Wednesday Yarn Along

Happy Wednesday!
Joining in with Ginny at Small Things for the big yarn along.

I keep trying to come up with something witty and cute to write. But my brain hurts. This little baby of mine needs to start sleeping more than 2 hours at a clip at night. He's a sweet little thing...but mama's tired!!!

Ok, I feel better that I wrote that.

Now on to knitting....and reading....

On and Off Leanne's needles:

I'm still working on the little hooded cardigan for a family friend's new baby.
Samuel Len Furtner was born last Saturday. So this little baby alpaca sweater is for him. I better start knitting more!

More rows were done on my "Squan Sweater". I had intended on making this for the fall to wear at Manasquan Football games. Oops. Season is almost over. Sweater is not done. Oh well.

A little gift...

And what I'm reading:
The library called me this week with a pile of books that I requested. I love libraries :)
Reading Tiger's Wife. I've been so tired lately that I only read a few pages at a time, but so far it's very good and very well written.
The rest are knitting books and a little book about encouraging my boys to write.
Very interesting so far.

Now, Andee (the knitting machine) has made some more AMAZING knits.
Seriously Andee, do you sleep?

Handspun Alpaca Yarn

Original Hat with alpaca yarn
(Please note that she said in her email to me that she started this LAST NIGHT.
LAST NIGHT PEOPLE! SERIOUSLY?????) And she wrote the pattern....just sayin'.

And she finished this beautiful braided scarf made from the yarn of three of our alpacas.
Oh...and she wrote the pattern for this too...

I hope you all have time to knit and read this week!

Happy Knitting


  1. I try to imagine how much I could knit if I didn't have to work full time!

  2. Oh man. That scarf is awesome. Is the pattern available?

  3. I hope you get some sleep soon. Or at least 4 hours at a time versus 2! I love the scarf. Could you link to the pattern please?

  4. To see more pictures of the Three Alpaca Scarf you can see it here

    I also included pictures of the alpacas that helped in the making of it. I will write out the pattern on my Ravelry page as soon as I get a chance.

  5. I always love your Wednesday yarn-along posts. I read two books last week while Good Guy was in NYC, but they have been returned to the library already. But I have three knitting projects in the works, so maybe they will be a blog post today. (Who knows?)

    Andee is amazing! I love the hat, it must be warm as toast!

  6. incredible, beautiful beautiful knitting. love that alpaca.
