarn Along

~ 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. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
Yarn Along

Knitting:  Circumnavigate in Eulela DK  (almost halfway finished, taking my time.  lovely pattern, lovely yarn.)

Reading:  Far from the Madding Crowd  (in chapter two, so no real opinion yet.)

The little orange sweater is finished.  I love it after all.  Pictures tomorrow!

  1. I was a little late to the game due to computer issues. Here is the link in case any one would like to take a peek.

  2. Hi, it’s my very first yarn along 😀

  3. I am exactly halfway thru knitting the Circumnavigate myself. This is the first thing I am knitting for myself, and not for the kids. Nice rich color you chose.

  4. You’ve got me thinking that I need to knit myself a cowl this autumn. Yours looks lovely!

  5. lovely, lovely color! I look forward to seeing the orange sweater too 😉

  6. I haven’t read any Hardy in a LONG time. You almost make me want to go back and read him again (it’s just too much concentration for me right now). I love the scarf you are working on!

  7. I am knitting the exact same scarf! It is very lovely I think. I am sure you will finish long before I do though. Hardy is good, but I haven’t tackled him in a while.

  8. I love Thomas Hardy! I believe you will to.

  9. Great color of your Circumnavigate, and I can’t wait to see the little orange sweater.

  10. Oh, I can’t wait to see the little orange sweater! And, wow, what you’re knitting now looks pretty lovely, too.

    Thanks so much for hosting this every week! One of my favorite rituals is this mid-week link up, whether I put up a post or not I love being able to see what everyone is reading and knitting 🙂

    Best wishes!

  11. I love Thomas Hardy!

  12. Like everyone else I am loving that yummy yarn – looks so smooth and cool and lovely to work with. Looking forward to seeing what it will be.
    And I love Thomas Hardy. This is perfect weather for him, I think!

  13. I love the color of the yarn that you are using! Thanks for hosting!

  14. Great color! First time I’ve joined your yarn along. Thanks for hosting!

  15. Hi Ginny
    This is the first time I’ve joined in, so thanks for hosting.
    I love the colour of your yarn, a perfect shade for cold days.
    Good luck with the books I alway struggle with classics apart from
    Jane Austen.

  16. Lovely yarn for your circumnavigate, I finished knitting mine about a week ago, beautiful pattern. Far From the Madding Crowd was my setwork book for my English major, I really enjoyed it.
    Take care

  17. Love the color of that yarn. Can’t wait to see it finished.

  18. I’m so glad you loved the orange sweater in the end, I thought the colour was fabulous!

  19. Love the colour you are working with and can’t wait to see that sweater.

  20. The rich color of your project! Love it! I think I’d knit every thing in that color and its various shades if I didn’t think my family would grow tired of the same color always.

  21. I so love the colour of that little orange cardigan …it must be something to do with the season.

    Happy knitting.

  22. I’m loving the colour of the yarn!!!!!

  23. I can’t wait to see! The pumpkin color looks perfect for fall. Cowl will look great too!

  24. I can’t think of “Far from the Madding Crowd” without thinking of Alan Bates, who was my favorite actor. I also read the book years ago, but can’t remember my opinion of it.

  25. Looking forward to seeing the orange cardi. Will you be making your patterns available for purchase?


  26. Oh, I have that pattern – I saw it somewhere in my Yarn Along travels a few months ago & fell in love. I haven’t made it yet, though. Yours looks lovely; the yarn is perfect for it. I also think you will love Far from the Madding Crowd; I read it in school and liked it very much. (Now I think you have inspired me to go through some boxes of books in the attic to find my copy…) xo

  27. Oh, Far From the Madding Crowd…I read it many moons ago, great book! I hope you enjoy it too Ginny. Love the colour of your yarn.

  28. My favourite book! A friend of ours read a passage from this book at our wedding. Makes me so happy 🙂

  29. Your cowl is going to be lovely 🙂

  30. Thank you for hosting this week after week. I look forward to reading others posts as well as giving me a goal each week for my knitting.

  31. lovely colour yarn and the pattern looks great x

  32. Great pattern and yarn combo, another for my to do list!

  33. That cowl pattern is gorgeous. I love when they’re long enough to double up around your neck.

  34. We’re almost matching in yarn colours this week! I’m so pleased to hear that you like the orange sweater 🙂

  35. I read Far from the Madding Crowd years ago and loved it, I hope you enjoy it too!

  36. A great pattern and colour. Lovely. 🙂

  37. I think you will love Far From the Madding Crowd. It is one of our favourites 🙂

  38. Great color! I am working on different scarfs these days. I planned to make one in this color, too. Thank you for hosting WIP this week!

  39. I cannot wait to see the finished photos, quite the cliff hanger that I love 🙂 I am longing to finish something soon, it’s been some time.
