Yarn Along


I have been noticing Pebble Beach on the blogs on Yarn Along Days and I knew I wanted to cast it on.  But what yarn to use?  Clearly I have a collection to choose from.


Then I remembered this beautiful gradient I got from my friend Chrystee at Play at Life and it was a match. It has been moving along quickly and as with any lace patterned project I cannot wait to block it.

Reading has been rather slow, but I am still listening to Outlander.  I watched the first episode Monday night and I like it.  I think I will wait to watch the rest until I finish the first book.

Linking up with Ginny.

Love it!!! I don't know how you would put this down, a beautiful pattern and any kind of colour changing yarn always draws me in. This will be absolutely beautiful

Have been reading the Outlander series for years. Loving the new show - so far very close to the book. Enjoy!

What wonderful yarn! I'm working on a project that I started 4 years ago... hoping this is the winter I wear it. I just want to wrap up in yours!
Keep 'reading'

Listening to Outlander? What a great idea! I always forget how much I love audio books, especially while knitting-I didn't know that one was available! Did you find it online?

I love your wool, so lovely. And your project bag is adorable.

The gradient is stunning. I love the owl project bag; too cute!

I have yet to knit with a gradient. When I'm at a fiber festival this year I might just dip my toes and see what I find! Lovely as always, donna!

What a beautiful yarn. I am looking forward to seeing the finished shawl.

Looks like it will be gorgeous. No sidetracking though!

Love Leanne

I love how the gradient looks. I think color-changing yarns making knitting move much more quickly!

Love your yarn...and really love your basket!

Nat at Made in Home said...

I love that yarn, and I can see some gorgeous colours coming soon. I bet you cannot wait knitting them!

Cherish said...

Your shawl is absolutely stunning! I love knitting or crocheting with gradient yarn: it's always a great surprise to see just what kind of life that yarn will take on!

My husband is thinking about starting Outlander, but he's wondering if he should read the book first or just dive into the show. Any suggestions?

This will be just a beauty! Love the pebbles and the yarn!
