Yarn Along

I'm linking up to the Small Things Yarn Along this week to share what I've been knitting and reading lately. I'm knitting Pillar socks two at a time (my favorite way!) in this yarn and reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. My husband and I started reading through the Harry Potter series again recently and I'm enjoying it so much! These books always put me into the coziest mood and make me want to knit and drink lots of tea, which is perfect since that's what I do most of the time anyway.

This is the fastest I have knit a pair of socks in my life...I started them a little over week ago and I am getting so close to finishing them. Just need to knit down the foot and toe decreases.
I used this little stitch marker while working on the heels (a gift from Owl Print Panda) and even though I haven't needed it since I keep it on my needles because it makes me happy. He's such a bright eyed little helper.

What have you been working on and reading lately?

  3. Sock knitting 2-at-a-time is my favorite way to knit them too! My hubby and I enjoyed the HP series together. I'm about due to re-read them. Happy knitting and reading!

    1. Isn't two at a time the best? I get the worst second sock syndrome! So this works great for me! But I also love being able to be on the same row on each sock at the same time so it's easier to remember things! :)

  4. I need to learn 2-at-a-time, since I think that is the only way I will ever actually knit socks! Your yarn is beautiful and I am having some serious envy over your cute stitch marker.

    Your description of Harry Potter is spot on - it always has the same effect on me and I always think about pulling them out in the fall! I have already read them twice, but could definitely stand to re-read them again soon!

    1. I really love two at a time! It's my favorite way to knit socks! And I agree...the Harry Potter books put me in such a fall mood! I am craving pumpkin food and butterbeer lattes!
