Yarn Along

On my trip to Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival this past May, I stumbled upon a little booth. The colors, logo, display and overall feel of the space drew me in. The company was Boho Chic Fiber Co.
I picked up these two skeins in her Wild DK yarn, colors Ocean and Driftwood.

I didn't have a project in mind for the yarn. So when this cowl by Purl Soho popped up the other day on instagram, I thought it would be perfect for my BohoChic yarn.

Casted on and away we go....

(the yarn on the far right is from Sweitzers Fiber Mill, another favorite stop in at MS&W)

I am reading All the Light We Cannot See. It's my son's assigned reading for high school so I thought I would read it too. So far I'm enjoying it. I have a feeling he's going to be bored. Not much action in it for a 14 year boy!!!

Joining Ginny for the weekly Yarn Along. 
What are you reading and knitting? 
Hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous weather we are having today at the Jersey Shore!


  1. That yarn looks lovely, I am sure your cowl will be gorgeous.

  2. You can brioche? I am SO jealous. I have a cowl that's in time out. I'm fine until I get to the end of a round.
    I am one of the few people I know who didn't like that book. I don't see many teen boys liking it, either.

  3. let me know how you like it, i am a cowl expert...hehehehe

    pretty yarn, you always have a good eye for lovely yarn!! i miss you too. it's been a little hot for me to come by and this weekend we will be away. my "new" project is only "kinda" new, something i have knitted in the past. i did undo the gurney wrap i started with maggies yarn, i am going to save that yarn for the gurnesy triangle!!!

  4. Beautiful yarn choices! Brioche is lovely to knit and creates such a gorgeous fabric!

  5. All the Light You Cannot See is the required freshman book at our school! I wasn't that in to it but other people on the committee liked it. I think I've read much better Holocaust books but it is popular. Luckily there are 3 other books to choose from and I love all of them!
