Yarn Along (no.10)

by Josée

Ginny over at Small Things is hosting Yarn Along today.

Pixie hats are so darn cute! I just finished Sweetpea’s Pixie Hood from the book Baby Beanies: Happy Hats to Knit for Little Heads. The pattern recommends Malabrigo Merino Worsted yarn and this is what I used for the main colour. The yarn was great to work with and is so soft. If it weren’t so pricey I’d be going back for more. 

I’m still working on some of the books from last week but I’ve added a few more to the mix. I borrowed a couple canning and preserving books Put ’em Up! and Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It from the library. I have grande ambitions to attempt some Three Citrus Marmalade this weekend. I’m also reading The Barefoot Book: 50 Great Reasons to Kick Off Your Shoes and seriously contemplating barefoot running.

So cute! I'm in awe of people able to knit. I've tried to learn a few times but as I'm a lefty my teachers gave up and told me to stick to crochet 🙂

The hat is darling! I love the Jam It book, I also borrowed it from the library, and loved it so much that I had to buy it. :o)

I'm so in love with bonnets, and I completely love that yarn as well! If only it weren't so pricey…but sooo soft!

Our fastest runner on the Key West Track team runs barefoot. Except in competitions, they won't let her then.

Oh, that hat is adorable! Can't wait to hear how your jamming endeavors go!

The hat is super cute! I love the white trim detail.
I had the Jam It, Pickle It.. book from the library recently. I loved learning that we can just use the lemon rind and seeds rather than added pectin. But I haven't tried it yet. Good luck with the marmalade!
