Yarn Along – 09/25/2013

I admit, I have made very little progress this week….

This week, I am reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog, I read half of the book over the weekend and I really like it so far.  🙂

On my Yurt Throw, I only finished one and a half square 😦  The square I am currently working on will complete all of the Navy squares.


Here is the overall pattern and progress so far:


I used up all of the rest of the baby alpaca yarn for my husband’s Stormy Scarf and the new yarn I purchased to finish the project just arrived last night.  I started with 3 skiens, and had to by two more.  This scarf just uses the cable pattern from Cable Guy form the Son of a Stitch N’ Bitch book.Here is the scarf so far:SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

    I LOVE Elegance of the Hedgehog. I also loved the movie. I was worried they wouldn’t capture the essence of the book, but they did.
    Love your squares as well and your progress chart.

    Loved The Elegance of the Hedgehog! Love your Yurt Throw. When I was in high school (many moons ago) I made something similar. It has 63 squares with each square a different pattern. It languishes in a closet due to the color choices but every now and then I take it out and admire all the patterns.

      I finished the book a couple of days ago, it was really good, but I was disappointed that just as the story gets going, it abruptly ends 😦
