Yarn Along

This week, I think I am calling my knitting "in progress" (which feels a little more generous than the title it deserves, which is plain old "unfinished").  I have four projects that are almost finished that require the littlest bit of attention, yet are still just lingering in their current state.  Come to think of it, there's a lot of things around here in that sort of state. When I lay out all of my knitting, it starts to look some sort of knitting infirmary.

I have two "In Threes" cardigans without buttons, one "Tiny Tea Leaves" without a sleeve, and a Milo Vest that is almost completed, save for an inch at the bottom, which will require a trip to the yarn store to remedy.  I'm thinking this week I'll have the time and energy to nurse them all to health, at which point I will only have one bit knitting project left: a sweater for my biggest girl, Zosia.  I've been eyeing Granny's Favorite (incidentally, I have already decided that when my own children hopefully have children one day, Granny will be my name of choice).  And if I finish that up and am still looking for something to keep my hands busy before the baby comes, I might make a Sunshine Day Baby Afghan, although it almost feels like I would need to make two for the sake of equanimity.

I've picked up my copy of Lark Rise to Candleford, and have started in on the second book it contains, On To Candleford.  So far, I'm actually liking this book even more than the first, as it seems to be a little more character driven, yet still contains the picturesque descriptions of life in a rural English hamlet .  I especially appreciate the descriptions of domestic life that it contains, as I can quite closely relate to the women of the hamlet!

Linking up with Ginny's Yarn Along today!

Baby knits are too fun! And I'm going to have to get a copy of Lark Rise to Candleford; I didn't realize it was a book series. Thank you for the recommendation! :)
