Yarn Along

I thought I would be far more productive this week than I have been. I did manage to cast on the right side of my mom's vest.
I have finished the ribbing and made the opening for the pocket. Now I am working on the body of the right side. I have 66 rows of easy reverse stockinette stitch to knit. I think this will go quite quickly. 

I am joining Ginny at Small Things for Yarn Along again this week. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to.

I finished reading A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams. I really liked this book. It is set in the 1930's. It is a love story ....sort of.... that deals with the taboos and prejudices of the time. There are family secrets that are slowly revealed as the story goes back and forth between 1931 and 1938. I have to agree with some of the Amazon reviewers that this book is a little like a soap opera, but I still found myself wanting to keep on reading. 
I haven't lined up another book to read yet. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I wish I could get picture that is true to the color. It is actually a teal. Thanks for the comment.

We all have those moments. I was home sick yesterday which offered me the time to cast on the right side.

It is actually teal. Someday, I will get an accurate picture of it. This is the first article of clothing I have made for Mom, but I have often given her handmade gifts.

Hopefully it will be finished fairly soon. Thanks for visiting.
