Yarn Along


I've been a busy bee. Knitting and reading every chance I get these days.
Even if it's just a row or two here and there, the needles are clicking!

I knitted up some hats for the farm store. Been into bulky knits lately, so stash busting and holding a bunch of yarn together to make some kid size hats. All alpaca and wool blends.

I am also making progress on my Illas Cies sweater. Rhinebeck will be here before I know it (YAY) so I want to finish this up with hopes of wearing it. This is one of the sleeves. Just have to do the other one and then seam, collar and block!!!

Still knitting my Golden Child shawl. It's more than half way done and I am really enjoying knitting it. It's easy garter stitch with some stripes, solids and a textured section.

I finished reading The Lake House by Kate Morton. I would recommend it. It's long, but worth it.
I just put The Queen of the Night on hold at the library. It looks good!

And that last photo is all the cousins on the Sherman side. We spent the morning at Allaire State Park celebrating Wade's 4th birthday with some pork roll and cheese sandwiches, a walk, train ride and general store candy pit-stop. It's not very often that we have all the boys together these days. With all of them getting older and busier we are all going in different it was nice to all be together for a little while.
