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 along.....here 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 today.......it'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!!

Hi Alisa. I noticed you left a nice comment on my blog at Arrow Acres. Thanks for checking us out! Your little girl is beautiful. And I love this little sweater you started. I think it might have to be my next baby sweater for my little man. I'll have to keep coming back to your blog.

What lovely knitting projects! You are quite an ambitious knitter. :) I'm just expecting our second, but I still don't seem to have time to really dive into knitting.

The little pink things are wonderful! We got packages from Amazon the last few days around here too, what fun to open them and read new books. Enjoy!

Wow! It's nice to know there is a book on managing a large family. Thanks for sharing! I am new to knitting and blogging. Very impressed with your even stitches. Someday...

Your little cardigan is gorgeous, and so is your baby girl! It really does go by too fast. Mine will be a year in September. Sigh.

Beautiful knitting and beautiful baby! I love the pink sweater. Makes me wish my little girl was still a baby! Thanks for the book suggestion! I think I need to look into it. When our family grew one more last year things got crazy in our home and I struggle to keep it all under control. Maybe the book you posted today is just what I need right now. :)
