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!
After finishing Citron the other day (still unblocked, unfortunately), I picked up a WIP that had been languishing since the holidays: my Ribbed Lace Bolero. It turns out the only reason I had put it aside was because I needed to measure the length and see if the lace portion was long enough, and apparently that was just enough effort to put me off it completely. Well, that and I don’t like how the lace is unbalanced, which creates a biased fabric. I’m going to finish it and see if I can block some of the bias out, since it is a fairly quick knit and I wouldn’t mind re-knitting it if I had to. I seem to have a green trend going on in my knitting these days (the Bolero is a much brighter, sunnier green than it appears in this photo), probably because I’m missing the green outdoors! Everything here is blue and white and brown at the moment. I’m loving all the snow and skating on the canal but I’ll be wishing for spring any day now.
Another library book this week, Wildly Affordable Organic. The language is a little over-the-top, and the cost saving claims are based on American prices rather than Canadian ones, so I’m a little skeptical. I’m hoping the recipes will at least give me some ideas for the spring, when we actually have local, fresh produce again! She does have a whole winter section as well, so maybe that will tide me over until then.
