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 am just finishing up the hood of the mouse's wee sweater and adding in the final touches to the knit mouse, like her face. It will be finished in time for Phoebe's birthday on Sunday! Finished and modeled pictures to come next week!

I have started reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and have been enjoying it. I also just got California by Edan Lupecki from the library. I have been waiting for it for quite some time, so I am pretty excited. It's about a future (apocalyptic) world... but that is about all I know. I'll tell you more next week.

What are you reading? What are you knitting?

Pin It Now!


  1. Oh my goodness, those little clothes are adorable!

  2. I cannot wait to see the mouse finished! I just love those books. My little boy wants the platypus still and I still have to start it!

  3. I can tell that the little mouse it's gonna be adorable, sooo cute!
