After a super hot week last week, I had to put a wool vest on Emmy yesterday morning.
The cool and wet weather found us starting a fire in the wood stove - with the clothes dryer beside it and beans cooking on top of it.
Perfect weather for knitting! (although, almost anytime is a good time to knit, right?)
I finished the bonnet in super soft baby alpaca using the largest size pattern from Vintage Knits for Modern Babies. It is a good fit for an autumn cap for Emmy.
This hat also came off the needles - a simple knit 2, purl 2 rib for the first few inches, cast on of 80 stitches on size 8 needles using a beautiful soft merino yarn. It fits a woman's head snugly and makes a nice fit for a youth.
Finally, a sock is working out for me - on four double pointed needles, using this pattern.
As for reading, I finished Greenhorns last night and am looking for another good read. But, also it is time for me to plan out the next home learning year. Any good suggestions for web sites, catalogs, etc using mostly a Charlotte Mason approach?
So happy to be joining in with Ginny's Yarn Along again this week.
