Yarn Along time, Yay! This Saturday I will be subbing in, singing at a local church and the choir director let us know that we could wear black with a festive sweater if we had one. I realized that I had only a little work to do on this sweater (that I started on July 26th, if the Ravelry page is to be believed) and what's more festive than a bunch of red cables?
I had work knitting to do in the mean-time so it's been neglected in a bag waiting for its turn.
I brought it along to early Christmas with the in laws and was able to finish up a sleeve and start assembly this weekend.
I'll be excited to wear it at last!
The book is Rilla of Ingleside, the 8th and final installment of the Anne of Green Gables series.
I don't know what number of times I have read this particular of L.M. Montgomery's books, but it's more than a couple.
It's a fascinating look at the day-to-day lives of a Canadian family during World War I.
The domestic details are what I find most interesting. There are descriptions of hand-sewing hems on sheets, and knitting socks for the boys at the front, along with organizing Red Cross groups and raising money for the war effort.
I just can't get enough of L.M.'s first-hand look at this troubled time.
What's on your needles this week?
