Yarn Along

I'm joining Ginny today for Yarn Along.

A sweet young friend is having a baby - a long prayed for precious miracle. I'm knitting a little sweater for him or her. They've decided to be surprised. I love that.

So white seemed like a good choice. I've made several of these little sweaters over the years and love the pattern. The last one I made was for my Granddaughter - the one who will be graduating from college this spring. Oh my - how time flies.

I've also turned to a familiar friend in my reading. I've lost track of how many times I've read Jane Austen's books. This time I'm rereading "Persuasion." I do love Ann.

If you're working on something and would like to share, come join us. Or just come admire the handwork or get an idea for a good read. Ginny's blog is a welcoming place.



  1. Oh how I wish I could sit with you while you knit the soft goodness. Then you could teach me to knit. I crochet simple things and would like to learn to knit.

    1. That would be such fun Charlotte. I have a feeling you'd pick it up very quickly. I find it so relaxing. I'm not very good at crochet - just granny squares and baby blankets - simple things. I know there are some great tutorials on-line for knitting, but it would be much more fun to sit together to do it :)

  2. oh i love jane austin too... it's like visiting an old friend when i reread her books!
    congratulations to your friends - your sweater looks so lovely!

    1. Thank you so much Melissa. It's so nice of you to visit.

  3. What a perfect duo! (Only I would be crocheting - I could never manage 2-handed needle work!)
