Tome Time Reading and Knitting: Episode 11

Do you want to have a book swap? If so, please let me know in comments or in the Tome Time Ravelry group.  Sign up by June 30th to participate!

I have joined Instagram under the name of Tometimereadingandknitting.  I am Musingrunner on Ravelry, Twitter, Good Reads, and The Fold Line.

Knitting chat begins at 11:50.

Books mentioned:  Drowned City graphic novel by Don Brown, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave by Stephanie Barron, the Hound of the Baskerville by Arthur Conan Doyle.

Finished Objects: Vanilla socks in Blueberry Chick Yarns in the Umbrella Drinks at the Swim Up Bar for the Down Cellar Studio’s Splash Pad Party ’16.

Works in Progress: Zinone by Andi Satterlund in Quince and Co. Sparrow linen yarn in the Fundi color for the Outfit Along 2016 hosted by Lauren of the Lladybird blog and Andi of Untangling Knots.

Marooned by Hunter Hammersen in Vice Yarns Geraldo colorway. These are pair #6 of my 12 for Vollenvine’s Little Box of Socks KAL on the Yarngasm podcast.

Surprise Strips by Anna Johanna with my sock scraps.

Lafitte shawl by Denise Bell of Lost City Knits out of Lost City Knits Oak Barn Merino lace yarn.

Sewing: Simplicity 1607 in a bird print knit from Girl Charlee.  Next up is the Hollyburn skirt from Sewaholic patterns in some cotton lawn from Robert Kaufman.

Spinning: Organic alpaca and Polwarth from Owl About Yarn in the Sea Glass colorway. I am planning in spinning this in a heavy fingering weight two-ply for a shawl. I am looking for suggestions for a shawl pattern that is good for a variegated handspun yarn.

Training:  I am in training for a women’s sprint triathlon at the end of July.  It will be a hot one! Dogster wants to try out for the track and archery teams next year.

Thanks for watching!
