Oh my goodness! Can it possibly be Wednesday already and time for Yarn Along? That sure came round quickly this week :)
I have two W.I.P's on the needles. I have picked up my Best Friend scarf that I started last year. I was just looking at my Ravelry notes and see that I cast on for this project in July! Good grief, I didn't think I had neglected it for that long :)
I have made quite a bit of progress with it since picking it up again and am loving the feel of the Cascade 22 Superwash yarn. I'm trying to remember why I set it aside now - I think it could have been because there was just too much going on and I was struggling to concentrate on the lacy pattern. Since picking it up I have found the lacy pattern easy to follow, perhaps my head was just not in the right space last year.
My other W.I.P is that beautiful Fair Isle project I mentioned last week. Unfortunately I had to frog back to the cuff as my naughty cats got hold of it one evening and made a huge mess of all my hard work. Still, you can't remain cross with them for too long, not when they come for a cuddle to make up :)
It feels like the Fair Isle work is going smoothly but now that I look at the stitches close up on my photograph I can see that not all the stitches are even. I don't think these are going to be the 'perfect' Fair Isle mitts but it is my first go so hopefully I can only improve from hereon in.
Reading: I found this book while browsing the Kindle store. Amish Knitting Circle by Karen Anna Vogel. I've managed a couple of chapters since downloading it and am enjoying it so far. It's a light read combining things that are close to my heart, friends, faith and knitting.
