Yarn Along

Well, there still isn't that much going on around here for the Yarn Along.  But that's not stopping me :) 

I finally finished the sleeve on the cardi - so glad I went with short sleeves or I might never have finished!  Now all it needs are some sweet, girly buttons.  I think I'll look for those on our upcoming trip southward.  I also got my scarf fixed.  That means I might be able to make some progress on it :)  And it really wasn't that tough a fix - I managed without a single curse word. 

Other than those wee things I've been planning projects.  Christmas is coming, my Ravelry queue is full of ideas, and we're visiting family soon which means I can order yarn.  But first I have to make my plans.  So much fun!  I think there will be something on that list for me too ;-)  (I'm really loving the "watermelon" colorway from Knit Picks but what to knit it into...)

My reading has been more productive this week.  I finished All Wound Up.  Loved it.  (But then, who doesn't love the Yarn Harlot?  Well, what knitter anyway.)  And I started The Aloha Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini.  I've also been dabbling in Itsy Bitsy Yoga by Helen Garabedian in hopes of helping the Smallest One to be more comfortable.  We're trying to figure out the gas/reflux/allergy stuff - poor baby has been miserable and that makes Mama miserable.  With any luck a little yoga will help at least a little.  And of course there is always a stack of books waiting.

I just finished the Yarn Harlot too and just love her! Anyone who can make me laugh out loud rates high in my book!

oh I hope the baby feels better soon. My son used to spit up all the time! Never figured out why but boy did I do lots of laundry :)

I love planning my Christmas knitting. I have steered clear of Knit Picks lately in fear of what I may buy..

Awww! I hope the yoga helps out your newest little one, too.

I love Jennifer Chiaverini's quilting series, too.
