Yarn Along 3/28/2012

~ 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.

This week's yarn along finds me in the same place reading wise--I am enjoying The Snow Child immensely and I will be sorry when it comes to an end. Such a nice grown up fairytale. It brings me comfort to read about a couple who have been married for so long and the struggles they have had(even if they are fictional)-marriage is hard sometimes for everyone, isn't it?
I cast on yesterday for my second dress for Phoebe and I am really happy with it so far. I changed the M1 from a backwards loop to a M1left. Did you know that it the one most people use when the pattern calls for M1?
I have a FO! I did finish the cardigan I cast on in February. In was the In threes  . I wish I wouldn't have added sleeves. My hopes are that it will keep a little one warm and I hope brings another momma some comfort.
I have a little sewing to do this week--my boy is turning 8 tomorrow! And he requested a shirt with his birthday number on it.  He also requested STORE bought cupcakes--that is another story.
I can't wait to catch up on everyones projects and the books they have been reading! Thanks for all your comments and for stopping by!


  1. Congratulations on having an FO! I had one too and it's a wonderful feeling.
    Happy birthday to your son. Store bought cupcakes? Oh, my! :)

  2. I love the idea of little dresses! Thinking I may need to make some to send to my niece for the doll I made her. Hope your boy has a wonderful birthday. Gotta love when they share what they really want. :)

  3. So...last week when I commented, I hadn't realized who Phoebe was, actually! LOL! :) When I went to look...I fell in love!! Will most definitely be purchasing the book and making a Phoebe for the little girl(s) in my life!

  4. Your FO is such a wonderful little design. I've seen so many versions of increasing and some designers are very particular and others are ... whatever! : )

  5. My kids always seem to want store bought too. But I hate them blech!
    Glad to see you finish something- I love it when that happens :)


Thanks for stopping by- I treasure hearing from you.
