Yarn Along


:: Yarn Along ::

Joining Ginny of Small Things





The second sweater of 2013 is complete! The In Threes: A Baby Cardigan turned out beautifully. It is a bit big on my youngest but she will be able to wear it in the fall too. It was so much fun to knit. I think I will knit the smallest size next and put it away for future babies. I like it so much that I think I will knit another one for my youngest gal in a different color. Below is the beginning of a cat from Mamma4earth patterns. I am making cats for both my girls for Valentine's Day. I love her patterns because they are easy to follow and have wonderful pictures to aid in the process! 




I am reading The Uninvited Guests by Sadie Jones. I just began it so I don't have much of an opinion about it yet. I am still slowly pushing my way through Simplicity Parenting. It is enlightening and reaffirms my parenting beliefs. 




I just got my order of chickadee yarn from Quince & Co.  in the color of parsley. I am using their pattern of a simple cardigan. I began winding the yarn last night by candlelight because our area lost power. It was rather spiritual and lovely. My husband teased me and said that I was secretly excited because I could knit by candlelight like my ancestors before me. ( he knows me so well ) 



Happy Knitting! Please feel free to leave a link to your Yarn Along!

    1. It was fun and my husband was listening to commentary of the Battle of Gettysburg on his computer (he is a history buff and I was a high school history teacher). I grew up very close to Gettysburg so it was kind of magical:)

    2. I lived in Maryland for four months years ago, the people I stayed with were history buffs. They set me up to watch the Battle of Gettysburg one night when they were out and then took me on the tour...it was amazing!
