Yarn Along

8:30 AM


My knitting has gotten adventuresome these past 2 weeks......I just have not had the time to post much! I decided to join in on the West Knits Mystery Shawl knit Along on ravelry, never did a mystery knit along before but I am really having fun with it! My oldest daughter Emily joined the fun too! I only have 3 more rows to be done with clue 2 and there are 2 more clues to go. I am enjoying the knitting process, learning some new techniques along the way and loving my yarn choice! I am using Cascade Yarns Heritage series.....It is beginning to look interesting and I can't wait to see what the next clues are! The community on the message board is so friendly and helpful, a great group to hang with! What do you think of it??? Interesting right? I am thinking that this is probably not a shawl I would have picked to knit, normally I like my lacey and vintage looking shawls, but I am liking it because it is so different and not my normal style! Ravelry notes here


Last week I finally finished Hannah Grace's Nellie Sweater......I love it! A perfect light weight sweater for the beginning of fall! And that Louisa Harding Yarn was a great choice for a vintage sweater......


I also finally got the pearl beads on Emily's mitts. She arrived home from Thailand safe and sound and these are the mitts I made for her as I prayed for her during that missions trip. I saw the pattern and they are soooo her......she is thrilled with them and totally agrees!







On the reading side of things I am knee deep in new homeschool books......trying to get organized for the upcoming school year.....reading teachers guides and excerpts from the kids reading books.....not very exciting for you but very for me and the kids!

I'm joining Ginny for the weekly Yarn Along! Happy Knitting!!
