a scalloped scarf again and some rhythm of family



i'm joining Ginny today. In her words:
Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs.

In the evenings, I'm reading paragraphs or pages (depending on my grade of tiredness) of Amanda Soule's new book, The Rhythm of Family. I love it very much, it's definitely my favourite of all her books and I also love the idea of re-reading passages of whatever month we are having.

After making one for simona, I am giving the scalloped spring scarf a second try, this time sticking to the pattern. I am also working on the sleeves of my Shalom - decided I want them long after all...

What are you reading/knitting?

I've read so many wonderful things about the Soules' book since starting my blog a few weeks ago (having never ever heard of them before) - your photo is the final straw - I'm going to have to see if I can get a hold of a copy.

Nice still life going on there ;)

I have the shalom bookmarked to try (among hundreds of other patterns!). That yarn is wonderfully variegated. What is it?

Swanski said...

I agree with the shalom having long sleeves. I would make it that way too. It looks beautiful!

Oh, I love grays and blues... Looks like this will be a very pretty scarf. The flower accenting the background is a nice addition to the photo.
