Yarn Along

Joining in over at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along. Can you find my book and project amongst the sea of stuffed animals? Finn's room was a bit messy this morning!!
On a good note, I have finally finished reading Freedom by Jonathon Franzen. Good thing, as my book club is meeting to discuss it tonight! I started reading the Yarn Harlot: Secret Life of  Knitter Monday night and I am already about 2/3 through. It is a fast and funny read.
And, I am still knitting the same baby shorts for Miss Phoebe from Debbie Bliss' Essential Baby. I am about 3/4 through now, but since cool weather is approaching, I had better get a move on. I am hoping next week's yarn along will bring pictures of finished shorts! (fingers crossed) Pin It Now!


  1. The sweater is lovely and I could spot it a mile away because it is pretty!!

  2. That yarn is just the perfect color. Perfect! I love that color blue, but for some reason always stash up on fabric in that tone, and stash up in yarn in browns and reds. Go figure...

  3. You can do it, you can do it! (Finish the shorts, that is.)
