Yarn Along

Well I missed 2 weeks of joining in on the yarn along! But I have a good excuse......vacation!! We just got back from sunny.....HOT!!......Florida. My brother had his wedding down there and then we had a condo for a week with my Mom and other brother......just the girls and I went and it was a blast!!
I did get some knitting done and a little bit of reading......tending to the needs of Hannah Grace kept me pretty busy on this vacation!

First here is a pic of the little miss in her shrug that I shared in an earlier yarn she is at the wedding
I also managed to find a lovely little yarn shop and while the girls were parasailing I ventured out and picked up some yummy yarns for more projects on my wish list!!!

Here is my beyond puerperium cardigan that I am working on. One more sleeve and then I will need to find some cute buttons to finish it up. Ravelry notes here. This should fit Hannah Grace this coming winter. My little sweetie is 5 months old's going by way too fast!!

My box of books from Amazon arrived and I started right in on Large Family Logistics by Kim Brenneman. I used to read Kim's blog when we were just becoming a large family and I can't wait to get into her book and get some new ideas on managing this house and tribe of kids!

I am also still plugging away on Brians sweater and I'm almost ready to split for the front and back.......I need to really get going on that one!!

Jump over to Small Things and see what everyone else is up too!! Happy knitting!!

I really like the yarn and the color is a really nice forest green called toad.....I've been knitting more then reading lately.....I'm waiting for a box from amazon with some new books for easy summer reading....can't wait!

I just finished these adorable booties for Hannah Grace! These are the first pair I ever made and I think I'm hooked!! I mean cute are these!! I made them to go with the shrug I knit her!!
