I wish I could tell you what yarn I am using but I didn't keep the tags on the yarn. I bought it at my local yarn shop. It is a sock weight washable yarn. My bad.
I can however tell you about the book, A Long Way From Chicago by Richard Peck. Have you read this book?? It was recently given to me. I had just finished a book and was looking for something else to read, so decided to give this one a go. Oh my word! I was laughing too many times and have decided that this is a book worth reading around the dinner table to your family after everyone is done eating! The grandma in this book is a hoot and the yarns she tells! Well, you'll just have to read and find out for yourself!
