Yarn Along

I'm in a bit of a crunch: I am hoping to give the girls their tiny tea leaves for the equinox, which means I have under two weeks to knit, finish, and block (which in these humid days has been taking me at least two days)! I cast on Lily's yesterday, and I'm hoping to have the body done by Friday, which feels a bit ambitious seeing as how I can only usually knit during our afternoon family quiet time or after the little ones are in bed. We'll see if it works out!

And to make matters worse, I am entirely pulled into My Antonia, which I absolutely adore so far: as the daughter of Eastern European immigrants myself, it is quite shocking to re-imagine the American narrative with my own type of people in the leading roles. I am torn between reading and knitting, we'll see which wins out.

Joining in with the Yarn Along again this week!

Awwwww cute baby legs ;)
I find the smaller projects travel quite well- so I can carry them around the house so I can work on them whenever possible :)

How clever! I think I need to work on being able to knit without focusing on it... with this sweater, that should be easier once I finish the yoke. :-)

Adele said...

Two of my favorite things, too! Thanks, Lori ann!
