Yarn Along: Goodale Cardigan

I'm plugging away on my Goodale Cardigan - plug, plug, plug.  I'm almost done with the yoke and MAN am I glad.  Those front fold overs and going around the shoulders makes for a very looooong row.  But so far so good.  The pattern is on Ravelry here.

I'm reading A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD by Jennifer Egan.  Interesting.  It's more like short stories about people in each others social circles than a straight-through narrative.  I think it's all supposed to tie together in the end.  I dunno.  It's entertaining enough but I'm not completely hooked yet.

I'm also reading I AM A GENIUS OF UNSPEAKABLE EVIL AND I WANT TO BE YOUR CLASS PRESIDENT by Josh Lieb with my 9-yr-old son.  That one is hilarious!

Today is drizzly and my eyes are begging for a nice,long nap - and it's only 8:00 am!!!  I think I need caffine!

Thanks Amanda!
My son is 9 but the character in the book is twelve or thirteen, so it can work for middle grade kids as well.

I admit, I am not a fan of the long, endless rows. It is possibly why my cardigan is still on the needles LOL
But yours is looking lovely!
