Lately, I’ve been…

Knitting :: My shawl for the Yarn Buddies KAL, which is a little group knitalong with my friends Nika and Amirah. The idea for the knitalong started when Amirah gifted us each with a skein of this beautiful limited edition colourway from Neighborhood Fiber Co. We’re each making a different shawl (and, I think, each using a different contrast colour). I’m using Laura Aylor’s First Point of Libra pattern, and my contrast yarn is this lovely grey from O-Wool, which I got at Rhinebeck last year. I am so pleased with how it’s knitting up, and I’m already imagining sweater that would be beautiful knit with this yarn.

Reading :: Still reading Ghana Must Go by Taiye Selasi. To be honest, I only read a few dozen pages of this novel this week. I am also reading Contagious by Jonah Berger, which I only started yesterday afternoon but am nearly halfway through. Although I’m not very interested in the sales and marketing bits of this book, the sociological parts have been fascinating. It’s a really quick and accessible read – highly recommended so far.

Watching :: Not a lot this week (it’s been a busy one – I got a kitten, more on this later!), but I have watched a couple more episodes of Trapped, which is an Icelandic murder mystery. It’s perfect for watching while working on the easier projects I have on the go right now, as I have to pay a bit of attention to read the subtitles.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Linking up with KCCO and Yarn Along.

  1. Kylie, how lovely to be knitting shawls with your friends! Love the O-wool. I haven’t tried their fingering weight yarns yet, but I love the heavier yarns. The colors on this are gorgeous.
    I also just snuck a peak at your Color Affection shawl. The colors you chose work so well together. It is absolutely beautiful.

  2. That colorway is pretty! Contagious sounds interesting as does Trapped.

  3. Love your yarn – and I just love knitting shawls. I have Ghana Must Go on my list too, but my list is very long!

  4. Great pics! Love the angle and close ups.
