Yarn Along

Joining with Ginny at Small Thing's for this week's Yarn Along.

I have finally finished the body of my sweater  and now just have to start the sleeves. I still haven't decided if I am going to go with the 3/4 length sleeves, like the pattern calls for, of if I am going to make them shorter or longer. Decisions, decisions.....I guess I should decide soon!

I  just started reading The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert. I have heard good things about it and am hoping it might be a good book to have one of my classes read next fall.... I am also finishing up How to Behave so Your Preschooler Will Too which has been quite helpful putting the actions of a 3 year old into perspective.

What are you reading? What are you knitting?

Pin It Now!


  1. I've not seen that sweater pattern before but I LOVE it! And that green is gorgeous!! And yes, three year olds are a handful! Good luck on gaining perspective!! ;)

  2. can't wait to see what the decision is, I tend to like regular length for myself but for kids I like slightly shorter so they don't get dirty as often.

  3. Hmmm...looking forward to seeing what you decide :) As you know, I love the green.

  4. I love that picture. I tend to like longer sleeves, but the pattern looks like it will look amazing with any sleeve length. Can't wait to see what you decide.
