Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~


I’m knitting a little Baby Vertebrae sweater this week with Australian alpaca yarn that I received as a gift. (Thanks, Rachael!)  It is a soft gray green color that coordinates well with the other things I’ve knit for this baby so far.  I’m still reading The Keeper of the Bees.  I am spending most of my evening time knitting, so the reading is slow.

I’m really liking the new link up tool!  I love all those little knitting pictures, and I hope that you do too!

  2. The yarn looks absolutely lovely, and you’re right about how well it coordinates with other colors.
    Have a wonderful weekend, Ginny!

  3. Hi Ginny, I hope you like my little ami Koalas. I enjoyed making them very much and have made a free pattern to anyone who would like them.
    Thanks for your generosity and hope your pregnancy is going well.
    Sharon. 🙂

  4. Just a note to say I love the photo link-up. I’ve found many a new blog through the pictures and I love how beautiful all the projects look tiled together. Thanks for bringing this together each week.

  5. looks so lovely xxx it was a pleasure 🙂

  6. Beautiful knit, must add to queue. Many friends and family members having babies

  7. Lovely yarn!

    Thanks for hosting!

  8. That yarn is just luscious!

  9. Love your new yarn! So excited for you! 🙂

  10. Ginny, your photo this week is captivating . . . something about the soft misty color of the yarn against the quilt and the deeper turquoise shade of the book binding. I go through periods when I focus on reading and then others when I focus on knitting. I know a few people who knit and read *at the same time*–can you imagine? They are much more clever than I!

    Love, love, love the color of that yarn. I’m so happy for you and and your family! I have five children, but always wish that we could have had more. Now I am too old.

  11. Such a lucky baby – lovely yarn and perfect colour x

  12. Australian Alpaca? Well that sounds dreamy! That is going to be one lucky baby 🙂

    I like the new look of the links. Great idea!

  13. Oh, that green yarn is gorgeous!
    Thanks for your hospitality Ginny, I love to link up here!

  14. I love that wispy soft yarn Ginny! Knitting is the only thing that helps me with new baby anticipation!!

  15. Such a lovely shade of green, and it looks so soft!
    Thanks for the link up, too. I’m glad we can add pictures to it, this time!

  16. Knitting for a new baby is always the best kind! I recently used an alpaca yarn for a milo vest for my littlest guy, and it feels so lovely.
    The new link up is great, I really like seeing little ‘previews’ of what everyone is up to!

  17. beautiful green blue color of the yarn! It’s so unique 🙂

  18. That color is so pretty, like a foamy sea on a cloudy day. Your new little one is a lucky fellow. 🙂

  19. Adorable color!!

  20. I love the new link up too and that yarn is gorgeous and alpaca so good to work with.
    Keep well.

  21. That yarn looks so soft and delectable!
