Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along. This past week I have made some progress on Phoebe's sweater, which is the crossover top from Debbie Bliss' Essential Baby, however, with all of the traveling to and from Orcas Island, I had hoped to get a bit more done. I now am about 2/3 finished with the back piece.
I finished reading The Help on Monday night and have just started reading Simplicity Parenting. I am only about 15 pages in, but I already see good things coming from this book. I will share what I learned when I finish.
This is a strange week for me, only have one project on the needles and only reading one book (although I have a stack of a few more and I may have to dive into one before I finish Simplicity Parenting). Maybe this means I need some calm and organization to my life, which always seems to be filled with so much chaos.... Pin It Now!


  1. The lavender looks so squishy soft!

  2. I loved Simplicity Parenting. It lined up with a lot that we already do but offered so much wisdom and helpful ideas. Hope you enjoy it!

    I love the crossover top!

  3. I would like to read that book as well.
    I love the yarn color you chose for Phoebe's sweater. Lets get together and knit soon.

  4. You know the Orcas yarn shop just went out of business. I know, boo hoo to lose a textile/fiber ship in the islands. Luckily, San Juan has a great solid one. Your Debbie Bliss knitting project looks exactly that - - blissful. Glad I stumbled upon your blog.

  5. Calm is good. Take advantage of it and relish in it. Chaos will happen again...everyday like it does in our house. That color yarn is just beautiful.

  6. That color is beautiful! It's going to be lovely when it's finished.
