Yarn Along {16}

My knitting has been slow going these past few weeks! The reason - I have been spending most all of my time snuggling with my precious, baby girl, Heidi!


However, this weekend found me knitting away again and it was so very good! The feel of the yarn gliding through my fingers does something to relax me and I fall in love with the craft all over again!

I managed to knit a few more rows on Caleb's Little Hoodlum. This pattern, so far, is a very easy and enjoyable knit. The yarn is scrumptious and is knitting up so nicely. It is going to make the most snuggly sweater for him to wear this coming winter, in his favorite color to boot!

I have been telling myself that the next thing I cast on will be for me! As much as I love knitting things for my children, I have yet to knit anything simply for me! I was gifted this yummy grey yarn and the shawl pattern, Piper's Journey - perfect to wrap around me this fall - that I am thinking will be my next knit.  We will see how long this lasts as I still want to knit Heidi another sweater to match her Quick Change Trousers, as well as a few knitted toys that Emma and Caleb have been requesting forever for me to make!

I have been reading the most wonderful book, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. It is a book I believe everyone should read! If you have yet to read this book, go, buy it, and start reading it...now! It is a beautiful, beautiful, book! One whose story will stay with me for a long time! I am sad to almost be finished with it!

What have you been up to lately?


Linking up with Ginny!
