Yarn Along


My ankle socks were done rather quickly.  I think I actually finished one of them in a day.  That's the beauty of making socks out of sport weight yarn.  And they are going to be nice and warm!  So this weekend I will dye some more yarn (I may even get enough done that I can sell some this time) and cast on another pair.

I finished the Beach Street Knitting Club. It was good.  Not one of my favorites.  I'm reading Summer House by Nancy Thayer and enjoying it.  I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of the summer.  Y'all know how slow I read...

So what are you knitting and reading these days?  Please share over at Ginny's

Love the color on those socks. I have to try and knit shorter socks one of these days, maybe anklets. I just finished The Pearl by Steinbeck and I'm trying desperately to finish another pair of socks.

That yarn color just demands attention. Really beautiful by the beach.

I'm planning some DK socks next - the idea of such a quick project really appeals... :)

I am slow in knitting and reading as well. I intended to read Beach Street Knitting Club too, I hope I will have the time soon. I love your socks and you were super fast with them :)
