Yarn Along: Lark Rise...



I began knitting my Tea Leaves Cardigan on March 1st (in Madelinetosh Vintage Yarn in the colorway Rainwater)!  It's coming along nicely (even though I did frog it once because I didn't like how some of the stitches were coming out).  I hope to be done with the yoke this week, but I am already shocked at how slow-going a sweater for an adult (and a pretty big one at that!) is going.  Oh well!  Maybe my sister is right...  I need to have a few projects on the needles at all times!

I am now reading Lark Rise to Candleford.  I must admit that I am watching more television and movies than usual because we give up watching things during Great Lent (which begins on March 18th for us).  I often watch something while I knit, and I wonder if reading will take precedence during Great Lent and then my knitting will fall by the wayside a bit.  We shall see!  I am hoping to be able to finish my sweater by the end of March!

I didn't realize there was a book! The television show has been recommended to me, I wonder if I should read the book first? I love the color of your tea leaves, can't wait to see how it turns out!

I am so for more than 1 project on the go!!! I have 3 scarves and 1 dish cloth going... soon I will like to start on a blanket, but may need different needles...

What about audio books while you knit?

Loving the sweater you are making! always hard to frog things but one step (or stitch!) at a time... :)

Hi Lydia! There is a show and it is really good! I have watched the first three episodes and then got the book.

I just picked up that book not long ago! After watching most of the series. I am looking forward to it.

Yeah, I'm finding my own sweater is slow going. Hence, the cast on for another project last night. ;-)
