Yarn-along ...thanks, Ginny!

As always ... I agree with Jennifer ... any reason to write about knitting and reading!  Ginny, over at small things is doing a yarn-along where you have to post a pic of what's on your needles and what you're reading ...

So, here is mine:
The books:  read-aloud to my little cherubs is The Island of Mad Scientists by Howard Whitehouse (a wonderful, fun book, the third in the series  about Emmaline and Rubberbones) while I'm currently reading Why He is a Saint: The Life and Faith of Pope John Paul II and the Case for Canonization by Slawomir Oder (which I've just started but am finding surprisingly readable by a Polish priest). 

On my needles is my first design for Spring Gate Farm, a cashmere goat ranch nearby -- this is a gorgeous fingering-weight pure cashmere in brown ... perfect for the man's scarf design I'm working on (I'll keep you all posted for when I get this design up for purchase). 

Thanks, Ginny for such a fun reason to write about knitting.  [BTW, I believe we're nearby neighbors with many mutual friends! Maybe one of these days I'll get to meet you in person.]


  1. That yarn looks so soft, beautiful scarf as well! I'm always in awe of people who write their own patterns.

  2. That is so luscious! What beautiful yarn! And your pattern looks equally enticing!

  3. We do need to meet Mary! I don't get out very often :)
    Your scarf is beautiful!

  4. What a beautiful scarf! I looks so soft and warm!
