It's Yarn Along again. Time to see what knitters are knitting and reading all around the interwebs. It's a great way to find new knitting blogs and get people to find yours too! We've been doing this a while and you can see our progress on our knitting for almost the past year!
That startitis finally turned up. Yesterday I cast on the Redfern Cardigan, which you can find on the cover of the latest Interweave Knits (Fall 2014). As we've mentioned before this issue is well worth the price and features a ton of knittable and wearable sweaters. I might actually knit three different styles from this one issue alone (hence the startitis). Thus, our Yarn Along this week features the Goddess Yarns Ellen in a lovely shade of eggplant and the latest Interweave Knits:
What are you knitting and reading?
I had a simple goal when I started doing video blogs aka Knit Luck TV: to facilitate greater connection between knitters online. I'm absolutely thrilled that Terri has come through to share her knitting origin story and how she connects with her fellow crafters in a prayer shawl ministry!
Check it out:
It's not that hard to do your own video response! Just shoot some video, upload it to youtube and put the link in the comments of my video.
It was great to get the chance to get to know a Knit Luck reader and would love the chance to meet more of you!
I am determined to have a much more exciting Year of Projects post next week. I would very much like to go ahead and cast on a ton of new projects like a hat, a new sweater and a baby blanket, but all I have for this week is just a few rows knitted on the Textured Shawl. Times are busy with school and kid stuff so I haven't been knitting as much as I would like, but if I can finish a few chores this weekend I'll have more time to knit (I hope). I might even brave the old storage unit.
Tomorrow is video blog day so come back and visit for that. I think I'm going to tell my learning to knit story.
Here's my progress for the year!

What's new with your knitting?
It's my favorite time of year (Fall) AND time for Interweave Press's annual $1.99 digital download sale!!! If you love Interweave's magazines but don't love Interweave's prices, now's the time to stock up on some fun knitting reading material and sweet sweet knitting patterns! (full disclosure -I am an Interweave Affiliate), but aside from that I myself will be buying a few digital copies myself and thought my fellow knitters would enjoy the opportunity!

What's going on now?
I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
