Yarn Along (no. 26)

by Josée

For the last few weeks I’ve watched Yarn Along come and go. I wanted to join in on the fun but never took the time to take a picture of my project.  Yes, I am still knitting. I’m actually a little surprised by this. Usually I stop once spring arrives. The thing is, I have quite a few friends expecting babies in the next six months so I need to work on projects through the summer if I’m going to knit them anything. What do you knit for a baby gift?

Right now I’m working on a Tiny Tea Leaves Cardi. It’s so cute I want to knit one for myself but the long rows of continuous KFAB or K2Tog are brutal! The book I’m reading is a Christian Romance novel Second Chance Brides (Texas Boardinghouse Brides, Book 2). It’s fluff but I’m awaiting a bunch of serious books by Scott Hahn that I ordered off bookcloseouts.com. Do you have any favorite fluff books?

To see what other are knitting go over to Ginny’s blog.

Cute cardi!
I don't have any favourite fluff (new word to me ;)) books in English, but I read some series in this category in Norwegain.

Your Tiny Tea Leaves is darling! I have heard the same complaint about the ruching, that it's interminable. But it comes out so awesome! I might slog my way through one for my daughter anyway.

Adorable Tiny Tea Leaves. One of these days, I plan to cast on a Tea Leaves for me! 🙂

A fluff book is nice once in a while. While not quite fluff I always enjoy the Ladies Detective Agency books by Alexander McCall Smith for an easy read.
Your tea leaves looks great – may be just the inspiration I need to get mine going!

I knit up sweaters for babies-on-the-way.

As far as "fluff" reading, I've started reading a lot of Christian historical romances like you. I can't help it! 😉

Gah… we can't be friends anymore. I don't know what I was thinking doing mine in size 6. I'm making it a little longer in the body hoping that will help it last longer but I'll be lucky to finish it by the time she's 6….

And yes, the kfb over and over is painful… I think at one time I had like 350 stitches on there, rather daunting!
