Wednesday Yarn Along

Happy Wednesday!
I haven't had time to knit as much as I would like this week. This baby of mine is getting very busy and the knitting time just escapes me! But I did manage to get a few more rows done on the blanket (that clearly will be ready NEXT Xmas)!!!! I didn't find time to read a book this week, but I did enjoy my new Whole Living Magazine. I just subscribed to that and Everyday Food and I'm enjoying both very much. I also pulled the sewing machine...dusted it off and cranked it up. I decided to make a recycled or is Upcycled these days....cowl out of old sweaters. It was fun to sew again but I quickly remembered why I don't do it very often. 1. I make a MESS!!! and 2. I don't have a sewing room to make a mess in! Anyway, it came out nicely and I'm happy with it. It will be for sale this weekend at the Open House.

So here goes for this week......


I made two hats that have yarn I hand spun with a drop spindle.  The yarn is made with Awan's fiber.

1. Hexagon Hat
The brim and hexagon pattern are made with my Awan yarn.  I designed the pattern.

2. Awan Pom Pom Hat
The brim and pom pom are make with my hand spun Awan yarn.  I desinged the pattern.

3. Brady Hat
The brim is a Merino / Silk blend and the black is alpaca yarn I hand spun.

4. Lens Cap Holder
This is alpaca yarn I hand spun. 

It's a rainy yucky day here. I hope it's nicer where you are!

Just had to share a photo I took of Chase this morning at the Christmas tree. It's the reason I didn't have more to show for my knitting this week!
Happy Knitting


  1. Hi,
    Your knitting is just beautiful! I like your button.

  2. Leanne I love your scarf I can't wait to see it in person.

  3. I envy you for spinning with a drop spindle. I have one and still have yet to figure it out. Your hats are lovely, and so is that sweet baby boy of yours!

  4. Do you have a link for the recycled sweater cowl? I'm not the best knitter but I can sew a straight line with my machine!
    Thank you!
