Yarn Along

5 Jun

Joining in on the Yarn Along at Small Things.

Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs.  I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?

I finally finished Charlie’s blanket (post on that to come) and am now working on my first double-pointed needle project in the round. It’s a hat, for one of the many sweet little babies that are getting ready to join the world this summer! Y’all, DPN (double pointed needle) projects are haaaaaaard. I’ve pulled it apart three times and am close to doing it again. Joining properly, geting the increases and decreases right….they are all super difficult when you’re dealing with so many needles.

I just started reading the Baby-led Weaning Cookbook (after finishing the first Baby-led Weaning book). Charlie is going to be six months in a week and he’s just about ready to start eating solid foods! So far his only source of nourishment has been from his mama, and I’m excited to see how he enjoys different types of food! If you’ve never heard of baby-led weaning, this site is a good resource. I also love all the info from Nina Planck’s Real Food for Mother and Baby: simple, just the way I like it!

Inspired after reading Kristen’s posts over at Snow Joy, I thought I’d join in the Yarn Along that goes on every Wednesday at Small Things. I don’t know that I’ll be posting every Wednesday (at this point in life, you’d be seeing a lot of the same things), but I’d like to do it at least once a month.

Right now, I’m finishing up Charlie’s Chevron Blanket and reading Bill Bryson’s Notes from a Small Island. It feels so good to finally be nearing the end of this blanket, since I started it when I was pregnant with him. It’s an easy enough pattern, but I’m just now getting to the point where I actually have time to knit again. The best is when I’m sitting with him, waiting for him to nod off, and he just watches my needles clackity-clack together. I think he really enjoys seeing all of the different colors of yarn in this blanket.

I just started Notes from a Small Island, thinking it might be fun to get a perspective on the UK from a resident who is just returning. I had flipped through it at Barnes and Noble back in the States, but already I’m enjoying it much more since I can better picture the things and places he describes.
