I wanted to quickly check-in with my friends who participate in Ginny's Yarn Along. With all the illness in the house, you would think great progress would have been made on the knitting. Nope! I am still plugging along on the Bedford sweater body and the Holden shawl. The sweater seems to eat a whole bunch of yarn, and I have a sick feeling that I may not have enough. I am trying to ignore that feeling and forge ahead. The sleeves are reverse stockinette, so I keep telling myself that I should be fine. We shall see.
The shawl is moving ahead slowly as well. I am just starting the pattern portion of the shawl. I haven't used a lot of yarn so far for this project, since Wollmeise has very generous skeins. I am hoping to make the shawl a bit bigger, and I think it will happen.
There is also no great progress to report in my reading. I am still reading The Night Circus with a little Yarn Harlot thrown in for quick bedtime reading. A generally slow week here for sure. With my time divided between the two projects as well as reading, progress is not easily forthcoming. I even had to throw in a little sewing to satisfy my urge for a quick result! Hopefully next week will find us all well and with more to share.
