Yarn Along

I finished the washcloth I was working on last week.  I was using this pattern, for those who wondered.  I started a baby hat because my sister-in-law will have a baby girl in a few weeks.  I think the hat may turn out a bit too big (because I knit really loosely, apparently), but it will still fill a spot on my Christmas list, and I should have plenty of time to knit one smaller.

The book pictured is the baby's current favorite, which, I am sad to discover, does not seem to be currently in print.  It would be easier to just let her  play with it, knowing I can easily get a replacement copy, but I feel like it needs to be a read together only book for right now, since we really don't know how to handle books with paper pages yet.

Go visit Ginny for more knitting and reading.


  1. We have taped many, many books after over enthusiastic reading. I love seeing them love books so much but it hurts me when the books get hurt - so the real goodies get put up where it at least requires good climbing to get at them :)

  2. Love the color of the baby hat! I am hoping it will fit :)

  3. That is a beautiful little hat. I try to teach my children to be gentle with books. I think it's loevly that I still have picture books that I read as a child that I can share with them now.
