Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny from Small Things.

Still knitting away on the Beyond Puerperium.  I have finished the body, just deciding if I will do short or long sleeves, then some buttons need to be picked out.

I have some lovely Noro that I have recently added to my stash.  I few weeks back,  I thought I had lost Jairah’s knitted hat and after searching for over a week, decided to buy some more yarn to make another.  Can you guess where this is going?  Of course, after buying the Noro (costs a small fortune over here), I found his hat.  It had been put up on top of a cupboard and obviously I hadn’t looked that high up!  Anyway, now I need to find a project to use the two balls of Noro.  Maybe another cowl?  Not sure yet.  May look at Ravelry for some inspiration.

As for reading.  I finished The Kashmir Shawl, by Rosie Thomas.  I can’t say I loved the book, maybe liked?  I found myself reading it, just to finish it.  I think it had too much in the way of affairs outside of marriages for me to find the book captivating, more sad if anything.  Anyway, I bought another book on Kindle this week, called Fields of Corn by Sarah Price.  It’s a good old Amish story, so should be quite a contrast from The Kashmir Shawl!  I’ve only just started it, so haven’t formed an opinion on it so far.

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

    I wish I had the problem of deciding what to knit with that awesome yarn!:)
    I think a cowl would look really pretty.

    The Children’s Rainbow Scarf on Ravelry is a great project with 2 balls of Noro! Where do you look for buttons? I just finished a Little Coffee Bean cardigan and am on the hunt for extra-special buttons!

    Noro is the most delicious! I had a scarf from Silk Garden once, and I lost it.
    That still makes me a little sad in the wintertime.

    I am like you I dislike affairs outside the marriage. I will be skipping the book then! I say another cowl, it will show off the striping of noro beautifully!

    Yummie Noro. You’re right it does cost a small fortune here. Enjoy the Rav trawling. I could spend hours there!

    I have two small balls of yarn both of them different. I don’t know what kind they are since neither have labels and I have no idea what to do with them. I’m interested to hear what you think of the Amish book. We just drove through Lancaster, PA (no time to stop) and that is the heart of Amish country.

    The Noro is lovely. I hope you find the perfect pattern to go with it!

    That happens to me all the time.

    I think a cowl might be lovely in Noro. I’ve never used this yarn but I hear that the colors are incredible.

    If it makes you feel better….Noro is a fortune here too. I think a cowl would be lovely!

    I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Noro, but never had any myself. Those colours look really beautiful for autumn!
