Happy Spring! Knitting Progress, and Reading

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I am so happy today is the first day of Spring!  It was a bit warmer today and sunny outside. It will be warmer this week too and I am looking forward to it. I have been working on knitting the beanie lately which I won't be able to wear that long, but I can probably get a bit more wear out of it before the weather is too warm for it.

I have made more progress on the beanie and getting to the end of the first skein of Patons yarn I purchased. I will need to buy another one to complete the beanie. I also want it to be extra slouchy so I will be knitting it the most that is suggested for extra slouchiness. I am using the Barley Light pattern by Tin Can Knits on Ravelry. I am really enjoying knitting this beanie so far and the pattern is really nice with the patch of purl on one side and the rest is knit. I really like the texture that is created by the knitting and purling every other row on that part of the hat.

The Wool and the Gang Farrah Billie Jean top is coming along as well. I am working on the back piece and will be focusing on it more once I finish the beanie. 

I have still been reading Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. It is such a good book so far and I am loving the characters. I have been listening to the audiobook Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey. I am wanting to get into budgeting and have heard many great things about his strategies in paying off debt and also saving for your future. I am liking it so far and I am looking forward to learning more as I listen to more of the book. I really like audiobooks because I can also knit while listening to them so it is perfect for learning and getting some reading in while making progress on my knitting at the same time.

Joining along with Frontier Dreams for Crafting On and As Kat Knits tomorrow for Unraveled Wednesday.

Have a great day!
