Yarn Along


It's that time of the week to link up with Ginny at the Small Things blog.

Jumper King Cole pattern 3360

knit in King Cole Galaxy
 
As you can see I am making good progress on the back of Christopher's jumper, I've done the armhole shaping so I'm hoping that I can get this piece of it finished in the next couple of days.

On the reading front I've finished Anthony Trollope's The Warden since I last posted.  It's been around twenty years since I last read it and I thoroughly enjoyed it again.  I especially liked Trollope's sly dig at Dickens as the successful author 'Mr Popular Sentiment'.  Now in a complete change of scene I'm reading Terry Pratchett's Monstrous Regiment although it's struck me that there are more than a few similarities between Anhk Morpork and Barchester!

I missed commenting on your beautiful Mermaid Whimzi in the frame and OH SIGH - Dorothy Walpole is so beautiful. I passed mine along to a good friend who wanted to stitch her and I knew I never would. Chris' sweater is coming right along. Have you been able to wear your Deco yet? Hope Spring has come to you - Mel

I'm sure Christopher can hardly wait for you to finish--that is such a pretty color, Karoline!

OOOOOOH! Christopher's jumper progress is gorgeous......love the color with all of the little sequins.

My favorite Anthony Trollope story is "The Pallisers".....absolutely love it.

Have fun with your reading and knitting! Blessings!
