Yarn Along

Joining Ginny for Yarn Along this week.

A couple months ago I found some Martha Stewart Crafts Extra Soft Wool Blend on sale for $1.75 a skein. I bought a bunch of it with the intention of knitting baby items. 

Recently, I decided that I am not in the mood to knit baby things, so I set about finding a project to knit for myself with the yarn. Yesterday I started knitting the back of the Striped Tank from the Knit Simple Spring/Summer 2011. I am not sure how I am feeling about this project yet. The colors are still screaming "baby" at me. And will I ever wear a wool blend tank top? I have decided to keep knitting it because I made a promise to myself to knit through my stash before buying any more yarn.

This week I am reading Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving--and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity, written by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea. The authors have years of running experience. They have different running styles, one is more competitive than the other, but they both have run marathons. I am enjoying it. It is informative, inspirational, and funny!

While I knit, I am listening to Agnes Grey, by Anne Bronte. I am enjoying it, as well.

Also, I finally joined Ravelry! I am having so much fun looking through patterns and yarn. I can't believe I waited so long to join.

Have a great week!


  1. Have just hopped over here from the Small Things Yarn along. I haven't read too much of your blog yet, but I might just have to hunker down and read from the start! I have just purchased our next Beth Moore study for this summer -James. Have you done that one yet?? I might find out when I'm reading tonight! We have 2 teachers and a teacher's wife and it works best for a summer study for us, because our lives during school are on such different schedules! I've been reading the Yarn alongs for awhile, but never posted. Maybe it is time to start!

    1. Hi Karen Sue, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I love Beth Moore studies. Actually, our little group is trying to decide on which one we should study this summer. Yarn Along is fun. You should definitely link up!


Thanks for visiting and taking the time to leave a friendly comment! :-)
