Yarn Along – July 13

From small things

Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr.

Yarn along July 13
A wildly colored photo this week. I’m still reading Moby Duck and still working on the baby squared blanket for baby#2. I am getting close – I’ve eyeballed off what I hope is enough yardage for the border and plan to knit until I get there. I am not sure why, but this version feels like it is turning out a lot longer than the last one I made. I am using the same yarn, Plymouth Encore Colorspun Worsted as before, so I think it is just a knitting illusion. No worries though, it is such a great pattern, and I really think that knitting a car-seat / stroller size is perfect. I am even thinking about working one up, slightly larger, for the Lorax – though, as she doesn’t wear things I’ve knit, she also doesn’t use the baby blanket I knit for her either. On top of Moby Duck is a new hat for me. I am working on a Sprial Tweed Cloche from Knitting 24/7 by Veronik Avery, one of my favorite designers. I do have it on dpns now, but have dug out the circular because I am finding I do not really like dpns for this many stitches at this weight. It is a good pick up and put down project.

If you are just popping by the blog for the “Yarn Along” – last week I was still working on my Juneblueberry Triangle – and as of Sunday it was all done, ends woven in and blocked! I posted about it here.

And just because this makes me giggle – the Lorax has been getting much better at her drawings – apparently she loves using all mediums which is fun – today I didn’t even know she was working on this piece, a very identifiable ink drawing – a pregnant me!

Sure, I think I’ve gotten a little rounder in the face, I can’t really see my feet too well, but I know they haven’t swelled, and my hips have widened to make room for the baby. Not sure where my arms are – possibly crossed across me (and the boobs?). And yes, that’s the face I make most days 🙂
