Yarn Along

The days fly by!
We had a few warmer days this weekend and it was wonderful. My bones warmed up and hurt less.
But winter has returned with freezing temps. Really wish my cardigan I was knitting was farther along so I could wear it right now!!!

I am knitting the Channel Cardigan out of the latest Jared Flood patterns.
I picked up the new John Grisham novel, Sycamore Row.
The character of the lawyer from Time to Kill is in this book as well.
So picturing Matthew McCoughauney while I read isn't too hard to handle :)

On my sweater...
I finished up both sleeves and they're the same length. Phew!
My gauge was very off on my samples so I ended up with a size 5. The yarn definitely would be much happier on a 7 or 9 so it's hard on my hands. The yarn is worsted by Beaverslide but I have found it much bulkier than a worsted. DK would have been a better choice.
Oh well.....I'll keep knitting away.

We have a new line of yarn in the farm store and it's sooo exciting!
I'm knitting up a sample hat with some of the alpaca duo tweed yarn.
It's so soft and I'm loving the texture. The hat is worked around and then sewn up at the end.
It's a fun hat. I just made two other ones this past week.
Ravlery: Cool Wool

The farm will be OPEN today, Wednesday February 26th from 11-4.
Swing by and say hi!

Joining with Ginny for the weekly yarn along.

-Happy Knitting!


  1. Your cardigan is going to be amazing Leanne, what a great color and of course Jared Flood patterns are the best :)
    Wish I lived closer so I could stop by the farm, maybe one day.

  2. A hand knit cardigan would be lovely right about now. I like that new yarn - it has a real nice halo. Happy knitting!

  3. beautiful projects and that yarn looks so yummy!!

  4. Love the look of the new yarn. Your cardigan is quite pretty.
