Yarn Along (no.8)

by Josée

Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading so today I’m joining Ginny over at Small Things for her Yarn Along. At the end of last week I finished Sweetpea’s Milo vest and I am very happy with the way it turned out. I will definitely be knitting more of these in the near future.

Last weekend I searched for my next knitting project and came up with two that I want to start. The first is a Pixie Hood from Baby Beanies: Happy Hats to Knit for Little Heads.

The second is the Vintage Petti hat and dress designed by Kate Oates over on Ralvery. I am hoping to have the dress done in time for Easter. I haven’t started either of the projects because I’m lacking a crucial component: yarn. Things have been very busy around here with the addition of our new international student and I haven’t yet ventured to the yarn store. Until then I will have to be content with reading my books which are Love on a DimeGrowing up in a Korean Kitchen: A Cookbook and The Read-Aloud Handbook.

Great job! It's sooo adorable!
And that dress. Oh, my! I think I need to look that one up. I, too, need to head to the yarn store! It's snowing outside, but I'm dying to get out.
Your green, sunny background makes me long for spring…
Cheers from Chilly Latvia!

My knitting project this week has been a pixie bonnet for my little girl, one I found free on Ravelry.

I so want to start a Milo soon myself! Yours looks wonderful!

Hey, have you thought of looking on etsy for yarn? I ordered the yarn for a baby shower gift I made from there and it was great. You can find really great wool for cheaper than the yarn store I bet.

@ Chelsea… no I haven't checked Etsy for yarn. Thanks for the tip!
