Yarn Along

Joining Ginny’s Yarn Along again.

Reading: I’m working on making Miss Mes some school clothes. She is starting two days a week preschool this year, and I’m bouncing between being terrified and thrilled. Sewing helps, and so I’m browsing through Wear Stitch Play and Weekend Sewing for ideas and patterns.

On the Kindle: I’ve fallen for K. M. Shea’s fairy tell rewrites, and her newest, Puss In Boots, is no different. Sweet and simple, but with fun twists, they are a quick but entertaining read. They are also in the Kindle Unlimited library, which is wonderful.

Knitting: I’m a little over halfway through with Miss Mess’s fall sweater, Bitty Birchbark and am loving both the pattern and the yarn. It will be very light weight as its knit loosely from a mostly cotton yarn, but will be great for the transitions of fall.

Listening: I’ve just found A Playful Days’s podcast and am working my way through the archives happily. With plenty of knitting and crafting chatter, making inspiration, and just life moments, they are hitting the spot of lightness I seem to be craving lately.

    1. I sewed first. My mom sewed, and I remember making things as early as elementary school. I learned to knit after my daughter was born. It’s handy to be able to do both.

  1. Hi Mary, thanks for your comment on my blog. Your knitting is lovely and I’m excited to know that you sew for your daughter. I like to sew clothes for my daughter as well. I’m looking forward to getting to know you better. 🙂
