On my needles...
Phew! I wasn't sure I was going to be able to share this week due to problems with loading pictures and then Picassa wasn't working...but, thankfully, here I am and here are my pictures. *smile* So happy to be able to share in this week's Yarn Along after missing out the past few weeks. :) My needles haven't been very productive the past week or so, but I have picked them up now and then to add a few rows to the adorable newborn socks I'll be gifting the next time someone I know has a baby boy. :)
Current reads include some early morning devotional reading, my Bible, some books for garden inspiration, and our current family read-aloud: The Annotated Hobbit. I'm still indulging myself by re-reading the Little House books and have to admit that I'm enjoying them tremendously! It humors me that Laura makes the point, over and over, that Mary was always such a good little girl, but that she, herself, was a bit naughty.
My teas leaves, FINALLY finished, has become a favorite sweater; I'm hoping to cast on another in a yarn that would lend itself to springtime temps and cool summer evenings -- any suggestions?
Did you notice my new knitting bag? It's HUGE! And I picked it up for only $3.50 at our local Goodwill store -- score! It's perfect for holding several projects and for taking along with me when we're out at the kids' music lessons.
That adorable knit dolly was a Christmas gift I knit for Charlotte. I love the way she turned out. :) Other Christmas knitting included the scarf pictured above for a dear friend (and two others like it for other dear friends). And, finally, that's Charlotte modeling a larger version of my 1-2-3 Baby Beanie (I still need to update the pattern to include the larger size I made for her).
Ravelry notes for everything here is over on my project page if you care to take a look! I do have a couple new patterns that I'm hoping to finish writing up very soon -- so exciting!
So how's your yarn garden blooming? What's new in your world? Please share in the comments and join me at Ginny's. :)
