yarn along - first time circular needles

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?~ Ginny

I've started to knit my first sweater ever - FOLLOWING A PATTERN!!! can you believe it?!?!
(of course I already have few changes in my mind - for the body of the cardigan but in general I'm following the pattern!)

here's the Ravelry link to my project :)

I've seen the last HP movie and I loved it - but it reminded me about how awesome the book was so I'm re-reading it now.

what about you? what are you reading and knitting/crocheting?

oh and here's a photo from yesterday - big storm - now another one's coming (hint: bad lighting of the photo - it's 10:15 a.m. and we had to turn on the light - it's so dark outside)


  1. Great lightening picture!
    Good luck with your sweater. Can't wait to see it.
    I'm glad to hear HP was good, I can't wait to go. I'll be rereading the book next week before I go :)

  2. Hooray a sweater! Good luck following the pattern :) What do you think of circular needles so far?

  3. Great pattern... I can't wait to see it finished and modeled by you! :)

    Blessings, Debbie

  4. I still need to see the last HP movie (and HBP fully for that matter).

    Man, I haven't DH in a couple of years now. Mmmmm, maybe I should re-read it, too.

  5. Wow! Great lightening picture!
    I'm glad to hear the HP movie is good. I'll be rereading #7 next week before I go to see it :)

  6. cool lightning! I heart Harry Potter!!

  7. Wow! What a storm...it rains a lot here, but we never have such fabulous storms! What an awesome cardigan! I'm doing my first sweater ever, too. Terrifying. Best of luck!

  8. I loved the last movie! So sad that it is the very last. I have that sweater pattern queued on Ravelry, great choice!!

  9. can't wait to see the sweater - that yarn is awesome! and wow, that lightening!

  10. Good luck with your sweater! I knit my first -- a baby sweater -- recently and started on another baby sweater. One of these days I'll muster the courage for a grown-up one!

    I haven't seen the HP movie yet, but can't wait to do so! (Stopping by from Ginny's Yarn Along)

  11. Such a powerful post, lightening, patterns, Harry Potter. Go you on the sweater, welldone. Hope you enjoy it. Here is my link;


    Take care, Katie x

  12. Knitting a sweater is one of my goals for next year. I think I'll start with a baby sweater though. Looking forward to how it turns out.
