:: Yarn Along :: The Finished Version

Joining Ginny, over at small things, again with yarn along. A single photo of a current knitting or crocheting project with a current read. I am really loving these posts, taking a moment to think about what and why I'm knitting or reading. I read...a lot. And I knit...not as much as I'd like but I do have 2-4 projects going either on the needles or in my brain.

I do love seeing what others are knitting and can always use some reading suggestions! Leave a comment so I can see what you're up to. And go over to Ginny's to see what others are up to.

I'm totally cheating but I have four projects to show off that are all COMPLETED!!!!!!!!

First up is Mr. Wiedz's hat! After the tearing out and the small needles and the small yarn I thought I would never finish this but I did! And right in time...the tempatures around here have taken a serious dive and Mr. Wiedz has sported his new hat everyday to keep his ears and head warm! Yay!

Next up is #2's sweater! Also a huge undertaking! As I got closer and closer if #2 would see me working on it he would comment that he was so eager to wear it. Such a sweetie! And as soon as it was off the needles it was on his person. A little itchy but blocking helped and he's loving it! Yay! Success #2!

I actually finished this puerperium a month or two ago but just now got buttons put on and got photographed. I found this pattern thanks to yarn along and had just found out I was pregnant with #6. Perfect timing. It was awesome to knit. And though I followed the pattern I think it turned out longer than ones I've seen and potentially longer than a baby needs but I still love it. I did not find out the gender of #6 but as you can see I have high hopes that we are expecting a little girl to finish our family :)

When my cousin Scary was here last weekend she mentioned that her little SoySauce had grown out of the hat that I had given her when he was born...oh, that just can't be. I had this chunky yarn laying around from making a Gnomey Hat for #5 and cast on the same beginning but didn't do the rows at the top. Still pointy but I made sure I had enough yarn. Love chunky yarn...and number 10 needles...knit up in two days!

And now...
On the needles :: a Christmas present. Can't say for who. Can't say what it is. But I've started. Ravelry notes here.

On the nightstand :: I could only take "John Adams" for so long before I had to move on to something a little more...fiction. #2 is reading Harry Potter book 2 and it got me in the mood for my own HP adventure. So, Harry Potter book 7. Since I've read it so many times now I can just read a chapter (or not even a whole chapter) a night and be just fine.

Sometimes the buttons can really stall the finish! Love the little puerperium and hope your wish is granted.
Lovely sweater and hat for your sweeties.
Enjoy the red number - lovely colour.
