Yarn Along

5:30 AM

It's Wednesday and that  means it's time again for the weekly yarn along.  Books and knitting.  Two of my favorite things.  I did get some time this week to do both!  I worked on the Miranda hat, my 5x5x5 blanket and my log cabin blanket.   I got quite a bit done on the hat.  Now that the Olympics are over I should make even more progress since I won't have to work backwards!  Hopefully I'll finish this week or at least come close.  We are going to a reunion in Gettysburg and I think during nap time I'll get some quality knitting time in.

I finished The True Story of Hansel and Gretel written by Louise Murphy.  I highly recommend this book.  It is a bit disturbing, but then again most of World War II is pretty disturbing.  A co-worker and I were talking about it.  Can you imagine dropping off your 7 and 11 year old in the woods  because it is their best chance for survival?  Completely beyond my realm of comprehension.  

I picked up these two books at the library this week.  I don't have bees yet, but by next spring I hope to be set up so I thought I'd pick up the book.  I'm pretty excited to read the canning book.  I make a lot of stuff out of the garden, but I think there are some interesting sounding recipes.

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

  1. Thanks for the book recommendation, I will add it to the never ending reading list (that I love). Wow, bees!!!

  2. Yeah, that kind of boggles my mind, too.

  3. I'm glad to hear you are making more progress on the blankets, that's fantastic! The Miranda hat design is also loads of fun!

  4. I am jealous of everyone making miranda hats! My mum tells the most interesting stories about her life in WWII..nothing as drastic as told in the book, but still ???

  5. I'm always in awe of knitters that have more than one project going. I'm a "one project at a time" gal myself... ;-)

  6. I feel the same way about watching the olympics and knitting, that's why I had to switch to just doing a plain knit stitch.
    How exciting to be getting bees. I am allergic, but I think I have just about talked my husband into getting some, he'll take care of the outside work and I'll do the inside work with the honey and comb.

  7. Glad you enjoyed the book. How exciting about the prospect of bees. Jacinta

  8. Looking forward to seeing pics of your Miranda Hat! I love bees.
