Knitting This Week

6:00 AM

It's Wednesday and that means it is time for the weekly Yarn Along.  I'm joining with Ginny and everyone to share books and yarn!  I actually worked on some knitting this week but reading was non existent.  Thank you to everyone who made suggestions last week on baby knits.  I am making a woobie for one gift and decided on a bath set for another.  I will make some wash clothes and then bundle it with some other of our favorite bath products.

So.  The Woobie.  What's a woobie?  I didn't even know it was a name of a thing.  It is a small blanket with an animal head for cuddling.  This is a woobie!  I am making a pink and grey woobie which is actually coming together quite easily minus the few mistakes I made with counting stitches.

 It starts with a provisional cast on and the grey section is actually much wider, but it is doubled over on the yarn over section to make the pretty edge.  I made undoing the provisional cast on much harder than it needed to be only because I was traveling and didn't have the foresight to bring an extra set of needles to unravel the crochet edge.  So I had to do it one stitch at a time. Took quite some time.

I am reading book number three of the Ruth Galloway series, The House at Sea's End by Elly Griffiths.  Ruth Galloway is an archeologist specializing in bones who helps solve murders!  I think the books get one I thought was just ok, but I'm really enjoying the series now.   The last week was spent with family, so while we are a family of readers, we spent more time talking and catching up than reading!

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

  1. I am so glad I Googled 'woobies' after you mentioned them as they are adorable! I didn't know they had a name - I just called them blankies. Are you making an elephant with the pink and grey? Cannot wait to see how it turns out.

  2. love your woobie and the colors are perfect!! Interesting construction :)

  3. I never knew what a woobie was, but now I do. Emerson's Lovey is a woobie.
    I love that you unraveled the crocheted edge without extra needles, you are a
    dedicated knitter for sue!

  4. I always thought a woobie was a blanket a child carried around. But now I know! Can't wait to see how it turns out.

  5. I did one once with an elephant head!!! your puppy-head is adorable!!!

  6. A woobie sounds awesome to me...and actually I have three little ones that would probably enjoy such a present. Maybe for Christmas.

  7. That's an excellent idea - more fun that a baby blanket (and way cuter :))


I love your comments. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
