Joining in with Ginny for the Yarn along.
I love to read. I love to knit. Here's a little bit about both.
Almost two months ago i stopped by a Phildar shop in Paris and picked up a new catalogue. Then I went home, skimmed the pages quickly and fell in love with the lovely scarf/chèche. I mean seriously that color? That's basically my description of Fall (you know, the BEST season of the year!). So i went looking for that yarn. 10 shops and a few weeks later, I had nothing. The yarn used wasn't in stock anymore or would ever be because the brand was moving on to their winter yarn and this one (a mix of coton and linen) doesn't qualify I guess. Then Monday I was in Paris and went to one of my favorite shopping spot basically just to look at pretty things. I know they had a Phildar corner so I went to well look at pretty yarn basically. And there it was. The yarn I had been looking for everywhere. 9 balls of them, at only 99 cents each! Apparently they had been lost and forgotten for a while in a box. Obviously i grabbed them all (even though i actually only need 4/5 for the pattern). Lucky day right? The color is even prettier in real life, i'm in love. And i don't even mind that the pattern is in french even though i only know how to knit in english! I translated everything yesterday and quickly casted on. Can't wait to wear it!
Books now! I have been reading A LOT of magazines lately. Pictures + words, it's basically the best. I started a subscription to Taproot (that name is awesome) and got my first issue in the mail last week. Full of beautiful words. I also grabbed the most recent issue of Flow Magazine which I find crazy inspiring. Have you read any of this two magazines?
As for novels/fictions, i am reading Where rainbows end (also known as Love, Rosie) mostly because they made a movie out of it, I really really liked the trailer and so I thought I'd read the book first. I ALWAYS read the book first. Are you like that too?
Anyway, that's it for this week, can't wait to see what you are all working on!
ps: the blue scarf is done!! Well i still have to bind off and then block it which is probably going to take forever since it's so big but i'm excited! I'll post about it soon!
