Yarn Along

I am knitting a blanket for my niece's first baby that is due on the birthday of my first baby. I showed her some possible patterns and we talked colors, and I am really happy with the choices. The yarn is so soft. The kids all like to caress and touch my knitting. The weight and drape are also deliciously nice. I hope that she loves it as much as we do!

For reading, I am starting on my library books. I am trying to steal little moments here and there. A few minutes on the couch with my coffee before the morning dishes and school. After the kids have left the table at lunchtime and have gone outside or upstairs to play. And a page or two before I fall asleep while laying with Therese, who still asks for me to stay with her until she falls asleep each night. I will admit, I am usually the first one of us asleep!

I am linking up with Ginny, as usual.

I am being purposefully vague so that my niece cannot see the whole thing until it is finished.

Still vague, yet you can see all the colors.


  1. The colour combination is beautiful.

  2. You have chosen a beautiful yarn combination, so pretty.

  3. You made an excellent color choice. They work real well together. I'm sure it will be much loved!

  4. Great choices...
    Both in yarn and reading materials. : )

  5. The colors are gorgeous! Can't wait to see the FO after the baby is born!

  6. Those are great colors! And two great reads, too. I have put aside The Gift temporarily, but I read Prizewinner and it's a great story!
