Yarn Along

Come join us for our weekly yarn along with Ginny at Small Things.

I'm still working on Magical Beginnings by Deepak Chopra.  I'm realizing that as much as I enjoy reading the reality is that there is only so much time in the day for me to get everything done. Reading unfortunately seems to be the one thing that is falling by the wayside more and more. I'd rather take those few minutes a day to knit. I also stared on Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer.  Both of these are due back to the library next week and I've already renewed them once so I need to actually finish them!

I finished a Toasty Sleeper this week. I made it using manos del uruguay maxima in aquas.  I love this yarn.  It's very comparable to a malabrigo merino worsted but it is so soft and the colors are lovely.  You can see my rav notes on the sleeper here. The sleeper is super cute but oh so tiny.  Hopefully the baby isn't too big! I had bought 2 skeins of the variegated yarn which was more than enough so I took the extras and made a Small Things Bonnet. It was kind of a pain to do this pattern in 2 colors but it came out nicely.  I made the newborn size and it too is tiny so now I have a nice tiny outfit!  Now it's time to search for the perfect button! I think I am going to try a pair of these booties but I haven't bought the pattern yet. Hopefully if I do make them they are tiny enough to match the outfit. Otherwise next up is an Owlie Sleep Sack to match the milo I made last year.

Happy knitting and reading!
