Yarn Along

 I'm feeling a little calmer with my knitting load this week even though it seems to have increased. How did that happen? Last night I knit a wee jumper for Osgars doll, which is a gift for his birthday on Friday. Needs to be sewn up, but I'll be done in time. Yea.  I couldn't find a pattern for a good doll jumper  anywhere so I made this one up.  Lots of doll cardigans out there though.  If it looks ok when its finished I'll share the pattern.

The wool I've been waiting on for Troys hat finally arrived this week.  Its Malabrigo Chunky and its lush.  The depth of colour these guys achieve  really is amazing.  I got Cypress, which looked black when I ordered it, but its the darkest of greens, beautiful. Its the first time Troy's ever let me knit him something.  His childhood memories of hand-knits are not good,  so,  it has to be the best, most comfortable, sexiest hat ever.  I'm desperate for approval!

I finished my market bag - yea!  I'm still reading Second Chance Mother and we've also joined in with Annies Read Aloud Along.   We started Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH last night.

What about you.  Does your other half let you knit for them? Are you reading The Rats of NIMH?

Happy Knitting!


  1. My husband is pestering me to knit for him! I knitted a cabled vest for our toddler and my husband decided he would quite like one for himself for golf. I'm worried I would buy all that yarn, knit the thing and then he would only wear it once! So we shall see! :)

  2. I agree with you that Malabrigo does an amazing job on dyeing their yarns. I love their softness and it makes a perfect hat!

  3. We listened to an audio book of The Rats of Nimh a few years ago. Thanks for reminding me!

  4. Ha! I had to laugh - Mr Myrtle has let me knit him a couple of pairs of socks and a hat - but a sweater? No. GIven how long it would take.... I'm actually not too sad - I've decided to sew him a shirt instead. Whether he wants it or not...
