Yarn Along -

Joining in the fun of the weekly Yarn Along hosted by Ginny over at Small Things. In Ginny's words:

~ 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. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

It has been a while since joining the weekly Yarn Along, not for lack of knitting or reading mind you, but just not the time to blog about it.

Last night I was able to finish this scarf that a woman in town has asked me to knit to match one of her favorite hats. What an honor. I have never knit for anyone except family and a gift for my best friend. So being asked to knit for someone I hardly know was a true blessing and honor. Thanks to the ladies at our local yarn shop, Close Knit Sisters, for all the help selecting the perfect yarn. You can find the free pattern and my notes on Ravelry. Those that know me, know purple is my favorite color. I would really love to keep this for myself. I just hope the recipient loves it as much as I do.

As for reading, I have been busy working my way through the Family Herbalist course from Vintage Remedies. WOW! I am learning so much. It is so freeing to know I can have such a positive impact on my family's health. Thanks for my mother-in-law for such an awesome Christmas gift.

Don't forget to head on over to this weeks yarn along and see what everyone else is knitting and reading. There's always so much inspiration.


  1. Congratulations on the special request scarf! It turned out lovely!

  2. I am SURE she will love, love, love it! No question. I mean, just *look* at it. And it matches perfectly. Lucky recipient.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I look forward to your thoughts.
