Yarn along

I'm joining Ginny's yarn along today.

Knitting: a sweater for me. A not too baggy, but comfy and long sweater to go with leggings or skinny jeans. At least, that's the plan.
The first try was from a pattern I used before, but it turned out way too big (my fault: I thought using thicker yarn and bigger needles in size XS would work, but it didn't), so I frogged that.
This is the second try, winging my own pattern like I did with the purple and white sweater last year, but it seems a bit small. It does fit over my hips, so that's a good start, I guess.

Reading: I don't really feel up to any difficult reading lately, so I picked up a teenage favorite of mine. It's from a Dutch writer, written in the 1930's and I don't think it was ever translated, but I love it. It's 80 years old, but still very fun to read and actually quite relatable. I guess people didn't really change that much, despite television and internet.


So what are you knitting (making) and reading?

  1. Good luck with your second go 'round with this pattern! I've certainly been there before.
