Every Wednesday I participate in “Yarn Along”, a link-up run by Ginny over at Small Things where we share what we are knitting and reading this week. Head over to the Small Things blog to see what other bloggers are sharing!
Somewhat of a simple Yarn Along post today as I am between books at the moment. This rarely happens but I finished Don’t Make Me Think this morning over breakfast and I haven’t had time to pick up another book yet. That was the last of the library pile, too, so I’m finally going to be able to dive back into my to-read pile. It is a rather unruly pile of books!
I have many little knitting projects ongoing right now, most of which need finishing rather than actual knitting. Instead of working on those last night I decided to cast on something new: the Caeles top. I finished the gauge swatch and washed it earlier this week, and my gauge went from 21 stitches over 4″ to 18 stitches over 4″ just from washing! Luckily this is just the gauge I needed, although my row gauge is a bit off which is slightly worrying. However, I’m marching ahead with the top and we will have to see how it goes. The whole gauge thing is just a crapshoot anyway!
