Yarn Along 5 - 27

 I spent today with my oldest daughter, going out to lunch and then she took me to a yarn shop that she had taken notice of and thought I would like to go check out. 
I couldn't resist coming home with a new project 

Love the look of this scarf and the yarn is a cashmere, merino and nylon blend, the feel and drape is wonderful.
And they had this vest on display which I also love. 
It's a free pattern on raverly

sideways garter vest

But for now I'm working those facial pads and spa washcloths 

I have done very little reading on my Kindle. I have been reading Far from the Madding Crowd. Haven't made it very far, so I don't have any opinion yet.

Far From the Madding Crowd (1874) is Thomas Hardy's fourth novel and his first major literary success. It originally appeared anonymously as a monthly serial in Cornhill Magazine, where it gained a wide readership. Critical notices were plentiful and mostly positive. Hardy revised the text extensively for the 1895 edition and made further changes for the 1901 edition

  1. I love the vest pattern, a stunning garment ready for the Autumn.

  2. I think so too. The yarn they used was worst weight and was so soft to the feel. I think it was 100% merino

  3. That scarf in that yarn will be beautiful.

  4. I like the that scarf pattern. Is the yarn you picked green or is it teal?

  5. Ginny's YAlong posts are great! nice to meet you! lovely projects! it's so nice to be able to create beautiful things!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
