Yarn Along...


This week was all about new skills!  I finished up my stockinette scarf and gave blocking a try.  It was easy to learn how to block after checking out a few YouTube videos.  However, apparently things made up of the stockinette stitch like to roll up on themselves and refuse to flatten.  So.

Onto Scarf No. 2.  I decided that I would try to learn the Seed Stitch.  I love it!  It is easy and though I have to really concentrate, the result is so beautiful!  I started working on the scarf in the french blue and realized that I was going to use up all of the french blue yarn that I have before the scarf would be completed.   I decided to dip into a navy blue of the same type of yarn that I was planning to use for the third scarf.  I learned how to switch colors (which I swore that I would never learn how to do a month ago) by watching a video.  The color changes are really not very professional looking and I don't know how much I actually like the stripes, but I will continue to persevere.

We are reading through the Kaya stories for school and are going to start to reread Milly Molly Mandy today.  I bought the October issue of Martha Stewart Living yesterday and am enjoying all of the articles on autumn delights...  hopefully the weather will start to cooperate!

Oh we are reading the same book! My kids are just loving it, I'm excited to get the second one for them. :) This week I'm sharing a sneak peek of the Sunday Sweater I'm test knitting for Ginny. Stop by if you have a moment!
