Yarn Along!

Joining in this week with Ginny to share two of my favorite things...reading and knitting. Right now I am reading "Under the Banner of Heaven, A story of violent faith" by Jon Krakauer. I just finished "Into the Wild" by him and it was one of the best books I have read, so I thought I would give this one a try. I just started, but so far it is great. The knitting is the Striped Yoke Top from the Spring/Summer Debbie Bliss magazine. I am knitting straight on circular needles due to the amount of stitches cast on. It will be my first top, so I hope it goes well. Wish me luck. Also we are dealing with some health scares in our extended family, so please think good thoughts that things will go well.

Peace, Yasmin


  1. I have read a few John Krakauer books but have never heard of this one. Have you read 'Into thin air'? very good also. Your top is looking nice, love the shine on the yarn.

    1. I haven't read Into Thin Air, but I did watch a documentary or movie that I think was based on the book. I plan to eventually read that one too. The yarn is Debbie Bliss Bella in Stone, I like it quite a bit. Thanks for checking out my blog.
