Joining in withÂ Ginny at Small Things yarn along this week.
I have cast on a vest this week. Â We went camping over the weekend and I took my knitting in the hope of finding 5 minutes to cast something on. Â I in fact, found a whole hour! I got to knit the night we got home too. Â The pattern is the Pebble Vest. Â I have made quite a few of these over the last few years. Â I find it quick to knit and love the fact it is knit all in one. Â I am using a 70% wool and 30% soya blend yarn. Â It is lovely and soft and I would describe the colour as mocha. Â I am knitting it on 5.5mm needles (US 9). Â The size will probably be around 6-12 months. Â I have another Pebble Vest on Ravelry, that I made for Jairah, if you want to have a look.
I am trying to get through a book by Barbara Kingslover, The Lacuna. Â I was enjoying it to start with, but I must admit I am finding it a bit long winded the further I read (I’m about half way), even though it is well written. Â I usually devour Barbara books, but alas, not this one. Â But I want to finish it before I start reading another book.
I have a giveaway for Easter if you are interested.
