Yarn Along

For this week's Yarn Along, I'm working on a new project, a project I had in mind when I visited Purl Soho little more than a week ago. I picked out this Manos del Uruguay Maxima in Artic Shadow.  The turtleneck portion is finished, and I'm ready to start the body.  Unfortunately, I've been hit with a bout of sickness this week, which has made for very little knitting, and even less reading, but I'm starting to feel a bit better so hopefully I can make some progress on my sweater this weekend.

Finn and I have been reading through Moominland Midwinter since I brought it back from NYC for him.  The other kids have listened to bits and pieces of it.  All 3 boys are a bit Moomin obsessed and particularly enjoy the Moomin comic books.

I did manage, before I got sick, to finish Elizabeth's socks for her birthday.  I misjudged her tiny feet just a bit and made the foot part a bit short for her.  I'll probably rip out the toes on both socks and add an extra 1/2-3/4 of an inch to give her a bit more room. Overall she likes them though, especially the colors.


  1. I hope you feel better soon. Lovely blues in the photos and it's nice when you can quickly adjust a sock! Stay healthy :)

  2. I love both of those yarns!! So pretty!!

  3. O the socks in your header!!! That's so happy!!


I love to hear what you think!
