yarn along: on my needles and on my nightstand






last week i finished my Nordic Wind Shawl. i blocked it and wore it on the weekend already! i really love the size of it, it's just a pity the Létt Lopi yarn is quite rough. so i can't wear it around my neck, but it's great to keep the shoulders warm! i should have taken the photos of the finished shawl a day later, when it looked like this outside:



after the scratchy Lopi yarn it is such a treat to return to the soft soft Malabrigo Arroyo yarn with my Age of Brass and Steam. i think it will end up kerchief size so i will eventually wrap it around my neck but this yarn is perfect for that!

i finished Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore and i really liked it! i'm now reading a book from the children's library by Liz Kessler. i just started it yesterday and already find the story quite captivating!

joining ginny again this week. and what are you all knitting and reading???

Sylvia, your shawl is just beautiful. I'm sorry too that the yarn is rough, but I do hope you wear across your shoulders often, it deserves to be out and about, it's too pretty to pack away.

I really love the colors you picked out for your shawl. Works as either wintery frosty colors or beachy colors.
