It's Wednesday - so it's time to join Ginny's Yarn Along.
The sweater is coming along nicely. Since my yarn isn't quite as thick as the yarn they suggested, I had to add a couple rows in before I tied off the arms. Don't want the arms too high or too tight. Fortunately I have a dress form in the basement which is basically my size - so I just whipped it on her and made some measurements. I've worked through the decreases in the torso and now it's time to make some mild increases to create a bit of a bell shape before I do a seed stitch finish. Then there are the sleeves and the cowl - so there's still a ways to go. But I have to admit that I'm psyched for having gotten this far in a week!
The yarn I'm using is Nashua Handknits: Julia in color: Squash. It's lovely.
I finished The Night Circus and I LOVED IT! I did a review of it on Goodreads. If you're a member of Goodreads I think you can view it here. (I think.) If not, let's just say, if you like magic, romance, mystery, and you're alright with time jumps - you'll probably like The Night Circus.
Right now I am reading Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Prince. I'm literally not even through the first chapter yet, so I can't say much one way or another. But I loved the first in the series: Clockwork Angel.
I've also been delving into abstract art, so I've been checking out Painting Abstract by Rolina van Vliet. I should sit down and read it, but what I usually do is look through the pictures, get a tip or two, and start painting.
Happy Wednesday everyone! (Oh, I tried to add a Yarn Along button but Blogger wasn't being cooperative. I'll try again later when I'm not trying to feed a boy breakfast and usher him off to school.)
