Yarn Along

I’m joining Ginny’s Yarn Along this week for the first time. I’m making slow but steady progress on my Puerperium cardigan. For the first time EVER I am bang on gauge. Which means…I am knitting a newborn cardigan that will come out newborn size! Newborn size means 6-8lb so I’m really crossing my fingers that I don’t go and have a 10lber who never gets to wear it. It’s taken me ages! And I’m still freaking about the sleeves, I’ve never done circular knitting before. Wish me luck and confidence!

Yarn Along

I’ve just started The Night Circus and am not sure what to expect from it. I waited for ages to get hold of a copy from the library so I hope it’s as good as it sounds. It can be so hard to find a really gripping book.

    LMK how you like ‘the night circus’ I had high hopes for it too, but I think after 50 – 75 pages I gave up and returned the book. However, the quote on the cover of your book, I’ve read both books by that author, the time traveler’s wife and her fearful symmetry, and quite liked both of those so I do recommend them!

    Oh how itty bitty that yellow cardigan is, it’s painfully cute!

  14. Please post again on your thoughts on The Night Circus. I’ve been leery to read it because of the mixed reviews, but I really like the author so I’d like to give it a shot.
