Yarn Along

Yarn Along day! I have missed joining in with the great folks out here.
I have been knitting a sweater from Coastal Knits - The Rocky Coast Cardigan. (you can see it there on the cover) the yarn is Peruvia from Berocco, and I am enjoying the knit. Coastal Knits is really fun to read as well. The authors, Hannah Fettig and Alana Dakos write lovely essays about their neighborhoods and favorite places along their coasts.
My daughter and I are reading The Black Stallion for our Mother/Daughter book club. I was a big fan of the movie when I was young, but I haven't seen it for many years. The book is really exciting! Lots of action, the characters are well-formed, the story is interesting. I would totally recommend it.
Happy Yarn Along, and Happy New Year!


  1. love the color of your sweater, also a great pattern! I remember reading black beauty as a pre teen and loved it immensely :)

  2. Love the color and pattern of that sweater! It seems so cozy mid winter!

  3. It is a beautiful pattern - great job! I have wanted to check out Coastal Knits for a while now - thanks for the reminder!
