Yarn along.

Thank you for popping by as I join in with Ginny yet again for the Wednesday yarn along.

 
On the needles - the Hitchhiker scarf in King Cole Riot DK. A yule gift for Jen, who admired the pattern so much when I mentioned I was making it for Helen - sneaky mama ;)
Reading - The Green Buddha. Only just opened up this book despite having it for several months/a year plus now. Looking forward to offering an opinion on this book soon. f the knitting doesn't carry away my reading time, the Hitchhiker is very addictive you know.

Well now, that was a quick post! Mind, I've posted an awful lot lately so do have a scroll down to see much much more of what I've been up!
Thank you for visiting and hope to see you back soon :)

That looks like an interesting pattern!

Oh and as far as the comment you left on my blog, I would strongly recommend getting a hold of the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Rules!.

Best of her books.
