knit knit knit

I just cast on my cowl and I am already in love. Because it uses short row shaping, it's not going to be a mindless knit but because of the larger yarn, I am hoping it will at least be quick. The yarn is so delicate that the rough spots on my hands catch it, so I'll be going through the lotion and knitting with dishpan hands.

I'm back to reading The Bean Trees and I am happy that the two plot lines have finally converged. I had been scratching my head wondering where we were going. I finished The Tower, The Zoo and the Tortoise and I liked it. It was a happy-ending-book though good heavens, sometimes I wondered. It was very busy with a couple different couples, each with their own weird plots. A good brain vacation, but nothing life changing.

In other news, this past week I found a bunch of other Yarn Along-ers on Instagram. Delight! I love keeping up with what everyone is doing in the week. If you'd like to look me up, I'm MrsDymacek. 

What are you reading and stitching? Show and tell with Ginny


  1. i like your knitting project, but i am distracted by the cute little things in your home. i like the things that you like. catching the smoke from your hot tea and the beams of light, brilliant!!!!

    1. Thank you Debbie. I have quite the problem with liking things! I can't stop!

  2. It looks so much like Fall at your house! Tea Cozy's aren't as simple as I thought to fit. I have a knitting student who is struggling a bit with one. I found you on Instagram. I'm Knit1Spin2 if you want to add me :-)

  3. I loved seeing all the sunshine in your photos, it are STILL overcast.
    You have me thinking I should cast on a tea cozy, my poor teapot is naked and cold.
    Have fun knitting your cowl.

  4. Strange...we have that exact same teapot (sans the knit hat). Love that pic of the steaming tea.

  5. a tea cozy?!? I've never made one....think i need to fix that!!!!! I'm off to find you on instagram. (i'm woolythyme1 if you care to find me.....i sometimes forget about that medium, so I'm not overly active on it...i'm usually hunting for my phone!!!)

  6. Beautiful pictures! Your blog is wonderful to stroll through..

  7. I'll have to see who you found and see if I "know" them. Instagram is fun!! Lovely knitting and glad you like bean trees, I love her writing.
