Autumn Yarn Along

Joining with Ginny again this week for the Yarn Along.  I’m finally getting around to finishing a book Kortney loaned me ages ago.  It has many lessons I need to learn, and am glad to have picked it up again (and she’ll be glad to have it back soon – didn’t mean to have it so very long!).

Finishing up the Pickles Vest this morning.  Only the buttons left to sew on.  It’s made from leftover bits of Lamb’s Pride.  The pattern had been on my Ravelry queue for a very long time, and last week there were several folks in the Yarn Along working on it – seemed like a good time to make one.

It knitted up quite dense and a bit small for George, so the next try will be on 10s instead of 9s.

Also enjoying thumbing through these that just came from the library, especially this one.

Looking forward to catching up on what the other participants are knitting (which will have to happen after the kiddos are in bed).

  • How lovely! It is wonderful you could make the vest from leftover yarn, that is always such an accomplishment. The colours are very nice too!

  • Love the vests! I saw the one on SouleMama a while ago and really wished I knew how to knit. Maybe if I ever have another kid I’ll have learned by then. Baby boys in vests = perfection.

  • Thanks for stopping by OneAcreFollies! I’m so glad to have found you. I saw your post about the cover crops. I have been wondering how we would do that and not till. I’m so excited. We are hoping to get chickens next year.
    I might be ready for socks. We’ll see. 🙂

  • Oh the little vest looks lovely Angela…the colours go so well with your reading choice…Making Room.

    Thanks for introducing me to Pickles…it’s new to me, I’ve just been checking out some of their lovely patterns.

    Your other books choices look interesting too…as an artist, “Artist Handmade House” appeals…and Craft Activism, intriguing. I’ve just had a quick browse on Amazon…love the knit bombing…I’ve seen a few examples round Oxford and London…sounds fun!

    Happy knitting

  • He’s generally in the 12-18mo. range. It’s great that you’re blogging so much! Sorry about the sleep trouble, though. Jesse often struggles with that.

  • I love your Pickles vest. It’s very sweet.
    Thanks for commenting on my blog. You asked about the donuts. Yeah, they went over great. I used Pioneer Woman’s recipe. I didn’t realize the recipe made so many. I did only have one. Ten times.
    This morning I made luscious cinnamon rolls, no recipe for that, I just dump stuff in until it comes out right. I have not read the book you mentioned, but I should — I am hopeless at true hospitality, very insecure, and at 40 years of age I really should get over that. Thanks for visiting. 🙂

  • I got so caught up in browsing those books—I almost forgot to comment!!!! and thank you!

    love the little pickles, too! very very cute! (and something from what could have been leftover nothings! perfect!)

  • Oh, I love that little vest! I can’t remember who made one last year or so, that made me bookmark the page, but I’ve been admiring it for a while. I might just have to buy the pattern so I can make it for Julia. The colors you chose are lovely. 🙂
    You are enjoying ‘Craft Activism’? I’ve been wanting to borrow it from the library for a while but it hasn’t made it to the top of the queue yet. I may have to shift it up a bit! xo
