rainbow “dreadlock” scarf

I’m joining up with Ginny on her “yarn along“. I love to knit and love to read – but since I haven’t figured out how to do both at the same time – I also love Audible. I just finished listening to Lee Child’s – Jack Reacher books, I really enjoyed them. And I am just beginning to re-listen to the Clan of the Cave Bear series by Jean Auel.

I don’t have much I can take a picture of, most of my projects are packed up, because I’m moving next week.

But I can show you what I am working on right now, it is another sev(en) circle scarf by Kirsten Johnstone.

I’m using Mini Mochi in a rainbow colorway and I will probably only do 5 circles instead of 7.

The other modification I am doing is some short row rounds on the circles to minimize the extra fabric at the back neck of the scarf. I’m liking how it is turning out.

Have a great week ~ So what are you knitting / crocheting / spinning / reading / listening to?

yellow angry bird

I’m joining up with Ginny on her “yarn along“. I love to knit and love to read – but since I haven’t figured out how to do both at the same time – I also love Audible. I’m STILL listening to Lee Child’s – Jack Reacher books, I really enjoy them. And I just started The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.

I’ve been working on a couple things this week ~

Remember I made a red Angry Bird a couple months ago for a little friend ~

Well, I decided to make the Yellow Angry Bird for his little brother ~  I’m using a darker yellow, because that’s the yarn I already had, I still have to do the eyes, nose and feathers.

I’m also/always working on a dishcloth, they go with me everywhere! 🙂  This one’s just a simple checker board pattern.

oscar the owl

I’m joining up with Ginny on her “yarn along“. I love to knit and love to read – but since I haven’t figured out how to do both at the same time – I also love Audible. I’m still listening to Lee Child’s – Jack Reacher books, I really enjoy them. And I am continuing to read the series I’m borrowing from my sister, I’m up to book 8 ~ Street Game by Christine Feehan.

I was reading through the blog posts in my reader this morning and came across this one by Linda @ Natural Suburbia. She shared a sweet little pattern for a knitted owl, and I happened to have a little time and the perfect little ball of yarn with me. Within about 45 minutes, Oscar the owl was ready to be stuffed. I had to wait until I got home to do the stuffing, but I think he turned out really cute.

Thank you Linda for sharing…

knitting doll clothes

I’m joining up with Ginny on her “yarn along“. I love to knit and love to read – but since I haven’t figured out how to do both at the same time – I also love Audible. I’ve been listening to Lee Child’s – Jack Reacher books, I really enjoy them. And I am continuing to read the series I’m borrowing from my sister, I’m up to book 7 ~ Murder Game by Christine Feehan.

A friend has a Waldorf style doll she made and has been wanting clothes for him. So about a week ago, she gave him to me and asked me to help him out. I’ve just gotten started on his britches, one leg done ~ one leg started.

I plan to do a shirt out of the variegated yarn and probably a vest out of the off white heather. I’m just kind-of making them up as I go, I don’t have any patterns to work from.
