Yarn Along

Joining Ginny at Small Things again this week.

Still knitting this capelet. The chart is fairly easy to remember for the row (you repeat the charted row x number of times, if that makes sense) but I seem to zone out to whatever we're watching and later find that I've totally forgotten one increase in all but the first repeat. Oops. So I've learned a lot about un-knitting. Er. Fixing my mistakes - however you want to term it. What it comes down to is that there are imperfections, but also much love knitted into this fabric.

The book is The Thorn and The Blossom by Theodora Goss. I received it through LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program. I must say that as an ex-bookbinder, it tickled me to have an accordion bound novel. It made one-handed reading a bit dangerous, but the story was worth it (I finished it in several interrupted hours). Next up is The Green Man by Michael Bedard. There's no picture because it came in the mail after I'd already taken this photograph. It's also from the LT's ER program and I'm excited to start it (uncorrected proof though it may be).


  1. What a lovely book, I will be adding it to my "to read" list, thank you for the recommendation.
    Your caplet is looking wonderful. I really like the color you chose!
    Have a great week

  2. oh, I just ripped out a whole project because I got distracted and missed some the color of your caplet!!

  3. What a charming little cape -- pretty color just right for a little wood nymph I'd think ;). And the cover of your book is lovely as well - must hop over to Amazon & check it out.

  4. I've done plenty of un-knitting myself lately. Hope next week brings smoother knitting for you!

  5. I hate when I forget to do increases, your knitting is still quite beautiful! One handed reading in bed is dangerous for me :) in I lay on my back!!!

  6. I just spent an hour unknitting on my hat so I feel your pain! :)

  7. Oh the caplet is toooo sweet! I need something like that for me---- clothes are not fitting well around my hugehugehuge belly these days baby number 4 can't come soon enough ;)

    I lovelovelove your blog by the way, I very much enjoy my visits here ;)

    Take care!
