Yarn Along - Oct 12

From small things:
~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? ~
I gave up on "I Think I Love You". It is an infrequent occurrence that I do not finish a book (I know I didn't make it through "Profiles in Courage" or "The Killer Angels"). As it was an e-book "borrowed" from the library, I had a time limit on the books availability and I just din't finish in time. I could "take out" the book again, but I was not that invested in it. I started a new book, Tattoos on the Heart - it is an easy read, mostly anecdotes and that makes it easy to pick up and put down. I do not want to put it down though as the stories are engaging and there is plenty of food for thought.

I am working on knitting a Wishy Washy Fishy Tawashi for my "downstream" swap pal. I was happy to see this in my pal's queue, as I have also had it queued for a while. And that's been it, along with the hexipuffs. My knitting seems to have slowed down a bit, though with the influx of minis for the hexipuffs that helps me to drool over new yarns. And Rhinebeck is this weekend, so I am setting a very loose shopping list for myself. I always find when I actually have a list I never find what I am looking for. Last year I went in without a list but good knowledge of my stash and still didn't find anything I adored. This year, with my loose list, I am hoping to find a few new to me items and maybe splurge on a treat for me.

Hi -

I just found your blog after a random cruise through ravelry - I'm glad to find a fellow nutmegger/science nerd/knitter all in one.

I've been listening to knitting podcasts - Knitting Pipeline and Knit 1 Geek 2 are my current favorites but there is a new one called 2 Knit Lit Chiks which is kind of fun too - combines reading and knitting in one!

I'm trying to knit a shrug sweater for my daughter but I realized that I may be way off in the gauge, and it might not be fixable. :-( {heavy sigh}. I'm not that far into it but still, I love the yarn and I would have wanted it to work.
