Yarn Along

Yarn Along is hosted by Ginny from Small Things. For this KAL we post what knitting/crochet projects we are working on as well as what books we are currently reading. Here is an over-view picture of what I've been up to this week...
Reading: Truth be told, I haven't gotten even one page further in this book than last week:0) Still one I want to read, just haven't had time this week for it.

Crochet: I just started 'In Bloom Beret' designed by Brittney Waterhouse for my daughter yesterday. This is another project that I promised to do for her last autumn. It always takes me a day or so to work out learning something new again, so I've been playing with the pattern a bit and think I have the hang of it now:) This one should prove to be a pretty quick project, which is good since she's already decided that she wants a second one in another color. (**I just have to say what fun it is to have my 17 year old actually requesting that I knit and crochet things for her!!**)

Knitting: I got the 'bonnet' portion done on Patsy's Bonnet!! It will still need the string (i-cord) and flower decorations attatched.
I took the above picture just to show that at this point in the project I was semi-happily using dpns. That could not be said for the majority of this project!!! I think I'm going to need lots more practice with dpns before it becomes a comfortable practice:)  
I was trying to show the shape of the 'hat' here, but I'm thinking I will try and get my daughter to model it for me once it's all done:) 

That is all for this week, what are you working on? 


  1. The hat looks great! I love the Friday Night Knitting Club series! yeah that is nice that your daughter requests knits that is great!
    take care,
