Yarn Along

Weeks of sick are over and we are on the home straight to good health again. Osgar is back at kinder since yesterday, after five weeks of having him home. That was no mean feat I'll tell ya. FIVE weeks! So I got to hang out with my little Sadhbh by herself for a few hours, and it made me realise,  this is the first time I've ever hung out with a *nearly* two year old by themselves before.  When the other three kids were two I'd have been heavily preggo or nursing a newborn.  She is very sweet and funny.  I'm looking forward to next year. I feel like I am on the home straight with the baby thing too.

I'm knitting Milo number three with some Noro I picked up at a farmers market recently.  I only got two balls (she had four!) I don't know what I was thinking and I wonder why I always do this to myself.  I should have gotten all four.  When I saw the new Georgie Hallam design 'Griffin'  on Kate's blog I instantly thought of my two balls of Noro. In the end I had enough to make a nine months old size.  Unfortunately Osgar the intended recipient of said Griffin is four.  So, I decided that if I got a ball of black wool I could make him a Milo with a striped body and that might also look good.

I'm using Noro Kureyon and its a worsted weight so I'm knitting the 12 months old size with 5mms and the sizing is looking good at this stage.  I'm reading the girls the 'Mysteries collection' another of what seems like a million Enid Blyton books.

Happy Knitting!


  1. Amon, I'm the same way, always kicking myself for not grabbing a few more skeins when it's a good deal! Your vest will look so handsome in Noro.

    If you're looking for a way to use up odds and ends of worsted, I just shared a free vest pattern that might appeal.


  2. Your poor little poppet being sick for so long. Fingers crossed you all stay well for the remainder of the year! The vest is looking very sweet. I love Noro. I recently bought a couple of skeins of my first lot of Noro. Still not sure what to do with it. Our local yarn shop has closed, I think it is reopening with new owners, but not sure if they are going to stock everything the last people did. They had the best stash of Noro. Apparently there was a 50% off sale before they closed. I missed it! So sad. Jacinta

  3. Doesn't Griffin look like a great pattern! Lovely to find your blog through yarnalong! http://www.justonewip.blogspot.co.nz/
