I skipped a couple of Yarn Along's because I had nothing to show for my recent knitting time. I realized part way through the fleurette project that I was reading the pattern incorrectly so a whole lot of ripping and recounting has been going on. I didn't bother with a picture because it looks about the same as the last time I posted it.
In my desire for a faster project, I started this scarf...
It's the first time I've ever knit with sock yarn. Don't remember how it ended up in my stash. Not the softest yarn in the world but I like the way it looks. Wasn't as fast as I thought it would be either. The pattern refused to stick in my head and it's only a 2 row repeat. Ugh! After some major ripping out sessions, I am starting to see progress.
In a sudden turn of mad woman knitting frenzy, I did get this little shrug finished last week for Marianna to wear on Easter. (Started Palm Sunday; finished Good Friday!)
The original pattern is a full length sweater but I didn't have the time or patience (probably not enough yarn either!) so made a few modifications. I can't say enough about Baby Bunny yarn. It is just so soft and sweet. Kind of reminds me of the little girl who this was made for! I hope she will get some use out of it this summer, too.
As for reading material, I have been SLOWLY working my way through the Moviegoer by Walker Percy. I thought his writing was similar to Flannery O'Connor's and her stories fascinate me, so I jumped into this novel with anticipation. This post has helped me get a grasp of the author's life. Now I'm hoping to get more out of the storyline. Maybe I'll have a better opinion of it by next week.
Happy Yarn Along with Ginny!
