Joining in with Ginny's Yarn Along after months away!
In addition to my first trimester aversion to staying awake all day and coffee came a complete lack of desire to knit. I can hardly believe it myself. I actually felt sick when I thought of making a stitch. Still, I started the Ten Stitch Twist blanket in the foreground using Fame Trend sock yarn. I LOVE the colours and the spiral shaping (using short rows) but was unsettled about the "bowl" thing that was happening. I imagine that with some blocking, it'll flatten out. But I set it aside anyways to start another using larger needles and thicker yarn. The blanket resting on the books is made from Cascade 220 and will hopefully grow as a gift for a friend's baby.
If you have a weekend to pass, I highly recomment Kathleen Grissom's The Kitchen House. I started it on a Friday afternoon and finished it Saturday morning. Yes, I stayed up most of the night reading it, and didn't regret it. It's a tremendous story. Read it.
I'm also starting to look at pregnancy-related books. I'm enjoying "The Natural Pregnancy Book" by Aviva Jill Romm.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope to find time this evening to check out YOUR links, too. For now, I must get ready for work. Enjoy the lovely weather (at least it's lovely in our part of the world)!
