Yarn Along

6:00 AM

It's time once again to share yarn and book.  This week was fairly productive...I finished the Aviatrix. Twice.  Well, actually I was almost finished with the hat part when I decided it was too big and ripped it out.  It was looking a tad large, so I put it on C's head, where it fit making it much to big for a newborn.  I started over going down one size and I think it will be perfect for this fall.

I bought this yarn at a crafting thrift store in Portland, OR.  My plan is to make a sweater for C since it's got pink in the yarn.

The three skeins of yarn equal to 6oz.  Using the conversion I found on google, I figure I have approximately 300 yards of yarn.  I'm thinking it might have to be a vest or I'll have to find some yarn that will kind of highlight or go with this yarn.  I'm not sure what brand it is as it had no wrapper.  I'm open to all suggestions on how to proceed.

On the book front, I finished The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd.  I highly recommend the book.  Fabulous.  Read it.
