Yarn Along: Candy Bridge

I'm linking up with Ginny for this week's Yarn Along.

Knitting: I haven't been knitting much lately because my hands hurt. I still need to finish my owl mitts along with 3 other projects I have going. In the meantime, I tried needle felting for the first time. I saw cute little felted candy corn on Etsy and a friend said, "We can make those!" and so she taught me. I am smitten. 

My spinning friends and I are all spinning yarn to knit the same project. A spin along/knit along if you will. I have enough of the main color done so I washed and dried my yarn over the weekend on a nifty drying rack that I picked up at an antique store for $25. Score!

I plied together wool that was dyed green & purple with a light gray wool. I like how the yarn looks a smoky lilac color from a distance. 

Reading: I just started The Bridge audiobook by Karen Kingsbury. Her audiobooks are some of my favorites and this one quickly grabbed my attention. I'm also reading Dodge the Bullet which is a light, fun read that I got free on my Kindle.

What are you knitting/spinning/reading?

Your yarn is beautiful. Sigh, someday I will learn to spin.
