Yarn Along



Last week seems to have kick started my knitting urge. These days, there is little to make me feel more productive than sitting down with some needles in hand (and with a curious almost-4 year old at my side with her "needles," which, these days, are a set of colored pencils). This week I just finished up a puerperium cardigan for the new baby. All it needs to be done is some wooden buttons and a darning needle (and some blocking!). I used a slightly heavier weight yarn, and my guage was running a bit big, so as it turns out, this cardigan will probably be just perfect for the fall... Those summer babies are hard to knit for!

These are also the days when two sweet little girls will cuddle in next to me with books in hand, requesting story after story, which I happily read aloud. My "free reading" has mainly consisted of some birth practitioner reading. I never seem to get tired of it!

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is up to at Ginny's yarn along!

Such a sweet sweater. I wonder if I'll get to knit some sweet baby items for grandchildren one day.

I am getting excited for you and for this little guy to join the world...I can't wait to meet him even if only over the internet!

Now that is a wonderful pattern. I love the color of the yarn. I look forward to seeing pictures of your little guy in it surrounded by colorful autumn leaves!

All that baby sweetness. Glad you don't get sick of your birth practitioner reading- must mean it's a true calling.
Take care!

I love that pattern! I think I will have to start one for my friend's baby—due in October—as soon as I clear a few more things off my "to-knit" list! Yours looks just lovely... xo

The pattern was great: simple to follow and quick to knit up! I highly recommend it.
