Yarn Along

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

I have finished Phoebe's Phoebe's sweater.... and I love it, despite it's heft. I have included it in today's photo, but not in its full glory. I figure I will wait until I give it to Phoebe on her birthday (Match 1st) and display it properly (on her) then!

I am now frantically trying to finish the Phoebe mouse, with its dress and matching sweater, all before the birthday as well. I have been under the weather a bit these past couple of days, so I have gotten a bit behind my (self-imposed) "schedule".

I just finished all three of the books I was reading last week, and I think I am going to start A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. It's one that has been on my to-read list for years. I am headed on a mama-only adventure this weekend, so I need something good to read while I am childless....

And for all you animal lovers out there, today's special yarn along guest is Matty Cat.

What are you reading? What are you knitting?

Pin It Now!


  1. Well hello there Matty Cat. The sweater looks great, can't wait to see it one her. Mama only adventure...I think I need one of those :) Enjoy!

  2. you will love a tree grows in brooklyn! I hope you feel better soon and I look forward to the big sweater reveal, I know she will look fantastic in it!!

  3. Cannot wait to see the sweater and mouse. I love those books - my son has requested the platypus from Freddie's Blanket. Have a great time on your adventure - is it yarn related as well? That would be even better!

    1. My trip is not yarn related, although I do plan to get some knitting in on the plane!
      And I haven't seen Freddies blanket yet-- I will have to get it from our library. I bet it is just as cute as her Phoebe books!

  4. Have a great trip! I love your fun project. I have also had A Tree Grows in Brooklyn on my "to read" list for a long time. Maybe this is the year I'll actually read it. I've heard it's good! Have a great week.

  5. What a sweet photo bomb!! Can't wait to see the sweater modeled.
