Knitting Updates and Reading on

Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. I have been working on knitting the scarf made with Juniper Moon Farm yarn. I frogged the last scarf that I started knitting in stockinette and had shared in the last post. I realized that knitting a scarf in stockinette was not a great idea since the sides were curling inward and it was looking less scarf like and more like a tube. I decided to go to my tried and true ribbed stitch I have enjoyed knitting scarves in this pattern over the years for how it looks when it is done and its simplicity.  This stitch pattern also helps in avoiding the knitting from curling and there are some other patterns that are good for knitting scarves and help in avoiding the curling as well such as seed stitch and knitting in garter stitch.



I have started reading Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis and I am loving it. I like the way she encourages the reader to start holding themselves accountable and keep promises to themselves. I feel like this book was something I needed right now as I am trying to push myself more to do the things I decide to do or should do to live a happier and healthier life. She includes stories about her own struggles as well and she creates a space of non judgment because she has been through a lot herself. I am looking forward to reading more of this book and what lessons it teaches me.

I am getting excited for Christmas now and have done the tradition of going to my parents house last weekend to decorate their tree and welcome the holiday season by drinking Almond nog and eating cookies and fruit cake. I am going to start decorating our apartment this weekend and I look forward to making it more festive in here. I also look forward to picking out our real tree to put up and decorate in December.

Joining along with Frontier Dreams for Crafting On and AsKatKnits for Unraveled Wednesday.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today. I hope you are having a good week so far. I am happy it is Thursday tomorrow and that we are almost at the weekend!

Have a wonderful day

  4. Ribbing is great for scarves. Stockinette only works if you edge it with garter panels.
    Sounds like you are into the holiday spirit!
