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?

Lovely yarn, your shawl is going to be very pretty indeed.

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.
