Yarn Along: Minding Frankie...


Whew!  We took a little trip to visit family this past weekend and there was lots of time for knitting!  We drove for about sixteen hours (and by we, I mean my husband!) there and back and I was able to knit, knit, knit!  I had just done a row or two after dividing for the sleeve before the trip and now I have ten inches (from the underarm) of stockinette completed!  Hooray!  I have about three more inches to knit in stockinette and then I'll start on the garter stitch trim to finish up the body.  

I whipped right through Minding Frankie by Maeve Binchy this week.  I found it on the sale table at the library and snapped it right up.  I enjoyed it, but as far as I'm concerned Circle of Friends was Binchey's best novel.

What are you knitting and reading?

I'm working up the gumption to start this sweater next. I love that pale blue yarn! I have to confess that I've never read a Maeve Binchy novel. I should change that!

I enjoyed Minding Frankie as well and also long car rides for knitting. Thank you for recommending the other title of hers - I will look that one up.

The blue gray yarn is beautiful!
I agree that Circle of Friends was Maeve Binchy's best novel.

It sure is, Elizabeth! I wish that there were more road trips coming up for us... if only for the extra time to knit!

This pattern is not too hard, Joy! I hope that you like Maeve Binchy's books as much as I do!

I hope that you will get a chance to read Circle of Friends, P&JL!

Thanks for your comment about the yarn, Erica. I go back and forth about the color... I think that I have been knitting with it too long to be a good judge! :)
