Joining Ginny for the Yarn Along.
I know, I know, it doesn’t sound all that different from what I normally do. It is, though, and here’s why: I got hooked up recently with a barter group in my area. When I looked around our house I wasn’t sure if had much to trade (other than baby girl clothes – we have tons of those) but then I found out some of the people are interested in handknits and handmade toys. Those I can do well, so I reached out to a someone about a trade and sent her some pics of my stuff and she loved it all! She’s a fellow homeschool mama who was looking for some stuff for her daughter and her photography business, so I put together a package that I’m working on this week – a handknit baby photo prop set and a couple of wooden gnomes. In exchange, we are getting a nearly new elliptical machine, which I’m very excited about.
I didn’t see one pattern for the hat that had all the features I wanted so came up with my own. I’ll post notes when it’s finished.
For reading, I finished listening to the Yarn Harlot’s first book and have moved on the her second, another book full of humorous knitting anecdotes and tips. Perfect to listen to while knitting.
