Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along ::






I am on my last clue of the mystery KAL that I started in January. ( I am a slow knitter and I had a baby so you know) I am so excited to see how it turns out! I want it to be done for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival so I can wear it there. Oh yes, the festival is only 2 weeks away and I have saved my pennies to splurge on some wonderful fibers and scout out spinning wheels. I finished my youngest gal's sweater and she loved it. She proceeded to tell everyone at church that "Mama made my sweater" and I was secretly bursting at the seams with happiness.  I have decided that my dishcloths cannot stand another round in the washing machine so it is time for some easy knitting. 

I finished reading The Movement of Stars and can I just say....read it! I wasn't so impressed at first but I kept forging ahead and I am so glad I did. What a great story and it makes me want to buy a telescope and start studying the night skies. I have my hubby half convinced that it would make a great Mother's Day gift. I just started The Signature of All Things so we'll see what happens. I always have a back up if it doesn't work out. 



And if you want some area information, let me know.

  6. Aw is that the In Threes cardigan? It's such a lovely pattern and yours looks great. It's sweet that your little girl was so proud of her mama-makes. Last time I finished a cardigan for my youngest she went round telling everyone that her Daddy had made it because he sewed 3 buttons on the front! Cheek!
