Yarn Along Wednesday

How is it already Wednesday!  What a busy week our family has seemed to have.

This week, for my Yarn Along Wednesday, courtesy of Small Things, I actually have a print book to post.  Being one to devour audiobooks as they work so well with an obsessive knitter, an actual print book means I have to put my needles down...or rather slow them down as I can do two things at once.  I'm just now getting into The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.  So far I like it!  I have to admit that I get annoyed by characters who have long names and live in long, foreign named places.  I sit there and attempt to sound things out in German-which I can't do and then loose the feel of the story.

On my needles, I'm working on a pair of scrappy longies for Logan.  He needs some clothes to finish out the winter and is such a 'joy' to dress that wool pants seem to be the best for all of us now.  I usually always have my babies in lots of wool but since I really wanted to use as much hand-me-downs from his two brothers as I could and I sold my used longies after Mason, he's just been rockin' whatever I already had (which was more than enough).  I also made him this and this last week too.

If you are a knitter and haven't yet read Soulemama's post today, you should!  It is just like what I find in my baskets too!  One must have lots of projects to do while ushering out January!  Isn't May almost here? 


  1. I am also a fan of soulemama and Ginny. I have a knitting book giveaway on my blog that you may be interested in. Check it out!

  2. I've read that book and thought it was quit good. Haven't read the other two though...
    And I love the colours in the cute longies you're knitting :)

  3. The scrappy longies are so cute! Love all the stripey bits...
