Yarn Along (no. 20): Preparing for the Household Waste Challenge

by Josée

I’ve been working hard at getting things in place for next week’s Household Waste Challenge. The challenge goes from April 17th until the 23rd (Earth Week) and everyone is welcome to join. There will be some great posts on how to reduce household waste as well as some exciting giveaways. Make sure to come by and check it out.

The Sorello shirt is finished and I love it. Now that it’s done I have so many things I’d like to knit but no yarn. I did find some yarn for another milo vest though, so that’s what I’m working on right now. Both the shirt and the vest are too big for Sweetpea right now but I’m hoping that they’ll fit her this coming fall. I’ve started reading The Forgotten Garden and I’m really enjoying it. It’s mysterious, intriguing yet somewhat light.

To see what others are knitting this week visit Ginny’s yarn along.

Funny that we're on the same book right now! The vest is going to be sweet, it's such a great colour. 🙂

The Sorello shirt is lovely and the yarn for the milo vest is very pretty. And I almost picked up tht book at Target this week, but passed it by. I really wish I had bought it now. Maybe next time!

I just read the Amazon description of the book you're reading and it looks intriguing. I'll have to add it to my list. And I love the color of the Milo vest you've started. Seems like I'll have to make one some day because it's just so cute.

I love the sorello shirt, especially! Adorable.

Responding to your comment, I liked the Glass Castle– it was absurdly upsetting, but I thought Walls and great writer- plain, simple and to the point.

And I enjoyed perusing your blog. (Cute bunnies!)
