Yarn Along

Happy Wednesday! As usual I am joining Ginny over at Small Things for the weekly Yarn Along link up. I am so inspired on has become routine for me to sit down in the afternoon and as I am nursing Hannah Grace I click through all the linkys for the Yarn along while sipping my tea! So fun! And I have become acquainted with so many talented women and so many wonderful "to knit" list just keeps growing!!

And so because of this these adorable booties came off my needles yesterday! Thanks to Ginny herself who hosts this all affair! These were so fast to in the morning and one in the afternoon! Now my whole family wants booties and I think I know what I am making them all for Christmas!! I found a great pattern for big kids and adults here...... now I just need to get some nice chunky wool yarn to get going!!

I also cast on for this sweet dress called the Little Sister Dress. It is going pretty fast now but I had to rip it out twice in the beginning because I lost track of rows. I like this cotton yarn I am using by Rowen called Calm......and the colors are soft and so pretty!! (they look darker in this pic)

I am reading the same book as last week .....preparing for our homeschooling to begin again! Educating the Wholehearted Child is the perfect book to get my mind in gear for the upcoming year!

And I can't help but post this pic of my little one wearing a cute crocheted hat I made for her back in February while I was waiting for her arrival! I can't believe I only just started knitting then and now I am clearly an addict!! I so wish I had knitted for all my other children this way! We went to our county fair and I knew she would need a hat. Then I remembered that I had put a few aside that were bigger and this one fit perfect! Love shopping from things that I have made for her!! And from her look I think she likes it too!!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Knitting!!

It's time for the yarn along.....

Seems these days the only posts I am making are for the yarn along......well, summer is busy and I guess I'm glad Ginny does this yarn along or I would not be posting at all!!
The puerperium cardy from my last post is done and only needs buttons.....any ideas on places to find cute buttons??

So I've gone back to plugging away at Brians is coming along slowly but surely....I just keep praying that the size will be good. This is my first really big project.....I'm loving the yarn...Ravelry notes here.
I am about to cast on for a new project......I'll share that next week.....acute tunic for Hannah Grace....something to do when I get tired of the endless rounds on Brian's sweater!!
I began rereading my all time favorite homeschooling book.....Educating the Whole Hearted Child by the Clarksons. I love this book and know it will help me focus as we begin our 17th year homeschooling! My 4 year old little guy has me reading this cute little book over and over to Him.....It's the Lords Prayer.  I think he will have it memorized in no time!!
Make your way over to Small Things and join in the Yarn Along!! I have found so many new projects and loads of inspiration from all the creative ladies that link up every week!!
