Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me every Wednesday to share a single photo of what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Share your photo on your blog, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us!~

Yarn Along-9228

There’s not much change for me from last week’s Yarn Along, because I spent most of the week knitting bracelets.  I might have added an inch to my Sproutlette.  I’m more than halfway through The Thorny Grace of it, and I really like it.

I also want to share that Tracey surprised me by offering to host a virtual baby shower for me next month!  I think it’s such a sweet idea, and I really appreciate it.  There are details in her Yarn Along post today if you would like to join us!

  1. I really like the design of this little dress – is it your own design? Very nice! ~Val

  2. Hi- I’ve been following your Yarn Along and I’ve really enjoyed it! I have a new knitting blog and I decided to start a Friday Meme called- Friday Fantasy Knits. It might take awhile to get some followers, but I thought I’d connect with some of the bloggers I followed this week. If you have time- and I know you’re amazingly busy (2 of my kids are gone off to college and only 1 teen at home), but if it sparks your imagination come join me and add a pattern or 2 or 3 of your dreams. Thanks! Have a great weekend. http://lovelyyarnescapes.blogspot.com/2016/03/friday-fantasy-knits.html

    Virtual baby shower – I’m not sure how this works. Is there a list of items needed and an address to send them to or is there a way to give via PayPal?

  4. I love the colour of the Sproutlette dress! Such a fun name for it too! 🙂

  5. I’m so glad you like the Brian Doyle book. I will be ordering another book of his essays. I also enjoyed his novels, Mink River and The Plover.

  6. That is thoughtful, a great way to connect when people are too far away. I’ll have to check out The Thorny Grace of It and see if that is something that would interest me.

  7. A virtual baby shower – I am continually amazed by the caring & giving community of the Yarn Along-ers.

  8. Awww – I just love Tracey. I’m looking forward to it. And yes – you got a lot of knitting done with those bracelets!

  9. The knitted bracelets are a wonderful idea and so worth taking the time to make. I am loving all the pink yarns on your blog just now.

  10. I bought the friendship bracelet pattern. Thanks!!

  11. I think the name Sproutlette is such a sweet name for a baby dress!

I love to hear from you!
