Yarn Along

8:03 AM

Happy Wednesday! As usual I am joining Ginny over at Small Things for the weekly Yarn Along link up. I am so inspired on Weds.........it has become routine for me to sit down in the afternoon and as I am nursing Hannah Grace I click through all the linkys for the Yarn along while sipping my tea! So fun! And I have become acquainted with so many talented women and so many wonderful patterns......my "to knit" list just keeps growing!!

And so because of this these adorable booties came off my needles yesterday! Thanks to Ginny herself who hosts this all affair! These were so fast to knit.......one in the morning and one in the afternoon! Now my whole family wants booties and I think I know what I am making them all for Christmas!! I found a great pattern for big kids and adults here...... now I just need to get some nice chunky wool yarn to get going!!

I also cast on for this sweet dress called the Little Sister Dress. It is going pretty fast now but I had to rip it out twice in the beginning because I lost track of rows. I like this cotton yarn I am using by Rowen called Calm......and the colors are soft and so pretty!! (they look darker in this pic)

I am reading the same book as last week .....preparing for our homeschooling to begin again! Educating the Wholehearted Child is the perfect book to get my mind in gear for the upcoming year!

And I can't help but post this pic of my little one wearing a cute crocheted hat I made for her back in February while I was waiting for her arrival! I can't believe I only just started knitting then and now I am clearly an addict!! I so wish I had knitted for all my other children this way! We went to our county fair and I knew she would need a hat. Then I remembered that I had put a few aside that were bigger and this one fit perfect! Love shopping from things that I have made for her!! And from her look I think she likes it too!!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Knitting!!
