Yarn Along

Making progress joining Ginny again for the yarn along.  I certainly feel a change in the air.  Summer is not gone yet, but fall is approaching and my urge to knit is coming back.
I'm loving this sweater for Molly, the color is fabulous and the yarn is so buttery soft.  I think I'm about ready to close off the cap sleeves!  I'm keeping excellent notes as I think it will turn out to be a fast knit little pattern.  There is still a bit of this yarn left on sale at jimmybeanswool (so hard to not buy more).
As for reading I'm still reading the Mysterious Benedict Society and enjoying it a great deal.  I've also been thumbing through a recent used textbook purchase Glencoe Life Science.  I think it will be great for school this year.  A bit older, but with my help the kids will have no problem.  Of course I've also been thumbing through Amanda Blake Soule's newest book The Rhythm of Family it's simple and beautiful as we all knew it would be.
As always thanks to Ginny for hosting.

  1. So minty green! It does look soft. I too, have the Rhythm book but am waiting to delve into it. Don't want to be distracted by something else. That something else is prepping for our school year. I wish summer would stay a few more months! :)

  7. I saw the Mysterious Benedict Society somewhere and made a mental note for when my kids are older - but maybe I should read it myself! Have to read Amanda's new book too - now that I just found out it exists!

  9. Lovely bright green color. Reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream... I'm sure it will be a beautiful sweater when finished.
