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.
