Following Ginny at Small Things for the weekly Yarn Along where we share our current reads and knits...
Last week I was almost finished with a sweater knit for my sweet baby Logan. I finally finished it after many froggings and a lot of grumblings and not so lady-like words. After a stern talking to and pins stuck to it, the blocking seemed to do things well enough. As I sighed about my failings with this knit, my husband commented that "normal people would never see that!"
Now I have a great, easy, instantly pleasing knit, Seamless Raglan Sweater for sweet Logan and for a KAL on Ravelry. I don't have to show this sweater who is the boss. Super simple and sweet.
I also finished Yarn Harlot and really enjoyed it. I already have the next book, Knitting Rules, on my Kindle app waiting for me to loiter around a WIFI to download it. In the meantime, I'm perusing and reading through two cookbooks looking for replacements for cereals and crackers for my family. I've been baking bread from Tassajara Bread book for over a year and I just love it so much. It has the best whole wheat muffin recipe. The book is so great at really describing and showing you how to work with yeast and how to take one component and use it throughout your baking. I also got the book, Feeding The Whole Family, which has some nice recipes to try. My kids eat well but we stay in our mid western bubble and are trying to add different foods in our diets.
Looking forward to reading others' Yarn Along! I'll miss next weeks (my first miss) as we'll be vacationing!
