Yarn Along!



It’s been a delightful week here so far with cooler temps and RAIN!!  Oh how I love a good stormy, dark day in an area that has incredibly hot, blistering summers.  We’ve been enjoying doing inside things this week, reading more, knitting more and I’ve been gearing up to start school with the girls.  Maybe we’ll start in another week though.  Poppy, our new 7th little blessing, has NOT settled on a schedule yet. . . but that’s okay.  We’re so enjoying her newness.  New babies bring such a sweetness to a home.  I’ve been working on a sweater for her this Fall, a gorgeous wool yarn, hand dyed by Ginny over at Small Things.  And I’m joining her in this Yarn Along!  The girls and I have been enjoying reading stories from Parables from Nature lately and I pick up my knitting whenever I get the chance.

Lazy Sunday Afternoon

I think Mabel suspects things will change in a few weeks. . . she’s been extra attached to Oresti lately.

Still can’t believe she’ll soon be a big sister!


A Sweater for Luli


Finally finished this sweater for my oldest, Luli!!  I’ve got lots more of this same color, so I think I’ll be making some more little girl sweaters soon:) Had to take a break though and work on something in a different color, so I’m currently working on a green sweater for myself.  I also need to look for another lace pattern.  I LOVE this pattern but I’ve used it now for Mabel’s baptism dress, this sweater and I’ll use it for my sweater.  So I think it’s time to branch out:)

I loved taking Luli out in our woods and photographing her.  Of course the kitties followed us and even posed, haha!  Oh and I also made her little country dress for Easter this year.  It was such a simple dress and I was able to use scraps that I had, but seeing her face light up when I was finished with it was just priceless!!  I love how unspoiled these girls are, hoping they stay that way!!
