Yarn Along is a monthly blog hop hosted by Genny Sheller of Small Things. It disappeared for a little while but now it’s back on the first Wednesday of every month. It’s a quiet moment in our busy schedules to share what we are reading and knitting on.

I know I’m a little late to the party but better late than never, right? Right?

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and the shawl I'm knitting

I’m rereading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (affiliate link) and I’m still knitting the same cabled shawl (the Carradal pattern from Celtic Cable Shawls (affiliate link) by Lucy Hague) I was last time I told you about my knitting project. However, as you can see, I have finally completed all my stripes and moved on to the cabled section. Unfortunately, I stopped in the middle of a row for some reason when I was last working on it and now I find I can’t remember what I was supposed to be doing. Whoops.

I finally feel like I’m recovering from our move and starting to feel settled again in our little place in California where we’re going to be until spring. I definitely appreciate the sun more than I did last time I was here. On especially bright days, my husband and I sit on the deck with our sleeves pulled up, torn between protecting our cave-creature-fair skin and our oft-neglected Vitamin D needs. There are things blooming in our garden already. The magic of a place that only has a week-long winter.

More soon.

  1. Beautiful colors! I found Outlander to be a page-turner for sure…

    1. Yes, I enjoy it very much. I got half way through the series before and then got distracted. By the time I got back to it, I no longer remembered what had happened! So, I’m trying again.

    Your shawl is lovely and oh how moving can be tough. Glad you are feeling settled. Visiting from small things. 🙂

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Tina!

  3. Love the colours you chose- a bit like water and moss.
    I read Outlander some months ago and loved it- now I finished the second book.
    Have a nice day.

    1. Thanks, Rahel! Yeah, my shawl colors fit in pretty well with my Kodiak environment 🙂 Lots of moss

    Have you figured out where you left off?

    1. I did, but then I messed up and have to go back again *sigh*
