Yarn Along

This is my proudest Yarn Along to date.
This Guernsey Wrap has been on my needles forever...
but I never grew tired of working on it because the pattern is forever changing.
I love the yarn, from Plymouth Yarn Company,
it is Cashmere De Cotton, 10% Cashmere and 90% Cotton.
Made in Italy, it was a joy to work with.

It is a gift for Christmas and I could not be more thrilled with the finished product.

And if you are wondering how long it is...

it's it is drying on my yoga mat and it did not even fit!

But don't get any ideas about yoga in this house...
the yoga mat is for blocking and drying hand knits only.

I am joining Ginny at Small Things
for Yarn Along

Scenes from Yesteryear...

Staying alert during a ride in the car is so important.
This is a struggle for I knit, or do I enjoy the view?
I generally choose the view and I am so glad I did on this day...

Could you imagine missing this?
A few weeks ago the hubs and I were in South Jersey looking at property,
we both saw this and as I shouted the hubs was pulling over, he saw it too.
But you must know that he is well "schooled" as he was on the shoulder before I even shouted.

This mural was amazing, a true work of art.
I wish more people would/could do this, 
it is such a great way to beautify an ordinary building!
And can you imagine, this is a Self Storage Building, one of the best I have ever seen.
