Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Yarn Along- July 2019

As a change from my more recent reading material, I am enjoying a gentle story set on the Italian Riveria in the 1920s. A beautiful garden and four women on a month’s holiday from dreary London who discover life again.

Knitting wise, I am still using yarn and patterns already bought and squirreled away. This yarn is called Smudge by Sirdar, and it will be a soft and squishy cushion.

  1. That sounds idyllic – when do we go! 🙂

  2. This is a great summer combo, though I’m with you, big needles can literally be a pain! I should have put my current book with my cardi!

  3. I like the way the book and the yarn are colour co-ordinated! The book sounds good – an ideal Summer read and the yarn looks like a chenille-type. I haven’t knitted anything for a few years – my yarn stash was brought here out of storage a few weeks ago; shall have to find an interesting project to get back into it!

    • The colour combo is sheer coincidence I think, maybe I am having a grey phase. It does feel like chenille but without the shedding. Hope you find a good project for some knitting. I am appalled by how many projects I have got yarn and pattern for all stashed away in the cupboard.

  4. I like the sound of your gentle story. No bloodthirsty activities in this one.

  5. Agreeing with Margaret above on your beautiful yarn. If you get the chance, see also the excellent movie version of this.

  6. Smudge looks very soft and squishy, a perfect cushion 🙂
