Yarn Along

9:17 AM

Hello there......has it really been a month since I last posted a yarn along???? Between my hard drive crashing and some knitting mishaps I guess I just could not bring myself to post......

I have been knitting.....well and ripping back......and knitting again. My henslowe shawl has been put aside for the past month.....I was almost done and then realized a mistake and so ripped it back......then got a few rows into the lace and made another miscount of my stitches and had to rip back again. Ok folks.....this is not a hard pattern! But I guess I have been too distracted lately and I need to focus when doing this part of the pattern......

In the meantime I found out my husbands cousin adopted a sweet new baby girl and so I had to knit her something small and cute! I decided on the Baby Kina which is all done except for buttons, blocking and weaving in ends! I had extra yarn and so also made a super quick baby bonnet that's almost done. Love knitting up new baby things!!

Oh I should also share that my Nellie sweater is waiting on the sidelines until I get more yarn to finish it......love this yarn......it's the perfect vintage look I wanted for this pattern! Yarn should arrive this week so hopefully I can share pics next week!

So even though I have not been posting for the yarn along there has been some knitting going on! But I must say not much reading....so nothing new to share on that.

 I did order some new yarn......My oldest just left last week to spend the month serving with YWAM in Thailand. (gulp) I am so proud of her and know that it is going to be a life changing experience for her. I thought I would knit and pray for her while she is gone! I found these beautiful lace mitts and I know she will love them! So I will pray over her and her team and knit up something she will love!

Head over to Small Things and check out what everyone is knitting and reading!!
