A Rainy ‘Yarn Along’ Day

On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

A few weeks have passed since I joined Ginny. I’ve been knitting, but also seem to have little computer overload and haven’t been posting much.

A Wallaby sweater knit from Coffee Beenz is for a little guy
whose mom says “GO DUCKS.”
Just a few stitches to finish under the arms then in the mail it goes.

A baby afghan that needs just the weaving in to be finished.
Baby due January 6, can’t believe I almost finished
and it isn’t the night before I want to gift it.

A close up of the edging. It’s not really exciting.

I’m excited, this shawl is almost finished.
The edging was to be 2 inches wide,
but I’m just going to use up the yarn,
one and a half balls left –less than 200 yards.

September circle cowl is about 75% done.
I’ll make my Christmas deadline.

Thinking about hats for 6 grandsons, not sure if that isn’t too big a bite of yarn.

I’m reading Karen Harper’s Down to the Bone, starting chapter 5.
“Tightly written story….Fascinating blend of Amish and modern ways.”“Rendezvous
Quote on the dedication page:
“There is no past we can bring back by the longing for it, there is only the eternally new now that builds and creates itself out of the elements of the past.”“Johann Goethe

  1. You have so many lovely things near completion. I have the pattern for Wallabys, but have never seen one in real life. It looks great!

    • Thank you

    • I’ve made several, usually have one on the needles for fun – a grandson said he out grew the last one I made, hint, hint

  2. You have so many gorgeous projects on the go here. Lovely… and all kinds of wonderful.

    • thank you
