Yarn Along


I get to join in the Yarn Along over at Ginny's this week.

The tiny sweater is part of a birthday gift for my niece.

(Suzy, if you are reading this, don't let Maddie see it!)

It is for her Bitty Baby that I gave her on her first birthday.

The yarn is fuzzy and soft and I only had a tiny amount, so it had to be a small project.

The pink yarn is the beginning of yet another diaper cover for Therese, who happened to turn 9 months old this very day. How did that happen? She is growing so fast that it seems like I am constantly knitting larger covers. She is also advancing way too quickly. For instance:

-she can stand unassisted for at least 30 seconds.

-she figured out how to climb up the first step of our stairs.

-she can crawl extremely fast (and thus get to things she oughtn't before her mother can stop her).

The book: Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury

I am enjoying this book like you would enjoy a rich dessert. Little bites at a time and stopping to savor each morsel. Mr. Bradbury's writing is delightful.

Head on over to Ginny's to see more great knits and reads.
