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.


  1. Oh I had to laugh at the lead rope. Oh the joys of little ones.

  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. :)

  4. Hahahaha!! I love the horse one. That totally would have happened in my house too.

  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.

    1. Sorry typing on the kindle And it finishes words weirdly. Sewed two pouches 8x10 or smaller.
