Yarn Along

Hi everyone. I apologize for being so quiet around here. I can't seem to keep up with things lately!!! I guess it's that time of year. Busy, busy, busy! With the busy weekends in the farm store, I also had a holiday band concerts that I perform in. We finished up our holiday season and as much as I will miss playing for the next month, it's nice to have a little break. I haven't been knitting as much as I would like to, but I do have a few things on the needles and one off that I thought I would share.

I am knitting up a Georgetown Sweater using alpaca/merino yarn that I hand dyed with the help of my sister, Liz. I am working on the k1,p1 ribbed collar and I'm pretty sure this is taking me longer than all the other pieces combined! 

I am halfway through In a Dark, Dark Wood. It's a best's quick to read but I'm not so sure on how much I like it so far. We'll see...

I finished up the Prim hat. Knitted it with yarn from our farm. It's the Ono, Stone blend and it's AMAZING!!!!!!!! The mill that my parents have used the past two years is top notch and are doing a beautiful job with the yarn. It's uniform, beautifully spun, bouncy, soft. Perfection. I would like to get a fuzzy pompom for the top. I think that would make it complete.
Photos of the handsome boys that "grew" my yarn are below.

I have a few gift knits that I am working on too, so can't share pics of those!
Hope you are enjoying the holiday preparations. I have so much to do!!!!!! 

Happy knitting. Joining in with Ginny at Small Things for the YarnAlong.
