Yarn Along (no.7)

by Josée

Happy New Year! It’s Yarn Along with Ginny over at Small Things. I’ve been in a knitting groove these last couple weeks. I finally finished my fingerless mitts and started a new knitting project (which was inspired by Ginny). I’m knitting a Milo vest for Sweetpea and I’m almost done! I think it’ll look adorable when finished so I may need to knit more in different sizes and colours.

As you can see I’m reading Small Steps For Catholic Moms, my SIL bought it for me this Christmas and I’ve been dutifully (so far) reading it everyday. I’m really enjoying its encouragements and simplicity. Hubby and I also decided to do a read through of the Bible together and we’re using this list as a guide. And… I’ve been trying to read Masquerade. I’m not sure why I just took out another huge stack of books from the library, even the lady and the checkout desk gave me a funny look.

Very pretty yarn!! When I first read the title of your book, I thought that it was this book:
http://www.amazon.com/Maskerade-Terry-Pratchett/dp/006105691X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1294237113&sr=1-1

LOL Which is nothing like it 😉

Love the yarn… may have to get the pattern for Milo. I know my little is always cold. Just like her daddy, that one!

I'm knitting this vest, too! But I am stumped by how to cast on after the shaping of the arm holes … I just posted about my dilemma. I'm sure I'll figure it out, but I just don't get it at the moment. And I have that book, too, and should really pick it up again … Oh, and I like your yarn. Very rich!

P.S. Thank you so much for the tips on the Milo vest. I will take a look at the video and see if it helps me make more sense out of my dilemma =)
