Yarn Along

Joining Ginny for Yarn Along.

I have finally, finally finished my vest!
It is embarrassing to admit that it took me 4 months to knit it.
I know, that a couple of weeks ago I have promised to finished it in a week, but due to Olympics, supply of good books to read and other things, it took me longer. Excuses, excuses, excuses!

Zuzia tried it on first. When I saw that the length was good for her size I was afraid that I might never wear it myself! Yet it works well with jeans, and all together I like the finished product.
Now Zuzia  requested one for herself, in turquoise :)
As for reading I dove into "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini. Very, very good book about recent times in Afghanistan and lives of women living there.
My spiritual reading revolves around Scott Hahn. This time it is "Reasons to Believe".
With Lent beginning in exactly a week, I will be reading more of those.

I know that "trucking" does not belong in knitting or reading, unless it is a sweater with truck design( which is on my list to knit ), or truck theme books, (which we are reading every day anyway ), but my little man insisted on having a picture with most of his big trucks. Of course I couldn't say no:)



  1. Great work--all those cables and different stitches. Love it!

    1. Thank you! Maybe that's why it took me so long:)
