BSJ knit along update

I have been knitting like crazy and have gotten pretty far.......I never would have been able to do this pattern without the help of this knit along found here. I am so thankful for both of these women and the time they are taking to walk us all through this!!
I can finally see what this sweater is going to look like! And I think the size is going to be great for my little Hannah Grace this coming fall!
I still need to put together the other 2 sweaters I made, it's just easier for me to knit and nurse then it is to sew together things.....I will post pics when I finish them!

Yarn Along and my baby surprise jacket

 Today I am posting for the Yarn Along and with it an update on my baby surprise jacket. I went to the local yarn shop and picked up this wonderful organic cotton yarn to do the sweater in. I am loving how it feels as I work with it and think it will make a wonderful jacket for Hannah Grace! I have made so much pink for her that I went with this very warm beige color for this project.

I picked up this book last week and have just started it.....hoping it will guide me into a more organized life. I wish just reading it would change things around here but I think it's going to take more than that!

Yarn Along

Well, it's been a while but I am still over here and I've been working on project life in bits and pieces.....more recently I've been taking to knitting! And so I am joining in the Yarn Along over at small things so I can share what is on my needles and also what is in my book basket!!

I am currently working on a the playtime hoodie that I found over on I am knitting this one up for Caleb and I am really liking the way it is turning out. I also just found the spud and chloe blog....... I ordered some yarn and will be starting spud the sheep very soon! I would love to get all these cute animals knitted up for Hannah Grace, so she can have them all to play with when she is a little older. It is an adorable book with a cute story in amongst the patterns.

Here is a pic of the sweet Chloe shrug I just finished. Hannah Grace wore this over her Easter dress and it fit perfectly!! This was my first attempt at knitting a sweater and I am really happy with how it turned out! Thanks to Emily (my 17 year old and amazing knitter!) for being there to guide me through it all!!
I will leave you with a little picture of my cutie in her Easter shrug!
