Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Knitting {Yarn Along}

Knitting {Yarn Along}

I'm still knitting the Celtic Cable Neckwarmer.  It feels like the knitting has been going so slowly, but I need to keep knitting away because it's for a Christmas gift to my sister in law [Jen] in honor of memories made last December in Northern Ireland.

I'm still reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.  Hope you enjoy one of my favorite paragraphs from this book:
It was a sledge, and it was reindeer with bells on their harness. But they were far bigger than the Witch's reindeer, and they were not white but brown.  And on that sledge sat a person whom everyone knew the moment they set eyes on him.  He was a huge man in a bright red robe (bright as hollyberries) with a hood that had fur inside it and a great white beard that fell like a foamy waterfall over his chest.

  1. Beautiful cabling, and I bet your sister in law will love it :)

  2. Can't wait to see this when it's finished! Did you ever mention what yarn you're using? Just curious what it is as I love the color. ~Lisa :)

  3. What a gorgeous neckwarmer! I love the pattern and the color is so rich and beautiful. And I've just downloaded "The Lion, the Witch. . . " from Audible -- seems to be the only way I have time to 'read' lately with all the Christmas knitting and commotion going on. I love the passage you've shared -- just the perfect picture of Santa's arrival!

  4. Great post! That knitting pattern is gorgeous...looks complicated!
