Yarn Along- awww, so cute!


This week I picked up this super soft skein of yarn that has itty bitty baby written all over it.  I am making it into an In Threes Baby Cardigan.  I don't know what baby girl will end up with this one- though I am in a stage of life where I cannot have too many baby gifts at the ready.  And since we never know what Safe Families child will land in our house next, I think that gives me an excuse to knit baby clothes at all time.  Bummer!  But no baby in mind right now, I was just in the mood for a pattern that knits up cute and quick, something I've knit before, and something I could knit on the porch swing while the kids play in the sandbox.  So it may need a bit of sand dusted off before it is all finished...I think it will still be snuggly.

As for what I am reading- mostly blogs this week!  I have ordered a new book, but somehow Amazon Prime failed me (for the first time in a very long time- still love me some Amazon Prime!)  So I'll have to dig into that when it finally arrives.  As for now, I'll just knit on!

Linking up with Ginny at the Yarn Along this week!

  2. Dropping by from the yarn along. I love baby knits. They are so cute and soft and they knit up so incredibly fast! I like that the progress it makes me feel in the middle of a never ending project!

  5. I will have to go look up that pattern. I am itching to knit now that my baby blanket is done and headed to Ecuador. I was thinking something that was a top down raglan might be fun, no seaming! We adopted 2.5 years ago. I wish I was able to foster, been struggling with my health and Graces needs have made out family perfect- her older siblings are all adults. Visiting from Yarn along.
