Yarn Along :: Yay!

Yay ~ because it is yarn along day over at Small Things.  It is so fun to see other people's knitting and to be able to talk about my own.  I know that the ladies over there understand what it feels like to keep passing my knitting project as I walk across the room AND NOT BE ABLE TO KNIT IT!  Whew! It's so hard to wait until later to do it!

Yay ~ because I saw a girl wearing a sweater just like the one I'm knitting at church last week.  I really liked how it looked and I hope mine will be just as "cool".

Yay ~ because I am almost past the boring part (simple stockinette) and onto the lace.  
Yay ~ for yarn overs and knit two togethers and sliping stitches and passing them over!  Stuff like that always looks better then my stockinette.  I just can't get it to look even and neat.

So here is what I have done so far:

After last time's indecision, I decided to knit the sport yarn on the size 9's in the small size (which is a 36-40 bust size).  It still is on the loose side.  I was kinda going for a tighter look but I am crossing my fingers in hopes it will not end up too big.

For what I am reading right now.... ummm.... let's say that I'm giving my brain a break?  Does that sound good?  I really haven't been reading much.  

BUT last year I bought for the family (ok, really for me) this book.  And you know what?  I can't for the life of me think of where it is!

Yay ~ all you yarn along-ers out there.  It has been fun to visit you and hope you enjoyed visiting me!


  1. Your sweater is coming along so nicely. I looked at the pattern page and the stitch pattern on the bottom of your sweater is going to be beautiful. Hopefully it will be a little more exciting to knit too!

  2. The sweater is adorable and the yarn looks great! Greetings from Germany, Nicole.

  3. I think the sweater will be perfect! I love it when I get to the lace part of a pattern.


I love to hear from you!
