Yarn along.

Sharing with Ginny's Yarn Along posts again.
Knitting and reading, my two best ways to know me.

So after finishing the Shalom I  thought I would have to share the scarf of little progress, or the stalled Granny Stripe mega blanket. So I collected the project bags and prepared to share. The Granny stripe has, as I said, stalled completed and is exactly as last shown so I won't bore you with you a photo of that. The scarf is looking like this:
It's looking a little longer - right?

And then I opened up another bag and found this:

Green lacy socks, on the needles forever. And no, I'm not part exing my old chair for £250, it's the back of the pattern magazine, hmm, advertisement targetting?

Before opening the final bag and remembering this:

A garter stitch something for Heather.
So I did have something to share after all!

Reading, well, still The Green Buddha, and still only a few pages in. Oliver Twist is still in the kitchen being read a page or two at a time, and another booke opened is Anger, something I feel the need to return to once again just recently. This is one of those books that needs to be kept, and remembered, when the dark clouds show, wise words always needed and to be remembered.

So what are you making and reading this lovely wednesday morning?

Nice scarf. Great colour and texture. Funnily enough, I've also opened bags today and found projects. An odd sock, one slipper, Granny squares...you know how it is!

You have some great projects on the needles. I love the yarn in your last bag, very pretty! And so is the green sock yarn.

Lots of lovelies to admire here - Gorgeous pink scarf and pretty green socks. Intrigued about what Heather will be getting in that pretty yarn.
Enjoy.

Not only WIPs but forgotten WIPs? I am afraid of what I might unearth if I should decide to tidy the cupboard where I dump this sort of stuff.

What a yarn feast your pictures are this week! I love the green of the socks especially! The scarf looks lovely too though.
