Yarn Along

Yarn Along!
I missed a couple of weeks there, but I did finish a project. The pirate sweater has both sleeves, and has even made a successful debut at school.
The Younger would like to be a pirate for Halloween, and I hope I can convince him to wear the sweater. I'll feel better about him being out in the cold if he's bundled...
The book and the yarn there are my next project. I have the materials to make the Chickadee Sweater from Little Red Knits.
I have had my eye on that book for some time, and I finally decided to make a model for the yarn store from it, mostly to justify the cost of the book. I'm counting that as my current book too, because it has so much fascinating information about sizing and fit. It's really a great read!
What are you knitting and reading lately?
Go visit Ginny for more knitting inspiration!
