Yarn Along

8:39 AM

I missed last weeks yarn along......I had good intentions of getting a post up but some how the time was just never there for me to sit and do it. I have decided I really like having this log of my knitting and reading.....it is fun to go back and look at my progress and also all I am learning as I continue to grow in this habit {addiction??} of mine! I have been knitting about a year and a half now and I wonder what I ever did before it?

My eldest daughter and I have signed up for a beginner spindle spinning class.......this is next on my list of things I must learn! I am looking at kick spindles right now and my creative husband has promised me a home made one from his wood shop soon!! I am so excited about this new learning adventure and can't wait to wear something with wool that I actually spun.....how fun is that!! My dream is a spinning wheel......I need to start saving my pennies!!!

So this week on the needles.........my mystery shawl is sooooo close to being done....but I have run out of yarn. From what I have read lots of people ran out and so the #'s must have been off to begin with. So now I am waiting for the yarn to arrive. This picture isn't the best but you can at least see how it is turning out! I love it and can see me wrapped up this fall all warm and cozy! Such a unique design and lot's of fun to knit!!

This little poncho that I shared a couple weeks ago has been ripped out and restarted 3 times.....switching patterns each time. Do you ever find that those quick little projects sometimes turn into more of a project then anticipated? I am finally happy with the way this one is turning out and I am just about to cast off the bottom and start working on the hood....I am thinking I want to put a little knitted ruffle on the bottom edge....thoughts???

Hannah Grace is almost 18 months now and is in need of some bigger soakers so I also knitted up a new one for her in some 100 pure wool that I just received. Can I tell you how much I love this wool?? So soft and squishy.....perfect for a soaker! I used the free curly purly pattern and it was a quick easy knit. Ravelry notes

I wanted to post this little bible study book. A group of ladies that I homeschool with have been doing this study over the last 5 weeks and it is really good. It is all about biblical beauty and what it means to be a biblical beautiful woman. A very powerful message here and one our daughters need to hear as well! It's called Beauty by the Book by Laurie Cole

I'm thinking Christmas gifts  list lately......and what I need to get going on the needles! Anyone else having these thoughts??
