yarn along - a finished scarf and back to the wip's



yesterday i finished my grey loop shawl. i had made the same last year for a friend, (i didn't follow a pattern for this one, just cast on 14 stitches and went on in stockinette stitch, which intentionally lets the ends curl. later i sewed both ends together).
 and i don't know yet if i will keep this one or not. it's really warm, chunky merino yarn and the loop fits around my neck three times for outdoor wear. i still have 4 skeins of that yarn left, and we are planning a giveaway to celebrate a milestone in etsy sales soon, so look out for that!

yes, i got carried away with a few photoshop brushes on that photo (taken by my 5yo little man. thank you, spencer!). i really wanted to give the photo a wintry feel despite of all the wet grey surrounding it ;)

i am wearing my first shalom, handknit mitts and a handmade jersey beanie.

my reading - you might have guessed - is still the same. Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore but i am quite far in the book by now and can say that it is a really good read! i'm sure i'll finish it by the weekend. which is good because i have a stack of books i am planning to read during the holiday break. 

also pictured is my Mairéad hat of which you can see the pattern a bit. i hope the yarn lasts for this one otherwise i will have to get creative.

what are you knitting and reading this week? looking forward to catching up! joining ginny of small things.
