Yarn Along

What I’m knitting, and what I’m reading

Knitting a shell and reading West From Home

It’s been a while, but I’m picking up my knitting needles again. The crisp weather and a weekend camping trip inspired me to start again. I’m picking up where I left off in The Chicks with Sticks Guide to Knitting, beginning my very first sweater (just a shell to start with). I’m loving Lion Brand’s Amazing yarn, it’s a soft mix of wool and acrylic and the colors are just beautiful.

I’m also reading West From Home, letters from Laura Ingalls Wilder to her husband, Almanzo, during a trip to San Francisco to visit her daughter and see the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915.

PS. I fell in love with knitting by lantern light in front of the campfire this weekend…

    Knitting by the campfire sounds wonderful! I love campfires, just not so keen on camping 😉

    Pretty yarn! I love lamplight and candlelight of any kind and knitting by it makes me think of the generations of women who have knit by candlelight or lamplight in the evenings.

    Love the color of your yarn! I love Laura Ingalls Wilder, but I’ve never read that book–I’ll have to put it on my to-read list. Knitting by lantern light while camping sounds lovely!
