Yarn Along

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! 
Joining in quickly for the yarn along. I have been knitting up hats for the farm store but only have a picture of one. So that's what I'll share today! 
Sometimes the quick easy no-brainer knits are exactly what you need. 

I am still knitting my husband's sweater and a sweater for myself. 
Hoping to get some new pictures of their progress this weekend.

I was dropping my youngest off at preschool yesterday and the gingko leaves were falling all at once and were so beautiful! Had to take a picture. By the end of the day all of the leaves were off the tree. It was snowing gingko!

And a blurry one of Chase collecting eggs in the morning. He's such a good helper.

Still reading The Good Girl. 
Reminds me a lot of a book I read recently titled, Mean Streak by Sandra Brown.

Joining in with the Yarn Along over at Small Things.
What are you knitting and reading? Join in the fun and share!!!

Monday Inspiration - Gift Knitting

Good morning friends. I have gift knitting on the brain and with the holidays quickly approaching, I thought I would do a "quick gift knit" post.

All of the photos are from my pinterest page "Monday Inspiration". You can get there by clicking this link: Monday Inspiration

A lot of these knits are quick and basic. The perfect patterns for those last minute knits.
I also added a few cute tag ideas that you can attach to those pretty knits!


Hopefully these photos sparked some ideas!
Happy knitting.

Fun Idea for the Holidays

I just came across this little project on pinterest and I wanted to share it with you all.
It's a perfect way to use up those extra bits of yarn that knitters always have laying around.

So cute and fun for the holidays! Thought it would be fun to include one on top of a gift.
Purple Debbie, this has your name ALL OVER it!

Knit in Progress

I have a bunch of little and big projects on the needles. We just got some new yarn from Cascade to sell so I knitted up a quick fun cowl using Eco Duo. Here's the result.
The pattern, Sweet & Simple is in 60 Quick Cowls book.
I altered it a bit so it would take 1 skein instead of 2. I just knit the middle section shorter than the pattern called for. I was happy with the result.

I also started a hat using Cascade Cloud alpaca yarn (aqua) and a Merino/Alpaca blend (tan)
Made up a pattern. Here it is in progress...

Update: Here is the finished hat. Calling it Searching for Seaglass.
I'm going to write up the pattern to give away with the yarn purchase at the farm.
Fits an adult or big kid :)

The sun was shining so brightly this morning and this was the photo from my phone.

And of course, Chase. Giving his girls some treats this morning.

Joining in with Ginny for the Yarn Along.

Monday Inspiration - Olive Love

If you had to make me pick a favorite color it would be olive. It's the color of my eyes and always a color I gravitate towards. So for today, I'm sharing some olive inspired pictures I found on pinterest.
Hope it sparks some inspiration to knit, sew, cook, decorate and enjoy life.

Wishing you all a great week!
