Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny from Small Things.

I won’t bore you with another ‘in progress’ of my Tea Leaves tonight, partly because the lighting is non existent and also because I haven’t gotten much done this past week.  I have started one of the sleeves, but I am not far into it yet.  A good friend of mine had a baby last week, a little boy.  He is so gorgeous and I am feeling a little sad that this is the first of all her babies (he is the 4th) that I won’t get to cuddle for a while.  They live overseas now and I have decided I want to knit him a Beyond Puerperium.  I ordered the yarn today from Bendigo Woollen Mills.  I have sample cards for all their yarn and it was nearly impossible to choose what colour and type of yarn I wanted.  I ended up ordering two different colours, as I couldn’t decide between a lovely green called Elm and a grey/blue colour called Lake.  Tough call, I know.

As for reading, I finally finished Keeper of the People.  It’s based on a small tribe of people who come together in adversity.  They are trying to escape with their lives from a cruel warrior and his band.  Of course the story has ended with a cliff hanger you might say, so if I want to find out how the story goes, I need to buy the next book in the series.  While I didn’t dislike the book, I found I was skipping over a lot of the wording to get to the storyline.  It waffled on a little, but thankfully I still liked it.  I might read something else in the meantime, before I commit to the next book in the series though.

Looking forward to seeing your lovely creations and find out what good books I can add to my ‘to read’ list, as it needs a top up.  Jacinta x

    I’m sorry you aren’t able to hold your friend’s baby Jacinta, I know that is hard. I do like the names of the yarn you order and am looking forward to seeing which one you decide to use. Have a great yarn along day.

    I’m sure the baby will love his new sweater and that will be your way of indirectly holding him. So sorry you cannot be there in person.

    I can’t wait to see the yarns, both sound lovely. And I really like the idea of the cardi as a long distance snuggle.

    Oh I love the lake colourway, I knit a baby blanket in that and wanted to keep it. Great choice of pattern.

    Maybe two could be knitted. Its such a shame not being able to share your friends joy in person and to cuddle a little one.

    Love that Puerperium pattern, I keep wanting to call it Beyond Puppydom.
