Posts Tagged ‘February Baby Sweater’


Yesterday was crazy/busy so I missed yarn along.  Didn’t help that I didn’t even have the pictures waiting on the computer, I still had to download them.  I’m busy today getting ready for Ella’s party this weekend, but it’s ‘coffee break’ time so here I am  🙂

Finished up the baby sweater.  Still need to wrap and drop it off.  I was going to make a bonnet but ran out of yarn.

And of course, I don’t have enough projects on the go so…

I decided to make myself a new scarf.  I have wanted to do this pattern for years.  I love my yarn from Knit Picks, it’s so beautiful and soft.

Not too much pleasure reading going on.  Trying to get Colin’s farm book-keeping finished for 2014 so it can all go to the accountant.  AND if I didn’t have enough to do, Ella has decided she hates Oak Meadow and wants to do more work book type schooling.  I think all the writing/printing in OM just overwhelmed her too much.  So now I have to figure out where to go from here.  I love Sonlight and A Beka and a few other work book type curricula, but WOW are they pricey.
