Today I'm joining Ginny at Small Things for the weekly Yarn Along.
This week I've been working on something for myself! I never knit for me so I had to find the perfect thing. And this cowl seemed right. Something to wear outside for quick jaunts, like letting the chickens out in the mornings and the dogs. It's a bigger piece than I thought it would be so I'm taking my time with it, not to rush and make mistakes. In off times I've been knitting coffee cup cozies. (For a future adventure!) These are so simple and I can knit one up in less than an hour. (I still need to finish off the end pieces, but I like to do that all at once. A big finishing sit down!) I want to find some fun colors to make more.
Reading.... well not much lately, for myself that is. LOTS of reading to the children on a daily basis. I ordered 3 new books last Friday and am anxiously awaiting them. You're All My Favorites is a favorite here. I love the simple pictures and the premise of how each bear is loved for their uniqueness.
And yes this week I did learn something new via YouTube. Yarn over. I never knew this mistake I make often is an actual technique! Haha. And now I know and know how to avoid it and fix it!
Please excuse the quality of the photos, taken with my phone- on a cloudy day.
What are you reading? Knitting?
