Yarn Along: Knitting Socks and Reading the Nest

Hello Friends,

I hope you are all doing well. I am joining along with other knitters for Ginny's Yarn Along today. I have been working on a few different knitting projects this week. I have been knitting the infinity scarf, the sweater, and my most recent project is knitting socks with Bernat Sox yarn. I love working with the fine sock yarn for a change from the chunky yarn I use to knit heavy winter socks.  I am using Bernat Sox yarn in the 'Sangria' colour and using size 2.75 double-pointed needles.

I finished Knitlandia by Clara Parkes yesterday. I really enjoyed reading the book, and I learned more about the knitting events going on in the world, and I realized how amazing our community actually is. This book has given me a new found appreciation for our craft.  I saw that Clara Parkes has another book called The Yarn Whisperer which I might check out as another weekly read.

I have started reading The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney. My sister let me borrow it a month ago and highly recommended it. I was excited to read it, but I had other books on the go at the time. I have finally been able to read it. and I am enjoying it so far. I am looking forward to reading all that goes on in the Plumb family...
