Yarn Along

For this week's Yarn Along, I'm working on the same hat that I started a couple of weeks ago.  I haven't worked on it much on the weekends at all, what with all that canning, but I have chipped away at it here and there during the week.  It's probably the slowest hat I've ever knit since I have to pay so much attention to the pattern.  Every single row is different!  For those who are curious, the pattern is Habitat, being knit in Bobby Blue Malabrigo Worsted.

I also recently started reading Little House in the Suburbs.  Such an inspiring, and at the same time daunting, read!  I hope to put one (or more) of the chapters on chickens, goats, or bees into practice at some point, but for now, the chapters on gardening, canning, soap- and detergent-making, and handmade gifts are inspiring on the smaller scale.


  1. Your hat is very pretty Joy.
    I am really interested in the book you are reading and will have to order a copy.
    Have a great yarn along day.

  2. Your hat is beautiful! And the book looks fascinating - I'm going to add it to my list (which is growing rapidly since making my way around the Yarn Along posts!).

  3. I cannot believe you are already canning! Your hat is gorgeous. That book sounds very interesting. I have never heard of it. Onto my list it goes. Thanks for sharing!

  4. That cabling is just beautiful. I love the colour too!


I love to hear what you think!
