Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny from Small Things.

I’m so excited to say my mystery project from last week is finished!  I called it Sweet Memories Cowl.  Very happy with how it came up.  The Zara Chiné yarn is so lovely and soft, perfect for against your neck, no hint of scratchiness.  I posted about it here.  It is also listed as a free pattern on Ravelry , I am excited to say, as it is my first ‘published’ project.  Let me know if you try the pattern out.  I’d love to see pictures too!

I’m still working on the Beyond Puerperium that I originally started for a friend’s baby, that ended up too big.  It will be Jairah’s once finished.

As for reading, still plugging away at, The Kashmir Shawl.  I’m trying to sneak in any reading time possible, as it is starting to get interesting.  While at the library with the kids the other day, I came across, Anne Frank by Susanna Davidson.  I was drawn to all the photos.  It is written for the younger reader, so it should be a quick read.

Can’t wait to see what you have all created this week.  Jacinta x

    Love the color of the sweater! And reading…yes there is always sneaking in as much reading as possible here as well. My kids are so little that I have constantly subjected them to whatever mama is reading as part of their read aloud time – I have to say it helps them fall asleep much faster 🙂

    Congrats on your first published pattern.
    I read the diary of Anne Frank at school and then got the chance to visit the museum in the actual house on a trip there when I was 17. It’s such a fascinating but sad story.

    I love the new cowl! Just gorgeous!!!! I’ve come of the opinion that anything about Anne Frank is read worthy. She was such an inspirational young lady.

    I can’t wait to see J in his sweater… it’s looking lovely! We did a whole bunch of learning about Anne Frank last year. Her story is amazing… truly.
