Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me every Wednesday to share a single photo of what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Share your photo on your blog, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us!~

Yarn Along-7616

I’m wondering if I can squeeze in a little bit of plant work before baby comes, and pulled Making More Plants off the shelf this week.  It’s a beautiful book and reminds me of my college days, studying plants, working in a nursery.  Those were happy times! 
I’ve been knitting more than reading, and swatched yesterday for an ambitious laceweight cardigan for myself.  We’ll see how far I get on this one.  I love the look of the pattern, and I love the yarn, but my stitches look wonky and messy.  I’m going to block the swatch today and see what I think!

    I keep you and your family in my prayers. I am so grateful for everything you post and share — I pass these on to my daughters and daughters-in-laws.

  2. Two of my favorite activities are reading and gardening. I admire your skill at knitting.

  3. Ginny, thank you for hosting this linky party each week. I enjoy reading about everyone’s projects! That lace weight cardigan will be perfect for summer.

  4. lovely!!! it is good to return to things (for you gardening) that you have loved for so long! I love your gardens! God bless you and the baby to come! Will pray for you again today! 🙂 Hope the knitting goes well, swatching is good!

  5. WOW, that knit you started is ambitious ! I love lace sweaters but I have yet to finish knitting one. Hope you are feeling well, you seem to have much more energy with this little one than your last pregnancy. I’m so glad,
    you and your family remain in my prayers. Can’t wait to hear this sweet baby is here!!!!!!

  6. I would love to read that book. I have only propagated one plant but I have been so excited about it. It was from my friends late Mother’s fuchsia tree and I was able to give my friend a plant in a pot from her Mother’s tree. We have taken many cuttings from it over the years and we call it “the parent tree” 😀

  7. Good morning! This is my first Yarn Along. I’ve been looking forward to it for days.

  8. I like the look of your book and have added it to my list. My plants in help! With two tropical storms and now heat in the 90’s I am about ready to throw it all in and hope for better weather in the fall. 🙂

  9. ignore the wonky stitches, that is what blocking is for!! lovely cardigan design and I love that it is for YOU 🙂

I love to hear from you!
