Yarn Along {12}

With the busyness of the past weekend, not much knitting got accomplished. I had all intentions of relaxing and knitting as much as possible, as well as reading, but the phone kept ringing and the invites kept coming, so, needless to say, I spent a lot of time talking it up with friends and family, and little time knitting! I'll take it, though! We had a wonderful time!

I am just about ready to cast off on my Watermelon Dress for baby girl. So cute! Cannot wait to show it off next week!

Once I am finished with the Watermelon Dress, I am planning to start on this cute Chevron Baby Blanket in hopes to have it finished before her July arrival. I ordered all 7 skeins of yarn and spent a little time Saturday morning using my new swift to wind it all up! Best birthday present ever! I have had my share of knots one too many times to go without a swift ever again! I even had  the pleasure of some little hands wanting to help as well. They enjoyed it just as much as I did!

I decided on pinks and purples for the blanket and am extremely anxious to see how it all knits up!

While at the library a few weeks back, I came across the book, Chosen by Ginger Garrett, and checked it out. It is a fictional story about Queen Esther that shares a lot of Bible history throughout it as well. Very interesting biblical love story! I am really enjoying it and look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Linking up once again with Ginny!

  1. I have never done well with winding my own yarn. Maybe I need to get one of these swift things :-) I usually just buy balls of yarn at the store, but there is always so much lovely yarn at the fall fairs that I want to get! That book sounds really interesting!

    Love the colors for the blanket - I have also had too many tangles to count trying to make balls of yarn with the skein around my feet or some similar crazy set up! It looks so easy with the swift!
