Yarn Along

6:00 AM

It's Wednesday again and that means it is time for the weekly yarn along.  I'm joining with Ginny and everyone for an update on books and yarn.  I flounder for a couple of weeks about what new project to start and decided to cast on another Aviatrix for a new baby to be born in December.  (The due date is Christmas!).  The couple is an airline couple- he's a pilot, she's a flight attendant so this will be the perfect baby present.  I'm knitting it in Patons Silk Bamboo.  (I made C's had with the same yarn and love that is washable and very giving.  C is still wearing hers that I made for her when she was 14 months old.)  The color is Plum and I'm hoping the baby has her mothers coloring as this will be a stunning hat on her! 
 On the book front, I started a new knitting book.  It's a chic lit book that takes place in England.  I'm loving it so far.  It's a light, easy, fun read.  And apparently it's the first in a series.  I must find the others!
I'm almost finished with City of Bones by Michael Connelly, which is good because it is due back to the library in 3 days.  That is one of the things I don't like about reading on my ipad.  I checked out this ebook from the library, but ebooks are not renewable.  I have to return it and then check it out again.  I'm not sure if that is the case with all public libraries or just the Denver Public Library.

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

  1. I know that yarn and it is so soft, just perfect for a wee little head.

    I love the title of your book and just wrote it down so I can read it next, it sounds wonderful. A whole series? Perfect.

  2. That looks like a good book. A Christmas baby is so exciting! I love how you chose the Aviator hat. Great idea!

  3. I like light books after heavy reading. So maybe I'll flip through it when I see it. I love the idea of a wee little hat :)

  4. Gorgeous colour, I've just bought this book, I can't wait to start it, now. Deb x

  5. Oh, I love babies in that color. People always put babies in pastels, and although that's cute, the rich colors just bring out the rosy cheeks so well. I have 2 Christmas babies, so we have a lot of red hand knits around here!

  6. I just checked out my first ebook from my library and it has renew options.
    Cute hat for a wee one.

  7. Love that color, perfect for a december baby.
    Like the sound of that book a lot.

  8. What a fun project! I bet it is so awesome to see a cute little baby in something you knitted for them!

  9. Love the Aviatrix project. Haven't made one yet, but I've seen it several times on Ravelry and have considered it. Maybe I will one of these days. :) I love checking out ebooks from my library too. My only complaint is that a paper book is checked out for 3 weeks, whereas an ebook is only 2 weeks. And you're right...no ebook renewals. You have to go back to the site and check it out again. Oh well. Most of the time, if I check out an ebook I just focus on it and get it done before it's due back. :)

  10. I love the Aviatrix hats. It's on my list of things to knit this new baby! Even have the yarn for it. Need to finish a few other projects first though. I love the color you picked out for yours!

  11. I've read all in the series so far, they're nice and undemanding reads. I enjoyed the seaside setting (I'm English, living here and love the coast.)


I love your comments. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
