Yarning along, with a throw back in time...

Hi everyone.  It is that time again - we are Yarning Along with Ginny and joining in with Tami's Amis' Work in Progress  and Ambassador Crochet !

As you can see from the picture, my scarf is growing.  It is being done in a spider web lace pattern, and the fiber is a Lions Brand wool. 

The new addition to the line up is a gift for a little one.  The fiber, Paton's Silk Bamboo blend is delightful - so incredibly soft.  The pattern is a bit of a granny stitch, reminiscent of by son's blanket, and is growing fast.

For reading, I have been going back to some old favorites.  The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.  Love, love, love it!

Did I say love?

Favorite scene?  In Voyager, when Claire travels back in time to Jamie, entering his printshop, only to have him faint in shock from the sight of her.

Ah, love...

Jamie and Claire can make anything better.

Have you read this series?  What is your favorite scene?
  Head on over to Ginny's, Tami's, and Ambassador's Crochet other interesting ventures of fiber fun. 


  1. I've never read the Outlander series, but I've heard lots about it... Maybe I should look out for it?

    1. Oh yes!! It is wonderful!!

    2. I will look for them at the library! Sounds good. Your scarf looks great! So does the little blanket...the bamboo silk sounds really nice, I've never used it but felt it at the store and it does feel soft!!!

  2. Never read the series but I've heard very good things about it.

  3. Ooh, that silk and bamboo blend sounds amazing. I'll have to dig into the Outlander series. I had a friend who was obsessed with them years ago and I meant to check them out and forgot. Thanks for the fun reminder!

  4. The silk bamboo is heavenly, isn't it. It's sure to be a wonderful baby blanket!

  5. I love the spider web lace scarf! Beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see your progress on both projects next week.
