Yarn Along: Its a Sleeve!

~ 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? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

It may not look like there has been a ton of progress since last week's photo of the baby sweater, but that 2" little sleeve represents my first time picking up stitches and my first ever sleeve!  Yes, if you peer too closely, you'll notice the slight gap at the armpit join, but I am hoping I can tighten it up a bit when I do the finishing.

Meanwhile, I've started Blessed Are the Cheesemakers by Sarah-Kate Lynch and Blue Asylum by Kathy Hepinstall, for separate book clubs.  Both are delightful so far (although very different - modern rural Irish cheese farm vs. Civil War-era Florida insane asylum) and I'm looking forward to reviewing them when I've finished.


For more knitting and reading delight, come join me at Small Things!

  1. very cute! I have yet to even knit a big sweater let alone a small one

  2. Cute cardi! Lucky baby. :) I still find picking up stitches scary, myself... xx

  3. Such a lovely little cardi. Congrats on the new knitting skills, I too have had some success in the new skill department this week.

    Hope you had a lovely day.

  4. I think I'd have to go with the Cheesemaker book--particularly since our high school team is named, in fact, The Cheesemakers. :)

    That sweater is convincing me that I MUST knit a Coffee Bean Cardigan! Love the yellow and white!
