Yarn Along

Joining Ginny from Small Things for the weekly Wednesday Yarn Along!

books at the bedside

I have missed a few Yarn Alongs, I have been taking time to be with in myself... still I have been knitting. I have been knitting socks, lots and lots of socks. Who knew?! They scared the heck out of me, but I pushed through and now, now I am in love. I just ordered a few more lovely skeins of sock yarn, looking forward to getting them in the mail, nothing better than sock yarn in the mail (Ok maybe cloth diapers in the mail, that is always good too).
I finished up Cae's pair of socks, started and finished up a pair for Fiona (I have no idea what the yarn is, it was a freebee when I ordered yarn ages ago, and I didn't like it, but now!? NOW I love it and wish I knew what it was!), and I knitted up two wee pairs of baby socks, just love knitting baby socks... Cae and I are on a mission, a mission to make a stock pile of knitted goodies to sell at the Waldorf winter fair this December (so I have months and months to work on this). I have another pair on the needles, but these are big girl socks, a special surprise for a little girl in our home school group. Fingers crossed I get them all knitted up by Friday!
And reading... I won "Full Cup, thirsty spirit" in a give away and it is very good. Also reading "Sacred Pregnancy" which is just amazing and I so wish I had had this book when I was pregnant, so full of such wonderfulness. Trying to find a way to put all my dreams together to make something magical, and this book is helping a lot! The Cosmic Calculator is just an amazing way to teach math to children, the boys are loving it and so am I! And finally I have been reading my two issues of "Sacred Pregnancy" e-magazine... again, such amazingness, so many things brewing in my head.

And as a special bonus... Caelan's Yarn Along!

Rachel Garner said...

I love his rainbow bird! Your socks are awesome! I've really gotta start knitting socks. I'm a little scared though too. You make it look easy though and now I'm inspired!

Looks like the sock bug has bitten you, they look great! And congratultions to Caelan, his bird is so cute. I can't wait to show my son. Unfortunately I am the only knitter in the house, no one else wants to learn.

PS- Yes, my photos are of my rosemary bush. It is almost 18 years old and blooms all the time. I think it really likes the pine tree it is beside as I have another plant that hardly ever blooms.

Wonderful socks. Bravo to Caelan, his bird is fantastic.

Look at those SOCKS! Amazing! I am really hoping to add socks to my knitting skills this year...but first maybe I should focus learning how to cable...

Happy knitting :)

Socks. I must learn to knit socks! Yours are wonderful.. I especially love the little bitty ones. Of course I tend to be a bit obsessed with little bitty lately. :)

Blessings, Debbie

Oh yes, tell your son his bird is perfect.
