Death of the Party and Knit

It's Wednesday! What are you reading? What are you knitting?

Join in at Yarn Along and let us all know!


This is my along-along project--my Yarn Along and my carry along! The blanket for DGD is too unwieldy for a carry along project in the summer heat, so I started this little garter stitch scarf in alternating rows of moss green and burgundy using two strands of yarn of each color. One of the burgundy strands is slightly redder than the other, so it makes a very pretty blend when knitted. Yes, you guessed it! A stash-buster!

I've just started reading Death of the Party by Carolyn Hart. So we have the requisite death and the gathering of related characters in the manse. I like the way she is introducing the characters.


What are you reading and knitting?

The Book sounds interesting I have to check it out! I am also working on stash busting projects.

I sooooooo envy those who know how to knit. I've tried it a couple of times and I can master the casting on...but, from there...POOF!! I am all thumbs. Now, crocheting I can do fine.

Love your newest project.


I enjoyed your company...do hope you'll find time for a return visit sometime. In fact, today my post is: SOMETHING STUPID

A stash buster scarf. Looks good so far. I need to do some of that too with little bits of yarn here and there.

A good mystery and yarn. Nothing is better!

It takes perseverance to keep knitting through the summer, doesn't it?

I'm knitting a baby sweater and reading "Looking for George Orwell in Burma." Non-fiction.
