Yarn Along

I've been reading this book while working out at the gym. I have it downloaded onto my Kindle Fire, and can prop it up on the treadmill, elliptical, or recumbent bike and read to my heart's content. :)

My New England Shawl is coming along nicely. It sure takes a while to knit up fingering weight yarn, but I like it! I know I already mentioned it, but I'm probably going to add some repeats of the stitch pattern to make it a bigger. I'm about 70 percent through the written pattern, as is. I want it a bit bigger, and again, as already mentioned in a previous post, I have plenty of the Chroma yarn in that color.

It is gorgeous here today, hitting the low 60's, and I'm so happy to say my laundry lines are full! I washed out some blankets that needed a good washing and airing. I love the smell of sheets and blankets and towels and clothes that have dried outside. Smells like spring! I'm thinking a lot about our garden, too. Dale brought home some seeds last week. I think he is looking forward to garden season too.

Have a great day everyone!

Wow, the colors of that yarn are positively edible!

Your shawl is coming along beautifully. I love the colors. We are having a warm day as well, but still can't get to the laundry line for all the snow we got last week. Soon I hope.

Blessings, Elizabeth

Oooh, I'm jealous--laundry on the line! I never could get the hang of reading on a treadmill--wish I could!
