My life with my farmer and our six children. Made possible by massive amounts of caffeine.

yarn along 4
My fourth yarn along, hosted by Ginny at small things. This is the very beginnings of a baby hat for a neighbor, who is due in a few weeks. Since they do not know the gender, I am using a neutral colored yarn, but if baby is a girl, I will add a little ribbon or something. The currents reads are Unplanned by Abby Johnson and Knitting Around by Elizabeth Zimmerman. Unplanned was difficult to read, yet it was also riveting, and I finished the book in one day, as is evidenced by the pile of laundry in my laundry room! Knitting Around is charming, and I wish I could just pick up the phone and ask Elizabeth Zimmerman for advice-she sounds so warm and kind! I also learned how to do a yarn over (which I have done on accident whilst learning to knit) and am trying to do some more decorative stitches. That is all for this week!
