Yarn Along

{Yarning Along with Ginny this week and crafting with Frontier Dreams. Will you join us?}

I've been working on several things this week, but in small passes as my hands are able. I really wish I had big progress to show you today, but my left arm just isn't allowing it lately. I have 3 socks in the heel turn region of the knitting process, and I'm working hard this week on hats for Halos of Hope.

The Halos of Hope project I'm working on is part of the Podcaster Throwdown- a challenge issued to several podcasters to encourage them and their listeners to make hats to donate to Halos of Hope with the goal of collecting over 2,000 hats at the Stitches convention being held in California in February. I am knitting on behalf of Team Knitmore. While I listen to several podcasts, the Knitmores were the very first knitting podcast I came across. I still look forward to each episode and listen on Thursday evening while I drive to and from knitting group.

I am about half way through Voyager by Diana Gabaldon (on the kindle) as part of the Knitmore Girls Read Along, but coming up soon on the next book. As much as I love having a physical book in my hands, right now that can be a challenge for me since one of my arms isn't working well and I tend to choose books with well over 400 pages. I love that I don't have to hold the kindle while I read or can do it one handed. I can even knit while reading on the kindle. I love it.

What are you making this week?


  1. Go Team Knitmore! It's funny, you were the first person I ever saw link to a podcast in your blog, and now I'm TOTALLY hooked!!! Let's go team, we can do this!

  2. beautiful hats and I'm glad you are getting in some knitting here and there while you can :)

  3. Hooray! Great hats... sorry knitting has been a "pain" lately!
