I am finally joining Ginny once again for a Yarn Along. I have just begun to get back to knitting in the last few weeks. With a tiny baby, I find it extremely difficult to find the time or free hands. But, I had one UFO (unfinished object) from last Christmas that needed to be finished. It was a hat for hubby. It turned out a lot larger than I had hoped for. He likes it and it is "in" to wear oversized slouchy hats around here, so it fits in. I am not into following fashions, but this fashion worked in my favour. Sorry, that I am the model. It looks better on hubby, I promise.
If you are a child of the 70's or 80's you will hopefully recognize the motif, Space Invaders. My ravelry notes are here.
On the weekend, I began working on my first Milo vest. I love how quickly it is coming together. I am nearly finished. I am just working the bottom section and should have it finished this evening if the baby decides to cuddle with daddy after dinner. I ordered some more yarn to make a few more Milo vests for the other boys and another one for the baby. This baby likes to be warm, really warm. I plan on making the Milos as Christmas gifts. I also have a few more patterns queued on Ravelry for this Christmas. Hopefully hubby will get his gift under the tree this year.
I am also slowly working my way through Into the Free by Julie Cantrell. It is a really good book so far. When I have it in my hands, I can't put it down. Unfortunately, I don't get into my hands very often. This is one of those books where the characters really come alive and you feel like you are right there. It is very gripping so far. I have to hurry and finish it because it is due back at the library on November 2nd.
What have you been working on or reading? Join Ginny and the others at Small Things to see what they have been reading and knitting.
God Bless friends and thank you for stopping by,
UPDATE: My First Milo is finished. It has some growing room and it looks absolutely adorable on my big little guy.
