Yarn Along

I have to say that over the last 2 weeks I haven't spent nearly as much time knitting as I've spent sewing (you can see the fruits of that here), but I am starting to get back to these socks that I started a couple of months ago.  They are scraps from other socks and a cowl that I made. I think they'll make nice cozy autumn socks for Finn.  To say we've been reading The Children of Noisy Village is an understatement.  My kids are obsessed with this audiobook!  We've had the chapter book for years, but the audiobook has been on constant play in my car for the last month or so.  We probably listen to the entire 2+ hour book every other day or so. (If you haven't read this, do yourself, and your children, a favor and fork over the $3.50 on

I also finished the little pixie cap from last week, and it's ready to be shipped out to a friend.


  1. Must be Spring that turns our hands to sewing instead of knitting! Same situation here, with a bit of spinning thrown in!

  2. we are in love with audiobooks these days. I'll be sure to check this one out.

  3. Knit, sew, knit, sew... both are calling so loudly! Such a cute knitted cap. :)

  4. It looks like you might be knitting up odds and ends of sock balls or you are designing with two colors, love the contrasting orange :) Makes the socks "pop"!

  5. We've loved the Noisy Village picture books, but I haven't read any of the longer ones. What ages would you suggest them for?

  6. I love the socks - so pretty how you've used up the left over yarns. We've not read the Children of the Noisy Village - shall put it on our list. Enjoy your spring days!

  7. Hello Joy,

    I found your book blog a long time ago and have migrated here.
    Hard to beat the deliciousness of that sock and book.
    Looking forward to continued reading.

    Trish :)


I love to hear what you think!
