Yarn Along

yarn along 4.8.14

This tank sweater is one of the most exciting things I’ve ever knit. I think the neckband is going to be a bit on the large side, and I had to rip out the place where the body of the sweater joins the neckband three times before I got it right, but overall I am very excited about this project and have already bought yarn to make another one.

I’m still reading WAY too many books at one time. I’m reading Macbeth with the 9th grade student I tutor, and I’m enjoying it all over again, of course. When I took a survey course on Shakespeare in college, Macbeth was the only tragedy I didn’t like. Now it’s one of my favorites: not quite up there with Hamletbut close.

Sometime soon I’ll put together a post about all the crazy things I’m reading. The title will be “The Unspeakable Chaos of my Reading Life” – note the allusion to Pat Conroy.

My blog vacation is almost over – I promise. Between the two of us, Jill and I published a post a day for 63 days: from February 1 through April 4. Since we both have fairly full lives, I’m pleased with this accomplishment, although I’ll admit that I’m a little bummed that it’s over. Maybe we’ll try again in the summer or fall.

As always, Yarn Along is hosted every Wednesday on Ginny’s wonderful blog, Small Things.

    I LOVE the neckline on that top. I can’t wait to see it finished. It’s great when you really love a pattern so much that you already start mentally planning the next one.

      Thank you! I feel the same way – I’m supposed to be getting things done like crazy this week because I’m going on vacation next week, but all I want to do is knit!

    I love the colors of your knit. I’m looking forward to the finish. The neckline looks great. I hope it works.
