Yarn Along 2/1/2012

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~ taken from Ginny's blog

This week I pulled out an UFO that I thought I would never finish- my very own ribwarmer! I have been knitting on this for some time. But you know how knitting for yourself goes! All I really need to do is knit the back and apply the I cord(which I haven't decided to do) I started this ribwarmer very soon after I started to knit. Wow how I have changed! It is going so much smoother!
My reading is so scattered this week. I am planning our Nature Table and have been itching to add things to it-right now I am trying to figure out how to make a little doll. One that my boys can play with (lightly). This takes me out of my comfortable knitting zone. 
Wish me luck! Can't wait to see what everyone is reading and crafting!


  1. I did a little doll for the wee one here using

    It is an easy pattern to follow and thought you might like to take a look.

    Happy Yarn Along.

  2. I know what you mean about knitting comfort zone....I lined a bag this week and couldn't wait to get back to the needles. (I love sewing and hand sewing in particular, but I'm just not as confident--and happy --as when I have knitting needles in my hands!!!!)
    good luck with the doll!

  3. Oh knitting a doll sounds good. Itty Bitty Toys has a number of interesting knits - can't remember if it has specifically a doll or not, but lots of other nice things.

  4. Have you come across five In A row nature studies? We enjoyed this in our home schooling days.

    Love Leanne

  5. I second using the pattern from wee folk art. They finished dolls are so cute and they are super easy to make. And I totally get the knitting comfort zone. Still struggle with stepping out of it to try something new. Good luck on the doll.

  6. A ribwarmer? I've never heard of such a thing. Guess I'll be checking back on the progress~

    Blessings, Debbie
