Wednesday Yarn Along

Happy Wednesday!

We were so busy around here the past week or so getting ready for Farm Day that knitting has been put to the side. I was feeling "off" yesterday. Walking home from my kids bus stop I realized, that although I had been reading a great book, I haven't had knitting needles in my hands in over 4 days. Gasp. Yes, unreal. So, after Chase took a nap and I finished my design work that needed to be done, I sat my butt down and knitted. Ahhh and it was glorious.
Seriously, I'm weird yes, but knitting keeps me sane.

On Liz's Crochet Hooks:

A woman that stopped by for Farm Day told Liz about these great scarves. She made these up yesterday with some of her beautiful hand dyed yarn. LOVE these!
They are called broomstick scarves.
Here is a link to the ravelry page for the video instructions:

The pink scarf is made with sock yarn.
The yellow scarf is complete. So pretty.

Off Andee's Needles:
The Scarf!
This scarf is sooooo soft. Made from 100% baby alpaca.
Here are details on the scarf:
am calling this scarf "The Scarf"

It appears like a simple K1, P1 scarf but instead of a plain K I am knitting through the bottom of the K stitch. So basically I am knitting each row twice. Progress has been slow, but I love how it is turning out. Right now it measures 9-1/2" wide x 43" long. If I wasn't knitting through the bottom it would measure about 8" wide x 86" long.

On and Off Leanne's Needles:

I finally got the second sleeve started on my Bluebells Peasy. I hate sleeves.
Last night I finished reading, Such a Pretty Face by Cathy Lamb. Crazy, happy, sad, sweet, charming, odd wonderful book.

This picture was taken of me and Chase last night. I looked tired in it. I am tired...all the time. But this is my life right now...knitting with a baby sleeping on my lap. Good stuff.

(Chase sleeping in my arms while I knit.)

This is my Hurricane Irene Hat. I knitted this up during the storm but never really posted any pictures of it. I love it and can't wait to wear it.

Poppy Hat. I made this as a gift for my husband's co-worker's baby girl.

That's it for now! I hope you all have a wonderful week full of knitting.



  1. That broomstick scarf is amazing! It looks really complicated, but so effective!

  2. What awesome projects! Love the broomstick scarves. But that picture of you knitting with little Chase in your arms takes the cake.
