I'm joining Ginny of Small Things today for her Yarn Along link up. It's always so much fun to see what everyone is working on and reading. This is just a sneak peak at my project, it's my sister's graduation gift so I'm trying to not give it all away. I just bound off last night...which was sort of a funny story. You see, my larger knitting needles are still in various boxes and locations in the sewing room/nursery... that wouldn't be much of a hang up, except I only ever think about it when Nomi is down for his nap or already tucked into bed. So after a desperate search of the house, I wound up using one of Bobby's chunky handled paint brushes to achieve a loose bind off. I wish I could say it was the first time I've done something like that, but there have certainly been instances of a pencil or chop stick being used in a pinch. Do you ever find yourself in this situation??
The books were a birthday gift to myself, and they just arrived last night! I'm looking forward to diving into them, I've heard good things in the blogging world about all of them, so they should be leisure time well spent. The shawl just needs blocking and then I will have better photos to share...I'm going to really focus on Nomi's green sweater next, and perhaps start a scarf for myself...? Thanks for stopping by, please say hello in the comments, I love hearing from you!
