Yarn Along

hats, hats, and more hats

the simple baby cardy 

the books i have been reading
I am making a sneaky post. We are on vacation and there was to be no internet... hehe. But I have been so busy knitting. I have knitted a hat every single day. I made two Zsa knitted mask hats. Cae wanted one and after I made one for him, Fiona Rosie wanted one too. She calls it her cat hat! I knitted it in the round instead of flat which I liked better. I made two pointy gnome hats for wee little babes that will be joining the family in the fall. (Those are so so much fun to knit and work up so quickly.) I also restarted Fiona's baby cardi from "More Last Minute Knitted Gifts". I had to frog the whole thing because it was way too small for her, and since I took this picture I had to restart again because it was way to big for her. Ah well, at some point it will be a lovely gray and white sweater with beautiful red owl buttons.
Lastly... BOOKS! I am reading the grammar book. I will be doing grammar lessons with Sagan and Cae this fall, and honestly I need a refresher course. I have been reading to Cae and Rowan off and on during this vacation, mostly when it has been raining too hard to play outside, which for the boys pretty much means you can't see across the street do to the down pour. Fiona is totally in love with "Each Peach, Pear, Plum" I think I read it 10 times a day. Which is completely fine, because it is such a sweet book.
I am joining Ginny for the weekly Wednesday Yarn Along.

WOW! You have been super busy! It's fun how you can knit so many things on vacation isn't it? I do that too - just a bit slower during the day, and not so many chores. Got to love vacations!!
