Yarn Along

Happy Yarn Along Day

I finished reading I Am Pilgrim and it was incredible. Terrifying and satisfying all at the same time.
I had many moments that I had to walk away and let my heart calm down. The book was our book club pick for the month and a few girls had read ahead of me. Convincing me to continue and finish, I pressed on and devoured the end of the book. To say I'm glad I finished is an understatement! The book is not for everyone. But if you are looking for an intense spy, fast paced, murder mystery genre book, I would recommend it. But be will scare the you know what out of you!!!

Ok onto knitting.......
I read more than knitted this week so I don't have much to show.
I picked up this half done, gray cardigan that has been sitting lifeless on my shelve for a year now.
I am determined to get it finished with plans to wear it to Rhinebeck. It's a second go-around for this sweater and myself. I knitted this pattern up a few years ago. It was my first ever sweater and I really love it. But it had 3/4 sleeves and buttons that stopped half way down. I really wanted a sweater with long sleeves and button band all the way down the front. So I am adjusting it for myself.

 (here is the original green sweater...and I'm not pregnant. This photo was taken when I was pregnant with Chase. Awwww....I miss that. Not enough to have another one. But I really do enjoy being pregnant)

And this isn't really a new knit, but a recently finished and finally photographed knit I thought I would share. It's the Follow Your Arrow Mystery KAL. I put this down for a long time too. I need to stop doing that. I forgot where I was and didn't finish all the clues. I left off clue 5. I am very happy with it despite the one less clue. I wore it this morning and Garrett took a quick photo with my phone.

Yarn is Madelintosh tosh merino Light

Ok... that's it for today! Happy Knitting and Reading!
