I'm joining in Ginny's Yarn Along this week.
I spent part of last weekend working on my Derry Raglan pullover and am excited to say that I only have two inches left to knit on the second sleeve! Once that's done, I'll pick up along the neckline and finish the collar. This has been a terrific project, and I'm looking forward to having a new sweater to show off next week.
In the meantime, I've been steadily adding hexipuffs to my Skyfall quilt. I'm now up to eight hexipuffs (that's roughly two per week), but I'd like to try and knit a few more within a month to reach that final goal.
I'm nearing the end of Salvage the Bones and am a bit in awe of how the book is constructed. Told over the course of 12 days, this story of four brothers and one sister in the days just prior to Hurricane Katrina is full of tough moments and tender love.
And now, I'm happy to announce the winner of last week's Winning Wednesday giveaway:
This week, I'm giving away two balls of Crystal Palace Biwa yarn, one in cream and one in dusty rose. Each is 88 yards of dk mercerized pearl cotton, perfect for dish/wash cloths. To win, let me know what is your favorite dish/washcloth pattern. Good luck!
