tending my yarn garden...
I'm a day late and don't have a lot of time, but thought I'd share what's on my needles anyway. AnnaLynn and I have two holiday bazaars this year; the first was last Saturday and the second is the Saturday after Thanksgiving at the end of November -- glad there are four weeks in-between! Lots of crocheted washcloths and soap cozies being made as well as crocheted beanies for the sale. We did well at bazaar #1 and hope to do even better at #2. If you're local and planning to attend the Prairie High School bazaar on November 30th, be sure to find us in the main gym and say hello!
Current knits include my tea leaves which is slowly, row by row, growing and a new beanie pattern that will include matching fingerless mitts. Current reading is historical -- I'm enjoying knitting while Daniel reads aloud to me from Of Plymouth Plantation. The Wilder book is my easy (way easy) reading. The copy pictured above is part of a set my dad gave to my sisters and me when we were just girls (see the price? only $1.50!).
So how's your yarn garden blooming? Looks like there's no Yarn Along this week; but I think Ginny has a great excuse - in fact, the best excuse ever!! :)
