Yarn Along

8:59 AM

Well I had to miss last weeks yarn along......not because I wasn't knitting or reading but my laptop crashed and so I am now on week 2 with no computer.......well, I do have the kids computer but it just is not the same. I am hoping to have a new hard drive and be up and running again sometime next week.

So I come to you this week from my kids computer with no photoshop and only iphone pics to share my projects. Which I guess I really should not be complaining about!

I finished Hannah Grace's summer tee which was a fast and easy knit. I love how it came out and I can see myself knitting up a couple more and I am thinking of maybe doing it longer as a dress with shorter puff sleeves.....too cute! (on a side note I also made those pants to match......my second sewing project ever! The big but baby pants pattern is easy and quick....even for a beginner like me)

I also finished a Birthday request for my son Jacob who is turning 10 in June. He has been asking for slippers and we found this pattern Family of Slippers and decided to try our hand at felting! Here are the before and after photos.......we went from a rather large pair of gigantic looking socks to thick and cozy wool slippers that he is thrilled with! Felting was fun and it turned out great even with my front loading machine.

I have made good progress on my Cinnamon shawl......I am up to the lace part and it is coming along nicely. I keep thinking about my spring cardigan but I have not picked it up again......might be next springs cardigan at this rate!

Reading has been light this week.....nothing new to share, I am thinking of putting another audio book on my iphone and i am hoping to find some good suggestions from this weeks yarn along! Joining over at Ginny's as usual.......happy knitting!!
