Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along ::

Joining Ginny of Small Things

2013 has brought on a flurry of ideas and projects that could be completed this year. I am keeping a journal of knitting ideas for the year so that I don't feel lost once I complete a project. The list is getting long but the possibilities are endless. I am working on In Threes A Baby Cardigan for my youngest gal in a cheery shade of blue and a set of On the Go-veralls in a earthy mustard. I am starting work this week on my bee keeper's quilt (finally, I have been a bit delayed). I also have a lovely little bag to carry all knitting around town. (A handmade gift from my mother in law when my husband and I were first married). I am still reading Flight Behavior and I am looking through some gardening books because the garden season will be upon us here in the south. It is time to start thinking about what we will be growing. 

What are you knitting? 



  1. Those go-veralls are great!!! Love your colour choices. I have the backyard homestead, great book!

    1. Thank you. I know mustard is not a "little girl" color but I do love it so much! I am excited to start gardening but since the temps are unusual these days (some warm, some cold) I think we'll start with seedlings in the house.

  2. You sound like you are going to have a fun year project wise! I would love to make a quilt but need to learn to sew first! - it's on my list for 2013.
    Love the vibrant colours you have chosen for your knitting.

  3. I am always drawn to "earthy mustard". I look really nice in that color ;) I have the Kingsolver book on my to read list in my head.

  4. so what do you think of barbara's book? i am reading it too and loving it. and the backyard homestead is a great book! love the colors of the yarn. :)

  5. I love that cardi - how have I not seen it before?! - and love the bold colors you chose for both!

  6. Oh another one for the bee keepers quilt. It starts to pop up on people's lists for 2013 everywhere nowadays. I'm making hexipuffs too...
