Yarn Along

It's cold and miserable and rainy outside, so I've found my most colorful project bag and taken a photo on the most colorful rug in the house and am refusing to look out the window.  I will have to go out there eventually to get the girls from school, but I'm trying not to think about that now. Right now, Sadhbh is having her nap, Osgar has fallen asleep on the couch, the bread is rising in the kitchen and I've got a hot cuppa tea.

 I'm still tipping away on my Whisper.  I'm up to the short rows, need to prepare myself for those.  I read somewhere that Cat Bordhi has a good video tutorial. The ones that I've done on soakers in the past have always been quite obvious, I'd like to try to make these as invisible as possible. I used an I-cord bind off on the collar, it looks fab. I love learning a new trick.

I cast on a hat for Osgar yesterday. He seems to have lost his last one somewhere and I can't help feeling anything but happy to have to knit him a new one . . . I haven't  even really looked that hard for it. I'm using the same Man Hat pattern and Malabrigo Worsted.

I'm reading the kids The Secret Garden. They are enjoying the story, but I think they are getting the biggest kick out of my Yorkshire accent. Osgar keeps saying "mum, how can you talk like that!"
It's quite fun actually.

Happy Knitting!


  1. That's such a pretty rug. Nothing better than something colorful on a gray and rainy day.

  2. very colorful indeed! it should certainly help to chase away the grey :)

    the secret garden was and still is one of our favorite read alouds.

  3. Short rows are not that difficult just a little tricky to wrap your head around, at least for me! Lovely yarn. Can't wait to see the sweater.

  4. A hot cuppa tea...you sound like me :)

    The Secret Garden, such a great book. Looking forward to reading it aloud to my little man one day.
