Yarn Along





It's time to join in with Ginny for the yarn along.....this week I cast on for a baby shrug for Hannah Grace. We are going to be heading to Florida next month for my brothers wedding and I wanted a little sweater for her to wear over her dress. I am using Plymouth Yarn Select Worsted Merino Superwash  in a soft pink tone and I have loved working with this yarn.....I'm also using my new knit picks circular needles....I broke down and got the whole set....so worth it!!! You can find the shrug pattern here.






I've been doing more knitting then reading lately but I did pick up this book I had gotten for my daughter to read. She loves Jane Austen and this author writes in the same manner and it looks like a fun easy read! There are 2 series and this is the first book in the second one....Miss Read~ Village School.

I hope your brother's wedding is in northern Florida, because there will be no need for that lovely shrug where I live in south Florida. Night time temperatures are barely below 80!

What a sweet pink cardigan. I'm sure she will look so sweet in it. Intrigued by your book. I love reading Jane Austen, so sounds like this would be a good one to try.
