Hello! Happy Wednesday aka Yarn Along Day.
I'm going to bombard you with photos. Sorry. You've been warned.
A lot has been going on around here lately and I wanted to share the fun!
Joining in with Ginny for the Yarn Along Fun.
So here goes....
I am on a "finishing" role! I knitted away all week and finished up my Pendulum Scarf.
I named it, Strawberry Fields because of the colors I chose.
I also finished up (well....kind of finished up) my Follow Your Arrow Mystery KAL Shawl.
This was left very neglected for months in my bookshelf. So I picked it up to start again and had zero clue where I had ended. I knew that I was just about done with Clue 4 but no idea what row.
So....in order to finish it without totally screwing up what I had already done, and to keep the shawl to one skein of MadelineTosh, I just did a garter edge and casted off.
So, it's Clue 1-4. No 5. Oh well. So it's blocking this morning in the warm weather.
Yay!!!!! NEW PROJECT! I love new projects. Since the day the BT Kids collection was released, I've been aching to get one of these sweaters on my needles.
I felt like Chase just HAD to have a new sweater. I also thought it could fit him all winter and then be passed onto Wade and Grant. I am using Beaverslide Worsted Yarn in colorway Glacier Shadow.
I started last night and I'm cruising right along.
This is the Wyatt sweater by BT Kids.
And this is not new knitting, but I just entered it into the County Fair.
Opening night is tonight but I am teaching a knitting lesson so we'll hopefully be headed there tomorrow. I always love the Monmouth County Fair.
The animals, tractors, farmers, etc. Just plain old fun!
This shawl is the Juneberry Shawl from Brooklyn Tweed.
I dropped the shawl off on Monday and it was fun to see the behind the scenes set up.
I snapped a few "before" pictures.
More pictures from the week...
My youngest boy turned 3 this week. We celebrated with some cupcakes on his bday and then a trip to the zoo a few days later!
Turtleback Zoo was great!!!!
We have also had lots of fun outside farm time.
Sorry for the photo overload!
Hope you all have a great week.
I also want to wish all of our blogging friends that are headed to Shetland for the knitting trip of a lifetime!
I'll be anxiously awaiting all of your photos!
