Yarn Along

{Yarning Along with Ginny, sharing a read and a current knit. Would you join us?}

After illness trickled back into our house early last week and took a swing at me this time, knitting went to the backburner. I think I got a few rows of the lace work in on the February Baby Sweater I'm knitting for a baby shower, but mostly I went to bed early. Actually, I'm still going to bed early-ish in an attempt to recover more fully. That unfortunately also means very little reading. I'm pretty sure I read about 2 pages of Julie of the Wolves in the whole week combined.

When I picked it up again, I got down to the bottom garter edge only to find I had to break into the second skein about 2 rows before the bind off. Disappointing. Or maybe that's just me and the tiny bit of OCD that most everyone has about something. I would have loved the neatness of binding off that edge with the first skein and then joining  the second skein at one of the arms, where I would have had to join anyway.

If I have enough yarn leftover from this project I'm hoping to do a little matching hat. I really love knitting for littles, especially the newborn variety.

What are you knitting this week?


  1. I dislike when the yarn needs to be joined in awkward places too. I hope you're feeling better by now. Take it easy so you can keep up with your little ones! Love the color of the FLS.

  2. Lovely color, and pattern looks like it has lots of texture.
    Best wishes for rest and recovery.

  3. It's so pretty! I can't wait to see it all blocked :)
