Yarn Along ~

I love seeing what other's are reading, and creating each week through Ginny's Yarn Along, and every once in a while I'm all ready to play along! Looks like it's one of those weeks :).

I am really enjoying this book, Simplicity Parenting. I put it on hold at my local library, and waited patiently for it to be my turn. Months later, I finally had it in my hands. Unfortunately, it was an incredibly busy couple of weeks, and I was maybe one quarter in, when I had to return it. I wasn't going to wait another 5 months! Bought, and delivered. I feel like it's a book I'll look back on anyway, so worth buying I'd say.

The knit, is the Baby Bamboo Singlet from Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders. Before this, I have knit a couple dishcloths, and approximately one-third of a baby blanket. I am loving seeing something come together like this. It's amazing what two sticks and a ball of string will do!! I started yesterday and am just finishing up the back. This is very quick for me - the girl who spends 2 months on a 2 hour dishcloth!
I even started my first gauge swatch but, I'll admit, I was totally bored with it by the halfway point and too excited to just get started. If this ends up fitting a doll, or a 5 year old instead of a newborn? It is, most definitely, my own fault.


*The Yarn I'm using is Paton's Bamboo Silk


  1. YAY!!!! you're knitting! I can't wait to see Janie! Looks lovely so far.
    Nice gauge.

    1. Yay!!! I know! And thank you :) I've already made a couple visible mistakes, but I'm trying to just let them go, as in the past this is what has kept me from fully knitting. I ALWAYS pull things out, and then never go back. This time I'm finishing, no matter what!
