Wednesday yarn along

It’s been awhile since I’ve joined in with Ginny’s yarn along, and now that I can upload photos again it’s a nice chance to reconnect with other knitters/crocheters/readers.

The Umaro blanket that I’m knitting for my mother is coming along – I need to knit about 25 more inches and then it’s done done DONE!


I’m reading the Magician King by Lev Grossman – a very adult sort of Harry Potter if I had to describe it and this is the second book in a trilogy. I’m enjoying it.

My Sampler Cove is coming along:


I’ve just put it away for now and my AAN coffee cup is back on the stretcher bars in hopes of a finish before Labour Day weekend.

Last week, I took the opportunity to take some photos of the loon who floats around the bay. He calls frequently and the answering call is a haunting echo – beautiful to hear and so evocative of our unique area of Canada.

  1. I knit Umaro last year and thought it would NEVER end!!! Yet, it’s one of my favorite blankets ever. I know you will be very pleased with yours when it’s finished!!!

    Your blanket is very pretty. I like the stitch pattern.

    What a beautiful blanket! I’ve crocheted numerous (huge) blankets but have yet to attempt a knitted one.

    I added your book to my “Want to Read” list. If it’s Harry Potter-ish there’s a high probability that I’ll enjoy it!

    Gorgeous scenery!

    I love your blanket!!! so pretty. I bet you are happy to be able to upload photos that would be exciting. I had troubles with editing photos but I think (?) I fixed it, for now.

    I am celebrating your stitching progress with you! Lovely projects! Thanks for the loon photo, too. As yet in my 65 years I have never seen or heard loons when I have been out and about, but I imagine I would enjoy the experience. xx
