Yarn Along

Joining Ginny at Small Things again this week.

I'm a day late. Yesterday there were all of five minutes of sun shine. Grey days do not make for good photographs around here. I'm knitting a scarf for a friend (Ravelry notes here). I think I'm going to run out of yarn before it's long enough. I'll check at the yarn shop tomorrow, otherwise I'll have to frog and try something else. I'm also knitting a Pebble Vest for a friend and some gnome hats.

I'm still reading Spartan Gold. I have some books waiting for me at the library, but what I really want to (re)read is the Pink Carnation series by Lauren Willig. It's just this thing that I do - rereading series when the mood takes me.

Here's what I've finished recently.

Fingerless gloves for a friend's husband (modeled by the Elf). They're like my stripey ones, only shorter and without the stripes. (Ravelry notes here)

A wee doll for a wee boy. The hair is Crayon from KnitPicks. It's pima cotten and *insanely* soft. If I didn't dislike working with boucle so much, I'd be positively swimming in this stuff.


  1. wow I love the yarn on the first photo! is that the scarf? yay, I wish someone would knit something like that for me :) it's absolutely lovely :)

  2. Your wee little doll is adorable.

  3. Love the mitts and the model almost fits into them!! My how they grow :)

  4. you've been a busy knitter! love the wee doll :)

  5. i like that scarf pattern, and the yarn is lovely.

  6. Such a cute wee doll :-) And thanks for visiting my post about my fairy doors. I've only sold them to people I know so far, thinking maybe Etsy in the future :-)

  7. love all your knits, and i agree about boucle yarn. but it does make cute hair!
    those are perfect man mitts, oh dear, another thing to add to my list...

  8. Love the little gnomey dude! Love your blog too! So happy to be here in this like-minded community!
