Yarn Along

I am knitting several things at the moment. Pictured above is one of the mittens I have completed with the second on the needles. I am also knitting my first lacy shawl as kind of a test to see if I can do it. Because it is a test for me I am using up some not so nice stash yarn that is a light fingering weight. The yarn is mostly nylon but it is a bit rough once knit up and not very elastic. No pic because it doesn't look very interesting yet since I am just on the set up rows. I have knit very little lace and it is something I would like to improve this year. And the third non-hibernating project on my needles right now is this doll for my little girl (below) which I hope to have done by her birthday but it is knit on US 2.5 or 3 needles with Knit Picks palette yarn so it is slow going. For reading: again blogs but I started Organized Simplicity today on the Ipad although I didn't get far. We will see if I have the attention span to finish it. :) Go see Ginny for more Yarn Along fun (check out her new button down at the bottom of the post!)


  1. Yay for mittens! That's what I'm knitting this week, too:) And I can't wait to see how your waldorf doll turns out. I made one last year for my daughter, but not the felted kind. That looks like a really cool project!

    1. Thanks, I hope it turns out well. :) I wanted to make her one but I am not a very proficient seamstress and I didn't want to buy a bunch of supplies I wasn't sure I would use to sew her a doll. But I can always put yarn that doesn't get used to good use!

  2. The mitt is such a pretty variety of neutral colors.

  3. I cannot wait to see the lace project when you get farther along. Love the pink doll very very much!
