Yarn Along...


Well I am being WAY more realistic lately. I just do not have any time for myself at all these days and if I do it comes in very, very small pieces. But I was just itching to make something with my Malabrigo yarn so I decided to start a pair of fingerless arm warmers for the fall. I have made literally hundreds of fingerless toddler mitts but never a pair for myself. So there you go, easy peasy summer knitting overwhelmed mama parenting three kids alone all week style. These should be great for rock hunting and agate hunting at the ocean this fall :)
My reading choice this week is just the same instant gratification and inspiring eye candy style. I have heard about Taproot via Soulemama's blog but after I opened it up in the grocery store the other day I just had to treat myself with a copy. I have skimmed through the art and photography which is just fantastic but have yet to read any of the articles yet. I am waiting to have a cup of coffee or tea in hand and napping children and then I will take this outside to enjoy in peace. ( should I mention that I have been trying to make this happen for two weeks now?) goodness :) 
 I though it was neat how my yarn and my reading were so coordinated this week too.
What are you reading and knitting these days? Yarn Along with Ginny!

I LOVE that colorway and glad you are making something for YOU! I have had my eye on Taproot several times as well, but have never made the plunge.

Taproot looks wonderful! I love the colours in that yarn!
Fingerless gloves will be perfect for it :)

I have just found your blog from weekend knitter, so I thought I would say hello!

I love the colours in your mitts, and the yarn looks so soft. I have been making mitts too, but woven, they are so practical, love'm.

Lovely colours in your yarn which matches perfectly with that cover!
Enjoy the mitts - I have a crochet pair in progress - really should finish them before the end of winter.

Have a wonderful weekend.
