Yarnalong, May 2018

Hi friends!  Happy Wednesday! Happy May!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Just popping in with a very quick Yarnalong post.  I know things have been on the quieter side around here — but I’m still here (just a bit snowed under with PhD revisions).

Knitting: The body of my Incunabula, knit in beautiful Dodgson Wood Castlemilk Moorit/BFL, is about on 12 row repeat short of being done (!).  And I’ve officially begun Chart C of my Mahy Shawl, knit in Northern Yarn Lonk Lace.  Both patterns are by Karie Westermann, and I’ve been enjoying them immensely.  Easy to follow and clear, interesting … can’t ask for much more! I’m hoping to have both of these projects done before the month is out.  I’ve also got some socks in very active WIP rotation, but I’ll save those for tomorrow’s monthly sock update!

Reading: I’ve started two books since last month.  I’m slowly reading Peter Carey’s The History of the Kelly Gang and really enjoying it.  It moves along at a clip, so I’ve been reading it in bursts when I’m not too sleepy in the evenings.  It’s been awhile since I’ve read any historical fiction, and I’m really enjoying it.  And I’m also very slowly reading Craeft by Alexander Langlands.  Mr. N and I have actually been reading this together, which has been a lot of fun.  I already have a lot of thoughts about the book, but because I’m not that far in, I think I’ll wait to share them in case they change when I’ve read a bit more.  But it’s a very engaging, well-researched and thought-provoking book.

Head over to the original Yarnalong post to see what people around the world are making and reading — and I’ll be back tomorrow with sock talk!

Hope your week’s going well!

  1. Hey Katherine! Just popping over from the Yarn Along — beautiful knitting! Love the colors and patterns you’ve chosen. That shawl pattern (in a world of a zillion beautiful shawl patterns) is particularly lovely.

    The Alexander Langland book looks intriguing! I’ve just found that our library system has a copy (yay!), so I’ve put it on hold.

    Cheers,
    Shannon
