I’m joining up with Ginny on her “yarn along“. I love to knit and love to read – but since I haven’t figured out how to do both at the same time – I also love Audible. I’ve been listening to Swan Song by Robert McCammon and am reading Deadly Game by Christine Feehan which is book 5 of a series I’m borrowing from my sister.
I had another big wedding for flowers this last weekend, so again the fiber fun has just been snuck in here and there. A couple weeks ago, I finally pulled this yarn off the spindle and got it plyed. It had been hanging out on the spindle for a long time, I think it was glad to be free.

I did some looking around Ravelry to find a project that would work for the beautiful little 320 yd skein. I looked through Susanna IC’s patterns (I love her designs) and found Romance and it only calls for 300 yds. It does ask for dk to worsted weight and my yarn is more of a fingering weight, but I think I can make it work. I’l just make the crescent short row section not quite so deep.
I’m not sure if I’ve got the right needle size, I think I’ll do a few more rows and see what it looks/feels like. The color is really pooling on these first couple rows, I’ll have to see how I like that also.
And a little Instagram love to pull it all together…

I hope you all have a good week, see you next week…
So what are you knitting / crocheting / spinning / reading / listening to?
