Yarn Along--where to pick up?


No more socks on the needles. Yay! (Although I have a lone Jaywalker that's still awaiting its mate ... not happening this month.) This week I've knit a few hexipuffs from the leftovers of my Wind and Willow socks, and now I'm ready to pick up one of my abandoned shawls and get back to work.

When I say "ready," I mean I spend a lot of time looking at them and thinking about it. Because I have no idea what row I've left off on, for either of them. And the one on the left was even abandoned mid-row. Not sure if that will make it easier or harder to discover where I stopped knitting. The one on the right is a Swallowtail for my friend Nicole; the one on the left is a Cloud Illusions, probably for myself.

Meanwhile, after having consumed Children of God (sequel to The Sparrow) in five days, I have picked up the second Laura Ingalls Wilder book and am enjoying it immensely. It's a huge switch from from Children of God, which was an intense book and is still very much on my mind. I shall miss those characters very much. I would like to write a post about those books--but there are so many posts I intend to write and don't get around to. We'll see.

Joining up with Ginny's yarn along.

  1. Yay! I suspected that one on the right was for me. How pretty! I can't wait to see it finished! Seriously, Rosemary, send me some pics to choose from and I'll try to bump up your woodburning for the exchange. I've owed Kim one for over a year. It's so small compared to the others, but it has reflections and a lot of detail, and I've been scared to scared it. :/

    There is a poetry book you might enjoy. It's called Song of the Horse by Samuel Hazo. It's an Autumn House Press book that I'm reading to review. It has a lot of nature and family and religious references in it that you might find interesting. Every line needs to be pondered, and it's taking me a while to read through it.

    1. Scared to start it*. Ugh, blogger needs a comment edit function!

    2. The book sounds interesting!

      No worries about rushing the burning--however long you need is fine. :) I want to get a picture of the Callenberg crest, but Keith's dad has it, and we're not up there all that much these days ...

    3. I would love to do a family shot with the crest somehow around you guys.

      I'll try to finish the book before Saturday so you can borrow it. No promises, though. :/

  3. Both projects are gorgeous! I can honestly say I would love to own both. I'm going to have to look up the cloud illusions one I haven't knit that yet!!

    1. Thank you! It's a pretty pattern ... I like that designer's shawls. :) (I am blanking on her name at the moment ...)

  4. Wow - that is a bit of a challenge you have there.
    Both are looking gorgeous where ever they are at.
    Pretty colours too.
    Enjoy.
