It's time to check in with Ginny for this weeks Yarn Along.

Jumper King Cole pattern 3360

knit in King Cole Galaxy

Knitting: As I mentioned in my previous post I need to redo the neck on Rosie's jumper.  I have made sure that I have the instructions for Jeni's Super Stretch Bind Off to make sure that it fits this time round!

Reading: This week I am reading 'Travels with my Aunt' by Graham Greene as part of the #GreeneforGran read along that Simon of the Savidge Reads blog organised as a tribute to his Gran.  Graham Greene is an author I always thought wasn't for me but I found 'Travels with my Aunt' in the library and decided to give it a go and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I will have to try some more sometime.

Lovely knitting and the book sounds great!

Good luck with the collar -- hope it fits! I have to try that book. I've read other Graham Greene novels but not that one.

I always seem to make the neck part to tight so now I use a larger needle to cast off.
Looking great, book sounds good I will have to look out for it.

I'm sure it'll be second time lucky with the neck of Rosie's jumper.
I've tried that stretchy bind off on a pair of fingerless mitts and it works a treat.
I'm absolutely loving Craftlit so a big thank you for mentioning it in your last post.

Good luck (or should I say better luck) with the neck of the jumper. I'm sure this time it will be perfect.

Well, I'll add my good luck wishes for the neck of Rosie's jumper. :) And I've never read anything by Graham Greene - just added this one to my ever growing list. :)

The jumper looks very nice. One question: how is the feel of it with those glitter in it? Is is still soft? I was thinking about using wool like this too be never dared so far.
