Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny from Small Things for yarn along.

I’ve been knitting Jairah’s Aksel vest this week.  It is knitting up really quickly, thanks to using magic loop.  I wrote a post earlier this week on how I feel so silly for not learning this method earlier.  I didn’t have the required yarn size the pattern called for, so I have used different sized needles and following the size 2 pattern instructions, I’m hoping for a size 4 outcome.  The pattern isn’t fantastically written .  There are a few typos and some of the instructions are a little vague.  May have to make a few etra notes on my Ravelry page once the vest is finished.

I’ve knitted a lot more since I took the picture this morning, but the sun sets now about 5.30pm, so I didn’t bother taking another picture, as the lighting will be wrong.

I’ve finally ordered some yarn (Ruby colour) for my next project, Tea Leaves cardigan, fingers crossed it will arrive before the weekend, as I want to make a start.

As for reading, I finished my kindle book, Growing Up Country: Memories of an Iowa Farm Girl, by Carol Bodensteiner.  It was a lovely read and I could relate to a lot of things she wrote about.  I can highly recommend it as a light, entertaining read.

Looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations.  Jacinta x
