Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along ::

Joining Ginny of Small Things

Whoopee! I finished something! I feel like it has been forever since I have completed anything. I love little projects. The little clutch bag turned out well and I really like the color. The fabric will be the lining. This will be added to my Etsy shop which I hope to open soon. I keep saying that but I am always so busy with other things. It will happen. I am still working on the cozy nook blanket. But I am starting a teapot cozy this week. I got a new teapot and it looked naked on my counter so of course I went on Ravelry and found the perfect one! 

I finished reading The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott this week too. I haven't read a book that fast in awhile but it was super good and I loved it. I highly recommend it if you like historical fiction with a dash of literary masters. I have a copy that I am more than willing to share with anyone who is interested. I have a new stack of library books to dive into this week. I think I may start with The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers. It is a work of fiction based upon his time in Iraq during the Iraq War. It will be a tough read for me because it is a deep subject but we are intimately tied with the military and I was drawn to this book. If it turns out to be a little too much for me then I'll have to start in on Edna O'Brien, The Country Girls Trilogy. I read her work in college and really loved it so feeling a little nostalgic I picked it up again.  

Happy Knitting! xo. 


  1. Your little clutch bag is so pretty, I love the colors.
    That is a great idea to dress your teapot, I should follow your example and do the same.
    Have a great Wednesday.

  2. Love the little clutch and t he fabric is for the lining is great. The teapot cozy is great!

  3. Hurray! I love the color it's a great orange and the fabric is perfect!!

  4. Such cute projects; I, too, enjoy the ones that roll off the needles rather quickly. :) And best of wishes to you on your Etsy shop...hope you open soon and do well! It's not that hard, I promise. :) Blessings, ~Lisa

  5. Love both projects!!!, do you really have a book to share? :)

    1. Yes! When I find a book that is super good I hate to keep it to myself:)
