Yarn Along




Hello, joining Ginny this week for the yarn along. Not that I have time for knitting ;)but a hat for little Nalah Penelope is in the works with some stash yarn and left overs from this sweet cocoon.
  I just finished a beautiful book called Astrid and Veronika by Linda Olsson. A touching book about an unlikely friendship between two women . This book was heartbreaking but also uplifting and tender. In all honesty I bought it on a whim from a thift store because I liked the cover ( I can't help it I'm a visual person) but I really truly enjoyed this story. It is a good winter read.
                                     While I am at it I  thought I would share a few  more recent knits. Ben and Sollie in their coordinating hats. Ben's hat was his annual Birthday gift and Solomon needed an upgrade(he is growing up so fast!)I found the perfect yarn for Ben at the Fiber festival this year, There was a time he asked for a dark blue hat with flecks of brown and green..taaa daaa. I found the perfect hand spun skein just calling out his name... I used the wee bit of leftovers from his Papas hat plus some  green Patons wool to make Sollie's.
