Summertime Knitting

As I mention every summer, knitting doesn't slow down for me just because the weather has warmed up. Yes, a lap full of wool isn't ideal, but honestly, I don't mind. I have been working on this shawl/wrap/scarf since the spring. It's been a slow going knit that has taken me through many baseball games, nights on the couch, sitting next to campfires and more recently, a morning on the beach. Knitted with yarn that I bought at Maryland Sheep & Wool from 2015 and 2016, cormo yarn from Rhinebeck and a cotton/alpaca blend from my local LYS.

The pattern name is Riverflow by Annie Rowden.
This is the third pattern I have knitted by her and I love her way of thinking. Nothing too hard but keeps your interest. My previous knits of her patterns can be seen here and here.

On the reading front...I just finished The Girls by Emma Cline. 
I flew through it and couldn't put it down. A really crazy, good read and I recommend it.

I just started reading, All the Light You Cannot See. It's my son's high school summer reading book so I thought I would read it too.

That's it for today. Have a great Wednesday! 

Joining in with Ginny for the Yarn Along. What are you reading and knitting?
