As the title suggests this yarn along is mostly about my mom. Why? Because at 87 years old she just finished knitting an afghan for my son.
It is made with Vanna's Choice Yarn. Here is a close-up.
It is a beautiful basket-weave pattern.
Next she is planning to knit an afghan for my daughter. We will pick out yarn for it the next time my daughter visits.
I have made progress on the vest I am knitting for my mom for Christmas.
The body of the vest is reverse stockinette stitch which I discovered just means that the pearl side is the right side. I have a lot to learn with knitting. It is knitting up quite quickly. I just have to limit how much time I spend on it each day. I don't want to re-injure my hand like I did in January.
I am joining Ginny's Yarn Along again this week. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? I am also joining Tami for WIP Wednesdays. Pop on over to their sites to see what other bloggers are up to.
As for my reading, I finished Beachcombers by Nancy Thayer. I loved this book. It is a the story of three sisters and their father, their lives, their loves and their insecurities. I have definitely found another author whose books I really like. Nancy Thayer joins Debbie Macomber, Susan Wiggs, Nora Roberts and Sheryl Woods as authors that I will continually return to reading. I am headed out to the library to pick up a few more books as soon as I finish this post. I will try to get another book by Nancy Thayer.
Thanks for stopping by.
