Yarn Along

I usually do not have so many projects going at once. I finished Peter's sweater. The neck is horribly too wide and I know that I want to change it. I have never tried to go back after I have already finished a project. It is daunting, and I know I will need to work undisturbed. That undisturbed part is almost more challenging than the repair itself!

I started making a bunny. I have been admiring her sweet animals for a long time, and when she finally published the pattern, I knew I wanted to try and make one.

The purse is the thing that has been the longest in completing even though the knitting part is done. I need to make the lining and sew it in. Once again, undisturbed time is hard to come by, so this project could be lingering on for months yet.

I am reading 'The Screwtape Letters' for the second time. This time around I am reading it with a friend and we will try to do our own little book club type thing. I think it will be fun and I am really looking forward to our discussions.

Linking up with Ginny, as usual.


  1. Don't you just hate it when you finish something so time-consuming and it's not perfect? I'll never get used to that. I just did the same thing with Faith's sweater. I'd be tempted to try to weave some elastic thread into that neck, but that might be worse if you can see it.

  2. Jenny, your knitting is so impressive - even if it doesn't always turn out how you want. :)

    The Screwtape Letters is such an interesting book. I totally need to pull that out and read it again too. Hope you enjoy it!

  3. I love the sweater regardless of the neckline. It looks sweet and comfy but I know I would pull it apart too to if I wasn't happy with it.
    I made a purse once and seriously took maybe a year before I decided to go to the effort of lining it and the handle. Now I don't even have a reason to carry a purse (diaper bag being much more useful) and the purse has become my knitting bag. Good thing I finished it up, eh? haha

    I love The Screwtape Letters. C.S. Lewis was such a genius.

  4. The neck may be "horribly too wide" but hello? You knit your son a sweater!

    And two thumbs' up to your current read! You will like being in a book club with your friend. It's the kind of intellectual depth we busy moms need but don't always make time for.

    Happy weekend, Jenny!
