Yarn Along

{ Yarn Along }






It's August and after many hot weeks I have finally come around to knitting. I am one of those weird people who enjoys cooling temperatures and falling leaves. We have had such a busy summer and so many changes have taken place that I put down the needles for a bit. Now, that things are settling into a routine with daily homemaking, the start of homeschooling in the near future, and knitting. The girls both asked for new hats with a felt flower attached. They didn't even wait for my response but dug into my yarn stash to find the perfect color. I, of course, obliged them and began knitting. Just working on some simple hats with a ribbed brim and of course a felt flower when it is done. 

I am almost done reading Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt. It has been on my shelf for years and I finally decided to read it. I really liked and it is certainly a colorful novel. My husband is going to read it next and then we'll try the movie version. I got a few new books out of the library and will be starting something new in a few days. I am also slowing pouring over the pages of Taproot. I used to look at this magazine and dream of the future on our little piece of land and now that dream will become a reality in a just over a year as we look to settle onto our little piece of land. 

It is good to be back and enjoy this little Wednesday tradition. 

Happy Knitting.

  1. I need to read that book, and I am one of those odd balls that loves snow and winter! I just tolerate the summer. I'm getting better at it too!

  2. I"m waiting patiently for falling leaves. We've been lucky in that it hasn't been to extremely hot here. I loved Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The movie was fun too. I have wanted to visit that area since I read the book (and I still haven't made it there).

  4. I find I can only knit socks when it's real hot out. We haven't had a terribly hot summer so I have been able to work on a couple of shawls (tried it at the beach last week and it was a bit heavy so I switched back to the sock!).
