Joining in with Ginny at Small Things of the Yarn Along. ~ "Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other peop
le are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~"
**I'm sorry for linking multiple times, I was working on my mobile device and it went whacko and I couldn't get it to erase the first link up! **
**First, I need your help! About 2 Yarn Alongs ago, someone posted a link to a beautiful toddler cardigan that they made for their daughter. It was rainbow colored and lovely. I remember it had a link to a pattern. I cannot find it for the life of me, so if this was you or you remember it, please let me know? I would love to make that for my Wee Girl. Thanks!**
Off the needles and STILL on the baby girl:
|Willow is still wearing her Kimono (pattern HERE) Longies that I made for her months ago (read more about those HERE) despite the growth spurt and despite the fact that she tries to take every.single.article.of.clothing.off.and be.naked.all.of.the.time.even.in.public! ha!|
OUT OF THE DYE BATH:
Since I keep naming my dyed wool after song titles (Man of Constant Sorrow HERE, Purple Rain, etc) , I decided that these 2 should follow suit.
|I dyed some more wool this week, Merino Superwash Fingering Weight, luscious and lovely|
|I did 2 560 yard skeins|
|The one on the left is called "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone" and the one on the right is "Sunshine" (smile!)|
OFF THE NEEDLES:
|Using my hand dyed yarn Man of Constant Sorrow I knitted my sweet (YO) girlfriend, who is expecting her sweet baby at the end of the month, a newborn hat. It looks HUGE here but trust me, it is teeny. I double stranded with some brown Fisherman's Wool for this hat. I planned on making her a pair of longies to match but I messed up on the gauge, and instead (following pic) ended up with a pair for my sweet Willow instead. I hope to still make her longies if I have enough Merino left over :)|
|Willow's longies. Just a bit more on the leg and then the end is in sight! So warm and toasty for this wonderful cool fall here in the Ville|
ON THE NIGHT STAND:
|I received this awesome book from my Mama for my birthday last week! I love every single itty bitty inch of this book!! My soon to be project will be a "fern" sweater for Willow. YOW! I am excited!!!!!|
|this book captured me from the jump (midwife in training that I am ) and I loved each and every twist and turn and I highly recommend it!|
|sweet girl ready for the Farmers' Market. She is donning her new hat made by my sweet friend Kerri|
IN THE BARN AND WOOL:

|that same sweet pink hat friend made me these awesome crochet lovelies! I can't crochet so this is amazing to me. a phone cover and a scrubby! yay!|
|and an Alpaca hat for the 10 year old birthday boy|
