Yarn Along

9:55 AM

Well I missed last weeks yarn along......I was still pretty much where I left off at the last yarn along so there was not anything new to show.....but this week is a different story! My skein of yarn that I needed to finish my shalom cardigan arrived and I have since finished my very first sweater for myself......yes really! I have selfishly knit myself a sweater and can I just say I love it! It fits beautifully and feels wonderful on.......I am so enjoying wearing it and now am in search of the next project for me! Any suggestions????? What are your favorite sweater knits?

Well I was not totally selfish this week as I whipped up an adorable milo for Hannah Grace for Valentines Day......this was such a fun knit! So I cast on a big boy size for Caleb......he has requested owls on his cable.

 hmmmmm.....sorry for the abundance of baby photos I just could not help myself.....my little one turned 11 months this week and I can see time just flying by!

I have been doing more knitting then reading these days. Free time is hard to come by and I seem to grab my needles more then my book.........I need to find another good read for my iphone so I can listen and knit as well! I'm sure as I scroll through everyone's posts today I will get some  good ideas on books to check out! Happy knitting!!!
