Yarn Along

I placed a rather largish yarn order the other day. Clicking on 'place order' was scary. I don't like spending money on me, I always feel guilty. Then I reminded myself that the reason for this purchase was to make items for those I love. That quelled the anxious feeling, but only a little. When it arrived and I squeezed all that soft, colorful yarn, I got all giddy like a child on their birthday. Oh, I will have fun knitting for sure and I look forward to seeing my little one's faces when they receive their handmade gifts.

I don't expect Peter to jump for joy over his sweater, but I am loving this pattern so far. I can't wait to finish and see him in it.

I am reading mostly stories to the children, and I am reading excerpts from 'The Faith Explained' for Jack's religion course. Oh, and I am listening to 'Jane Eyre' on my  phone.

Gratuitous kid pics because they were pestering me just so cute I had to snap a couple photos.

Joining Ginny.


  1. I really like the colors you're using for your knitting...oh I wish someone would knit a sweater for me ... I could knit my own but it's not the same... :P

  2. Oh, my gosh, your kids are cute! (and your knitting is so beautiful, you are so talented!)
