Yarn Along: Quentins...


 I whipped through Quentins by Maeve Binchy this past week.  I always forget about how wonderfully she writes...  I want to reread Circle of Friends next, then Evening Class, and maybe Tara Road.  I didn't realize it was made into a movie with Andie MacDowell...  I'll have to see if I can find it on Netflix.

Since I am finished with the Riverbank Cowl and am saving up a bit for the yarn for my next project, I was at loose ends.  I remembered that Lila had a scarf project that I liked a lot.   When I looked it up, I was so happy to find that the pattern was free, I had quite a bit of yarn (in the right weight!) left over from the Grasshopper Shawl, and I had the correct sized needles already...  The Knitting Trifecta!  So now, I am working on a little Favorite Scarf Ever in Madeline Tosh Merino Light in Charcoal!

Madeline Tosh is one of my favorites. That will make a lovely scarf. And what a bonus that you had it in your stash!

It so nice when all the pieces fall right into place, yarn, pattern, needles, like it was just meant to be!
Happy knitting.

I've read many Maeve Binchy books. Interesting writer. I love her name and chose it for my daughter!

Tara Road is a great book and the movie really does justice to it. I hope you get to see it.

I loved Quentins! Its been so long since I've read any Maeve Binchy, I think it might be time to have a little (re)visit. Your knitting is looking pretty already, love the colour :)

I keep meaning to look for Maeve Binchy at the library, and then I keep forgetting...I went in the online system and requested it this time! That scarf looks lovely.
