Yarn Along: Results

Here we are again. The yarn along. But this week is different. You see this week I did something unusual. This past week week I started and… wait for it….. finished a project. Yes, folks, that’s right. I actually completed my hat from last week. I even like how it turned out. Take a look. … Continue reading

Yarn Along:  Quick Knit Hat

Yarn Along: Quick Knit Hat

We went on a drive yesterday, so I worked on a new hat. I’m hoping to get it done today so I can wear it tomorrow when it’s supposed to be cold. The yarn I’m using is by Malabrigo and the color is lettuce. It reminds me of a springy moss color. So far I’m … Continue reading

Yarn Along: …with Evernote

This week as I link up with Ginny’s yarn along, I’m not contributing my knitting progress.  Nope, I’m contributing a little techy tidbit that you will find super helpful in organizing your knitting patterns, etc. I find that when I’m visiting people’s sites and checking out their patterns, I often want to save them for … Continue reading

Yarn Along: Spring is in the Air…

I’m sure you all will be glad to know that I finished both my little bunnies in time for Easter morning.  I was pretty happy with how they turned out and the boys thought they were cute, so it’s all good.  I took a picture of the bunnies next to the felted hearts I made for … Continue reading

However, the lure of the water and the sunny playtime with my family pulls me to the pool and away from my knitting. That’s a good thing … Continue reading

Arrgggghhhh….

Arrgggghhhh….

So, this is NOT what I was planning on writing for my weekly Yarn along post. I decided to post it, though, as a reminder to those of you who know better (like me) and as a warning to those of you who don’t know any better. Any guesses what this is a picture of? … Continue reading

Yarn along:  Come on, Spring!

Yarn along: Come on, Spring!

This week’s Yarn along is kind of fragmented for me. I have a number of things that I am finishing. All that stuff from last week… it had tails. Yep, I hid the tails and pretended they were totally done. Now I need to weave them in. Maybe I’ll finish that tonight while I watch … Continue reading

Yarn along: Hats & Cowls

Here I am again with the weekly Yarn along.  This last week I finished a bunch of projects, so I’m pretty pleased with myself. First, I told you about my plan for a Shamrock Run hat and showed you the start to my green hat.  Well, I finished that… I’m really happy with how it turned … Continue reading
