Yarn Along

For this week's Yarn Along, I'm still working on Elizabeth's Shalom.  It's turning out to be even bigger than mine, I think, and of course, she's a skinny little thing.  I may make it plenty long then felt it a little bit.  We'll see how it is when I try it on her.  I'm not loving this yarn, although she does, and that's what matters. I've had little time for reading this week except to the littles.  Finn's new submarine book has received plenty of attention.  I guess I've read that more than anything else this week.


I took a break from knitting yesterday and made Finn some new fun pants.  He loves his elastic waisted pants with all of the loud prints and it's been a while since I made him any. This fabric was on sale at Joann's and is very Finn.



Getting sassy in his new pants!

  1. Joy, that is a great idea to make the sweater a little longer and then felt it, I never would have thought of that, but will remember from now on.
    Your Finn looks like adorable in his pants, they look great.

  7. I love the pants! I used to make pants for my girls with ruffles on the cuffs. They're too old for ruffles now but I bet they would accept some comfy flannel pj pants if I made them...
