Yarn Along

Happy Wednesday and Happy Yarn Along Day! Linking up with Ginny from Small Things :)


I'm almost ready to call this scarf done, and I'm quite excited! I have a lot of future projects lined up, and I recently received some new yarn as a gift from David, and my knitting queue is only getting progressively longer the more that I peruse Ravelry and KnitPicks.

I recently finished reading Persuasion which, at the time, was the only Austen novel that I hadn't read. It also now turns out that it's my favorite Austen novel. It was so good. Can we please talk about what a hunk Frederick Wentworth is?

  1. Good luck in finishing your scarf. It is quite pretty. I love the two-tone and the pattern.

  2. I love the texture and colors of your scarf.

    Oh, yes! I totally agree with you with respect to Persuasion. Pride and Prejudice will always be my favorite Jane Austen novel, but Persuasion is a very close second. I, too, think Frederick is a hunk! ;-)

    1. The tweed gives it such a cozy look, doesn't it? And yes, you can never go wrong with a little Austen on your bedside table :)

  4. Have you read Lady Susan, The Watsons, or Sanditon? They're the Austens that generally get missed, and I recommend them! And hurrah for David buying you yarn!

    1. Thanks, Gina! I wanted something to break up the monotony of the grey and the green was just perfect for the job :)

  8. As someone else said---love the texture and colors of the scarf. And Capt. Wentworth is To Die For! My favorite book, and I love the movie, too.

    1. Thank you! I adapted the pattern from another scarf that I'd seen, but I'll share the original inspiration.

      I have not yet seen the movie, but I'll move it to the top of my to-watch list now!
