Finished Knitting Back Piece of WAG Farrah Billie Jean Top

Hello Friends,

I hope you are all doing well. This morning I finally finished the back piece of the Wool and the Gang Farrah Billie Jean top. I am happy that now I can start sewing up the shoulders and sides of the top and the tank top will be done.


I had made more progress on the decadent socks, but sadly had to frog some of it because I was ending up with areas of loose stitches and holes and realized I needed to take it apart and start that section over.


I purchased some more Patons Kroy Socks yarn in the color gray to begin knitting some fingerless mittens for Winter. I don't really want to think of colder weather right now, but I am going to be knitting some of these up now so they are ready and they are also fun to knit.I have knitted a couple pairs using Manos Uruguay yarn last winter.



I am currently reading Introvert Power by Laurie A Helgoe. I am really enjoying this book. I am also going to be reading Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks. I purchased the book Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella and I am so excited to read it soon, the description sounds so interesting and fascinating. 

Hope you enjoy your Sunday evening and thank you for stopping by!

Have a great day

Knitting Progress on Decadent Socks

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. It has finally cooled down a bit here in Toronto. Last weekend and this past week were very hot and humid. It has been nice and cool last night and today and this weather is more bearable to go for walks and hang out outside. We don't have air conditioning at our place so it is better for my boyfriend and I when it cools down.

I have been working on knitting the Decadent Socks this week. I have made quite a bit of progress. I am now at the point in the pattern where I knit rows 1 through 20 once more then I begin the heel when I am finished the repeat. So far this has been a fun pattern to knit and a bit of a challenge. There are rows where I knit right twists and cables and it was a bit fiddly with the cable needle. I am liking how the pattern is emerging and loving the self striping yarn and how it is looking with this pattern.




This week I have been reading Introvert Power by Laurie A Helgoe and it is as good as I have heard it is. I am also reading Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks, although it took a bit of a backseat this week. I have to read it for an online book club by the end of July. I am also listening to The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey on audio book. I need to finish it this time before my loan is up at the library.

Progress on Knitting Projects and Reading Updates

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. It has been awhile since I last posted and it has been a busy month. I got a permanent position at my contract position and we had a bridal shower for my sister last weekend. It has been a fun and exciting month. I have missed knitting and blogging but I will be back at it now. I have been working on knitting the back piece of the Wool and the Gang Farrah Billie Jean tank top and the decadent socks.

The decadent socks are coming along well. I am still currently working on the cuff of the sock and loving how the pattern is turning out. I am using Patons Kroy sock yarn in the colorway Tourmaline Stripes which give it the stripes in the sock. I love the colors of gray and navy blue. The pattern is decadent socks on Ravelry if you are interested.


For the Wool and the Gang Farrah Billie jean tank top, the back piece is still in progress. I really want to finish this piece soon to be able to sew the front piece I already knitting with this piece and hopefully have the finished tank in time for Summer.


I finished reading Commonwealth by Ann Patchett and loved this book. I enjoyed reading about the characters and their relationships and how they grow and change over the years. It is also interesting how more comes to light about the relationships between the parents as you read on. I am currently reading Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks which is a collection of short stories. It was recommended by a vlogger I follow and I decided to give it a read.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I hope you enjoy your weekend and I will have more updates to share with you soon.
