Because I've been listening to a book on my phone, I wasn't able to get a picture of it together with my knitting for today's Yarn Along. Instead, I've decided to take you on a tour of my Tuesday (yesterday) so you can "yarn along" with me through the day...
Oh, about 6ish a.m. -- dark and cold outside but warm by the fire with my sweetie. Sipping coffee and chatting while I knit on a pair of fingerless mitts to go with a beanie. He's been praying with me in the morning before the kids come down for breakfast which is a nice way to start the day...
2:30 in the afternooon -- If you've followed me on IG the past few days, you know we're enjoying spring-like temps. It's been in the low 60s since Sunday, and since I had to be out with AnnaLynn for her violin lesson, I thought it would be fun to paint my toes and wear my linen pants and my sandals. That's my knitting tote on the left. Knitting during music lessons is a must!
And, finally, while Dan was at a church meeting last night, I settled in with Amanda and a glass of wine to finish that fingerless mitt. (Psssst, if you haven't checked out Amanda's podcast yet, you must!) AnnaLynn thought the mitt needed a thumb, so I ripped back and added one. :)
Now, I found it interesting that I also recently discovered that moths had gotten to my hitchhiker as well as my tea leaves. Arrrrggggg. Do I still have even the tiniest bit of that gorgeous Madtosh my hitchhiker was knit with? Nope. Thankfully I do have a little wool left to repair my tea leaves. :( Would love any helpful hints you all might want to share about dealing with moths. Thanks in advance!
Edit: Ooops! Forgot to mention my book! The kids and I are currently reading The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle for our humanities class. They weren't looking forward to it ("it's for little kids..."), but I've been having to listen since they're hoarding our print copy. :)
