Yarn Along- Confession

I lose my knitting a lot.  If I had a dollar for every time I asked, "Where IS my knitting? Has anyone seen it?" I could afford REALLY nice yarn, and a set of those interchangeable needles I've been eyeing.  I am constantly carting my knitting around- in the diaper bag, on the shelf, in my purse, in the car.  Add in a child or four who ALSO like to carry it around and it is a wonder that I get ANYTHING knit without it being totally unravelled.  Am I the only one?  

In a laundry basket in the garage

Stashed on the shelf

Apparently used as a lead rope.  Have you ever tried to untangle yarn from a spring?! 
I have made some progress on my baby sweater, but not a ton.  Nice to have a project without a deadline.  As for reading, I have just started to dig into A Sane Woman's Guide to Raising a Large Family. I hear that it is full of good advice, and best enjoyed with a mug of hot chocolate...so I have high hopes!  Happy knitting!  

Linking up with Ginny again this week over at her Yarn Along.

  2. Such cute pictures! At the moment there is yarn tied around my rocking chair tethering a dump truck to it....so I can totally relate! That book sounds interesting, with 8 of my own so far and lots of days where sanity is no where to be found it might be a good read! Blessings!

  3. I, too, am laughing at the lead rope...my daughter is a horse lover, too. :) As I told a friend this past week, life with littles is messy -- a good messy! Glad you found your knitting. :)

  5. Two springs ago I sewed two small with zippers. One has a loop. I have a knitting project in each. It helps keep them intact and they are bright and easier to spot and grab and throw in a bag on my way out the door. The dog was a problem for me for awhile. Stealing the ball and running to play.
