Yarn Along: Goodale Cardigan
It's Wednesday, and I've started a new project! So I thought I'd join the gang at Ginny's Yarn Along.
First, the project. What you see here is about halfway through the yoke of the Goodale Cardigan available on Ravelry. When I chose this cardigan, I scanned through all the other knitters projects and was drawn to the red cardis. Since I'd just done the Whisper Cardigan in the blue/greens of Nebula, I thought I'd go with a good strong ruby color for this one. It's a little heavier weight, too, so it'll be a good sweater for fall.
Now, the book. I just finished Stolen by Lucy Christopher. Stolen is about a 16-yr-old British girl, Gemma, who is drugged and abducted while traveling with her parents abroad. She is taken deep into the outback by a 26-yr-old Australian man who had been watching her for 6 years. The book is written as a letter from Gemma to this man. It's pretty darn good! I don't want to give anything away, but I will say it's a real page turner as the tensions run very high and Gemma is constantly assessing her situation and her captor. I tore through it in less than 24 hours. LOVED it!
Happy knitting everyone!
