yarn-along 3

Joining Ginny at small things for a yarn along again. This week, I have just been teaching myself to do things I haven't yet mastered. The creme colored yarn is my attempt to learn how to increase. It took watching a you tube clip for me to get it, but get it I did. I am making a coin purse for my daughter. The second swatch, hanging from my statue, is my first attempt at switching from one color to the next. It worked really well, and I know I will like being able to knit multi-colored items. The book is another cook book. I really do read something other than cook books, but I am trying to pull together a good menu rotation so that menu planning will be a more streamlined effort. I am re-reading Nourishing Traditions. Especially paying attention to the section on lacto-fermented products and making broths. I would like to make several batches of meat broth to keep on hand. I still haven't started unpicking my scarf, I just haven't had any time to really concentrate on it. Someday!


  1. That's great that you are just taking the time to work on new knitting skills!

  2. I have been learning to knit with youtube also. I haven't tried two colors yet; that is scheduled for March. Your knitting looks great. I too read cookbooks, I think they are fun. I get tired of cooking the same thing all the time.

  3. Wonderful and I've heard that is a wonderful book!

  4. Good for you for learning a new technique. I use youtube all the time for knitting help!

  5. Thank you all! I am enjoying learning some new techniques, especially being able to increase and decrease!I am going to try to learn how to knit cables next. I might need a lot of you tube help!
