Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny at Small Things.

Yippie!  I have finished the body of my Tea Leaves.  Now on to the sleeves and button band.  Lets see if I can do that by next week!?  I haven’t done any knitting the last couple of days.  We had a small earthquake/earth tremor here last night, which kind of threw me out and tonight I fell asleep on the couch while Greg read the girls their nighttime story, so I think I should have an early night!  Although the wind is blowing something fierce here tonight, which is rather unnerving, with the huge trees that surround us.

The colour is more ruby that the photo shows. The picture was taken at nearly 9pm with poor lighting.

I’m plodding away at my book, Keeper Of The People, but the plot is still developing, so not much to report.  It seems to be an ok read so far though.

Looking forward to seeing what all you talented people have been up to this past week.  Jacinta x

    You are moving right along there! An earthquake would definitely unsettle me. I can understand how you feel.

    We had an earthquake… last summer, maybe? I agree, very unnerving. I hope you get lots of sleep tonight.

    Looks great, I love the color.
    I made a tea leaves too but made the mistake of not buying enough yarn and then not finding a perfect match for the last skein so the sweater was a bit discolored. I learned a lesson. I would like to try this pattern again.

    Ruby is coming along nicely. I love the colour! As for the tremor our girls both felt it as did the cat and dog! Lance and I didn’t because we were fast asleep. Lance was woken up by the dog running up and down the middle of our bed but I didn’t have a clue anything happened until the next day when Sarah mentioned it lol.
