Following Ginny's Yarn Along at Small Things where we share our latest knits and reads...
In the basket this week, I'm starting to work on my littlest's fall wardrobe of knitted pants. I've got a lot to knit him, lucky little man. I plan on doing several pairs with an elastic waistband for easy changing. Of my three, he is the most difficult to change diapers. It is like a wrestling match every time and of course he takes them all off so he has to be in good ol' pins. These pair will be made with Marr Haven Merino Ramboulette dyed in a simple tan to go with everything. I'm trying something new with them to reduce bulk by knitting the inside of the waistband in worsted gaia and then I plan to switch it on the outside of the waistband to the Marr Haven.
I'm still working on Organized Simplicity. The statistics of TV watching and mindless use of technology is staggering to me. The TV doesn't personally lure me in but I can spend way too many hours on the computer. I know I've had to really take myself away from many online "groups" I participated in when I noticed how much time it was taking away from my home life. Making that commitment was hard, but it sure was worth it. I'm enjoying this book. So far it has a lot of good discussion topics for my husband and I.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is up to!
On a side note...I am looking for a needlepoint/embroidery pattern of a woman in braids doing handwork. I usually see in in red thread. I know it is in a picture in Soulemama's book and I've seen it online often. I want it! Anyone know what it is called? :)
