Yarn Along

Happy Wednesday everyone. Here it is wet and foggy this morning. I hope you have some sunshine wherever you are. Time to join with Ginny for another yarn along.

After I finished my last shawl I cast on the next one. The pattern is called "Simply Hilary" and once you get into it it is pretty easy. I had to get used to increase the stitches by making a new stitch rather than doing a yarn over as in many other patterns. The yarn is 'I Love this Wool' from Hobby Lobby. I am still chewing through 'Under the Tuscan Sun' I just cannot warm up to this book. It looks like whoever owned it before me gave up on it just a little bit further in than I am now. I found an airline ticket stub that was used as a bookmark (why does nobody ever use hundred dollar notes for bookmarks and then forget them? ;-) ).


Have a great day everyone!

Lovely shawl pattern, and I like your way of doing the increasing :)

I found a £5 note in a book once, unfortunately it was a note that had gone out of circulation many years previously!

Hooray for learning new techniques and the color is so pretty Maria.
I have never found any money either. What is wrong with people leaving useless items in books?! :)
Have a lovely yarn along day.

It was foggy here in RI this morning too so don't feel bad. The sun is shining now though. Very pretty yarn for that shawl!

Oh goodness, what a depressing thought - to think someone gave up on the book before you! Hmm, maybe it's time to pick up something more fun?

I've never found any money in a book either. Admittedly until now, I hadn't thought I would!
