Yarn Along

I just discovered this "along", and thought I would take part. Ginny, over at Small Things is hosting the yarn along, and you still have time to take part as well. Click the title of her blog to check it out. She's offering a skein of yarn as a prize!

So, for the yarn along, we have to post a photo of our current knitting project and book that we are reading. Here is mine:


The knitting project is a hat I am currently working on (designing it myself...or attempting to). I'm using Patons Classic Wool Merino in the Royal Purple colourway. I hope, if it turns out (might have to do another one just to make sure the pattern works) I just may share the pattern.

The book I'm currently reading, as you can see, is Someone to Blame by C. S. Lakin. Click the name of the book to read a review.

Scroll down for the first post I made today, showcasing my latest knitted FOs I've made since the beginning of 2011.

The color of your yarn is just beautiful. Can't wait to see the finished hat...

Thank's! Purple is my favourite colour, and I think I originally got the yarn (have 2 skeins) to make myself a scarf. However, my new winter coat is red and it doesn't match. So, thought I'd use it to make a hat or two, probably to donate.

I've been so stuck on purple yarn knitting lately, so I just love your project! I'm venturing into knitting on the fly as well. It's been so gratifying so far!

Hi Gretchen, thanks for your comment! Always love hearing about others' joy of knitting in purple!

I'll stop by your blog for a visit in return!

Your lovely purple yarn matches the background of your blog so well! It reminds me of stained glass...

I never even noticed the yarn matching the blog - love when that works out, lol!

Thanks for stopping by!
