Yarn Along

Yarn Along - The Pomegranate Chronicles

Reading: I am still plugging along on Wurthering Heights. I know I had mentioned it was a free download for Kindle, but did I mention I also found it as a free download at the iPad appstore? Look it up! I’ve been reading a chapter a night, when I can make it through without falling asleep. I am still very interested in the story, and find it hard to put down (even though most nights, I need to go to bed!) I’ve been researching which classic I should read next. Any suggestions?

Knitting: I am really enjoying the Twisted Rib Neckwarmer. The four row pattern is easy to memorize and has made it a great portable project. The Cascade 220 100% Merino Wool has been such a pleasure to work with. I just love Cascade. I am hoping to get some time to really knock through this cowl and hopefully finish it up in the next week or so.

What are you reading? Crafting? Any suggestions on classic books for me?

Joining Ginny!

    I love the twisted rib stitch…so simple but so pretty to look at! I’m working on a sweater for my daughter with cascade and am reminded about how much I love this yarn! Stopping by from the Yarn along today. Have a lovely day!

    thanks for the free book suggestion…..i downloaded a couple of classics on my kindle, but somehow missed that old favorite. (gosh, how many years has it been since i read that????????!)

    You are most welcome! I have found many of the classics people are suggesting for Free on the App Store. I added, Jane Eyre and The Count of Monte Cristo to the list as well…

    Your work is lovely and Wuthering Heights is one of my all-time faves!! I also love Jane Austen, Alexandre Dumas (recommend The Count of Monte Cristo), and Somerset Maughm (recommend Of Human Bondage).

    Thank you Clair. I found The Count of Monte Cristo as a free download on the apple store. So I have added it to my list!

    Thank you very much Erin. Have a lovely week!

    I am drooling over your color of yarn, it is so pretty. My LYS will no longer be carrying Cascade, she is switching to Ella Rae, bummer.

  14. February 4, 2013 at 8:44 am

    Oh no Tracey! I do like Ella Rae as well, but like Cascade just a tad more.

  15. January 30, 2013 at 9:46 am

    I love wuthering heights one of my all time favorite classics full of angst. Oh Heathcliff… Great twisted rib!!!

  16. January 30, 2013 at 10:49 am

    Cascade 220 is my go-to yarn for sweaters. I love the color you picked.

  17. January 30, 2013 at 11:33 am

    The twisted rib is really looking good, I love the yarn color. Okay, for a Classic suggestion – If you’ve not read ‘Sense and Sensibility’ by Jane Austen I highly recommend it. If you have the Jane Eyre another one by Bronte.

  18. February 4, 2013 at 8:41 am

    Jane Eyre seems to be a popular choice! :) I found it as a free download on the apple store and have added it to the list. Thank you for your suggestion.

    Oh, I would like to learn that twisted rib stitch – so pretty.

  22. February 4, 2013 at 8:40 am

    Tonya, it’s very simple. I really think you would pick it up fast.

  23. January 30, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    Count me as another who loves the color you’ve chosen. It’s beautiful.

    Thank you Mrs. Mallard. I hope you have a wonderful week!

  25. January 31, 2013 at 12:42 am

    That yarn color is beautiful! Classics– Jane Eyre, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Good Earth, Giants in the Earth, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Grapes of Wrath… shall I go on? :) (English teacher!) Happy crafting.

  26. February 4, 2013 at 8:37 am

    Thank you Michelle. I just checked my bookshelves, and I did find the Good Earth. I have added it to the list!

  27. February 4, 2013 at 8:39 am

    Michelle- I just downloaded Jane Eyre and I found The Good Earth on my bookshelf. Two more for the list! :)

  28. February 1, 2013 at 12:32 am

    Love the colour!

    Have you read Jane Eyre? My all time favourite, and the book that started me toward feminist thinking. What about a modern classic like 1984 or Brave New World?

  29. February 4, 2013 at 8:36 am

    Thank you Christy. I just downloaded Jane Eyre for free off the app store. :)

  30. February 3, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    Gorgeous and the color is perfect :)

  31. February 4, 2013 at 8:38 am
