Yarn Along

Linking with Ginny again to get some knitting and reading inspiration.  I love Wednesdays!

As for reading, I downloaded 50 Shades of Grey. I had to see what the hype was about.  I am halfway through and yes, it's difficult to put down.  And no, it's not for kids.  It's entertaining and  for my "summer reading at the beach" sort of thing, I want to be entertained.  It's kind of a tradition Iv'e had since I was young.  I will be downloading the second book by this weekend I'm sure.

I wound my loop batt into a ball and decided to knit the Oaklet Shawl.  It's great knitting right now, especially since I want to read while I'm knitting it and it's possible with the stockinette portion.
I love the color changes.  The shawl is looking good too.
Did you notice my  birthday needles? Love them.  I am a Signature Needle convert.  I'm saving my pennies for another pair.  I'm going for a set of sock needles.  Those awesome points make all the difference when you are knitting with finer yarn.
So what's on your needles these days?

I still haven't read 50 Shades yet but it's on my night stand so I really should either start it or return it to the library. Your shawl is looking great.

I keep hearing about Signatures, but have yet to own any. Perhaps I need to start savings some pennies. Love the color changes in the yarn. Gorgeous.

I, too, enjoyed all three Grey books. And, no, they are certainly NOT for kids. ;-)

I love the color changes in your shawl. I look forward to seeing the finished shawl.
