Yarn Along Wednesday: Front of the Sweater and Reading Amy Shumer's Book

Hello Friends,

I haven't participated in the Yarn Along Wednesday for a couple of weeks now, so I thought I would post today. I like to post when I have new things to show but it is also nice to keep consistent and I love doing these Yarn Along posts. When I think of Wednesday now, I associate it with Ginny's Yarn Along link up. I posted a blog entry about finishing the back piece of the sweater on Monday this week, and since that time, I have started knitting the front piece of the sweater. I am still working on reading Amy Shumer's book which is hilarious as one would guess. I love her style of writing because I feel like she writes exactly how she speaks so you feel like she is speaking to you. I loved her in the movie Trainwreck and have been a fan ever since. I see some similarities from the movie in her autobiography, she probably used some experiences from her own life for the movie. Below is a photo of the knitting I have done so far for the front piece of the sweater along with the book The Girl with The Back Tattoo by Amy Shumer.

Front piece of sweater and the book  I am reading this week
Here is an updated photo of my plants. Two of the African Violets are thriving but one is droopy and has no flowers. I gave them all Africa Violet food this afternoon so I am hoping this helps them. The aloe plant to the left was a gift from my friend and it is doing very well, the two succulents are still doing well. The rhoeo plant is doing okay but it is not as tall as when I got it. It is a tropical plant so it is probably having a hard time with the lack of light on the windowsill. I have a bamboo plant on its own in the kitchen and it is doing very well too. I read an article in the Toronto Star about how people in Toronto have a lot of plants now and they treat them as their babies because they can't have pets in their building(like us), and don't have children yet.. I can relate.

  1. Your African violets are beautiful.

    I think that article may be right. I have Giroux (the cat) to take care of (and my plants too). After our son moved to another city, I felt sad that he was gone and I started thinking about getting a cat. It took two years, but the cats DOES fill that "nurturing" role that I lost when Stephen grew up.

    1. Thank you Dee! I am happy with how two of them are growing and want to help encourage the other to catch up :P thats good you got your cat after your son left they do fill the void and it always feels like there is someone around with pets. My parents have two cats, I recently moved out and miss having them around, now I have my plants and my boyfriend to take care of :P hope you have a good week!

  2. I listened to that book while driving and loved it. Happy knitting!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! happy knitting to you too, and I hope you have a good weekend!

  3. Your african violets are beautiful. I have one too. I think having plants in my home (and actually take care of them) was the point I started to grow up ;)
    I really like Amy Schumer - can't wait her new movie.
