Yarn Along (no.4)

by Josée

Once again, it’s Yarn Along with Ginny over at Small Things.

As you can see, I continue to work on my fingerless mitts. The brown yarn is a little tricky to work with because it’s so stiff but the orange baby alpaca is so wonderful and soft. I’m getting close the finishing the first mitt. So far I’m quite happy with it… Hubby might not get them after all. Hopefully by next week I’ll be almost finished the pair. If you are wondering, I’m using the Berry Hill Fingerless Mitts pattern from Ravelry.

For my book selection this week I’m reading a few cook books. I received Forgotten Skills of Cooking for the feast of St. Nicholas and I borrowed Meat: A Kitchen Education from the library (it has a long-braise rabbit stew recipe that I’ll be trying out tomorrow). It’s no secret that I really enjoy reading cook books 🙂

Your knits looks lovely, and I read cook books just like there novels, I love them!

Those books look great. I really want to read that first one. My husband has forbidden me from buying any more cookbooks. Haha. He says the recipes are all online anyway…which is true…but you can't really read ABOUT cooking online. I just love knowing everything about cooking because I like eating good food so much. =)

What a beautiful pattern! I just made some fingerless gloves using the moss stitch but they didn't have an actual thumb part, just a hole that your thumb slipped throught so I would love to try this pattern 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your week!

Cookbooks are the best, aren't they? I'll have to check that pattern out, it looks fun!
