Unraveled Wednesday | Close.

...as in close to the end of the endless stockinette. Don't let that little garter ridge fool you - the border of this piece is garter stitch worked in the round. yep, knit a round, purl a round. It might as well be stockinette!

Yesterday I was hopeful I might have a new project to share today, but turns out the last four rows of red, then picking up 200+ stitches and putting another 500+ on the needle ... well, now I'm just glad to have a new color to share with y'all.

and an almost color-coordinated book! I'm reading the last book for summer bingo so I went back to the Read Harder challenge for an audiobook. This one fits the "book set in South America by a South American author" category. So far so good.

Joining in with Kat today and looking forward to seeing what y'all are knitting and reading!

p.s.  in case you missed it - yesterday I shared a link to a very short survey that a local young man - working on a project with Georgia Tech to explore technology solutions to help crafters - put together. Please click here if you have a few minutes to help him out.

  1. This is going to beautiful when you're done, and I'm hoping for maybe some lovely photos in Alaska, but I can hardly imagine actually knitting all that endless stockinette myself. (Because Hitchhikers are very different, with all their endless garter. :-))

  2. I will never have a new project on the needles, at least it feels that way :) I love your project and I hope you bravely make it though the last bit of knitting.

  3. I'm listening to Anna Karenina and that's my last summer book bingo book, too. So yesterday I started reading The Snow Child and I love it!

  4. That is going to be one stunning stole! I can't even imagine having a coverall for Bingo. Wow!

  5. LOVE the colors! (Can't wait to see the whole thing. . . ) Probably no coverall for me this year -- but that's okay! I've had a great time with my reading. :-)

  7. Wow! That's a ton of stitches...but so very, very beautiful. Cannot wait to see the end product. My reading has slowed somewhat, but I may yet get a bingo...time will tell. However, I've gotten tons of great suggestions of books and that's what means the most to me anyway.

  8. I love her books, I haven't read this one, so I guess that means I need to add it to my list!
