Little Boy Blue: Yarn Along

I'm joining the Yarn Along at Small Things again this week, though I don't have much to show for myself in the way of knitting or reading progress...

I'm making G a new vest for the Spring season... with a lovely blue sock yarn, pattern details coming soon -

and I've been casually leafing through The Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman.  Trying to decide what to make for my own bed, but there are so many beautiful quilts in this book!!!  Right now - I'm just enjoying the eye candy.

And there has been lots of reading by the big people and the small people in this house about chickens lately.
We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our baby chicks!

And lastly, still reading and enjoying the Yarn Harlot's: The Secret Life of a Knitter.  I have always followed her blog, but this is the first book of hers that I'm reading, in great anticipation of meeting the legend herself this summer at Squam.

Now - back to work.
Back to taxes   - <grimace>

I am cutting it really too close this year...


  1. You get to meet Stephanie?! How wonderful as she is one of my top authors. Enjoy your chicks when they arrive.

  2. That blue sock yarn is dreamy!

  4. @affectioknitThank you! And I love having such lovely stitch markers to put to use... did you make them?
