Another Cobblestone Vest came off the needles and I was happy to come up with the idea of using one of Renee's sweet granny squares as a pocket. I used size eight needles and worsted weight merino/mohair wool from Peace Fleece to make a size 6 - 12 months. The buttons are hemlock from our property that our son, Nolan,made.
The cowl I wrote about a couple of weeks ago that I was working on with this yarn from my local yarn shop was coming out too small, so I decided to pull it apart and start something new. I found this pattern and am crocheting an adult hat. Hopefully I will be able to share some good results next week.
Also, so happy to be reading two good books. The first is Minding Frankie by Maeve Binchy - a nice fiction read that is just my speed.
The other is Plenty, One Man, One Woman, and a Raucous Year of Eating Locally. I found this copy in our local thrift store for just a quarter. Of course I am enjoying it and it really makes me think about how our family could work harder to eat more local food and keep working toward producing more of our own as well.
I am really looking forward to checking out all of the knitting projects at Ginny's Knit Along today to get some more ideas for Christmas creating.
