~ 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! ~
I worked on my Barn Sweater far more than I expected to this week, and I sure do have sore forearms! I am almost finished with the raglan increases and have just joined my second skein of yarn. The instructions for the yoke were a little mind blowing to me and it took me an evening, followed by another morning of puzzling to figure out what turned out to be surprisingly simple. If you’ve knit this sweater, you might know what I’m talking about, the whole increases and buttonhole rows written separately, but knit simultaneously thing. Now that I have that figured out, I think that the rest of the sweater should be straightforward.
I’m a little more than halfway through Counting by 7s, and everyone who recommended it was right! It’s a great story. I think I am on track to finish it up just in time for the highly anticipated release of Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman next week! I pre-ordered it months ago, and can’t wait!
