Yarn Along {17} + a giveaway

Summer is officially over. Grandma and Grandpa closed up their swimming pool until next year. The leaves are already starting to change from bright green to golds and reds, and {home}School started back for us yesterday. With all these changes, I am finding it easier to slow down a bit and get back into our routine. The last few weeks found us trying to fit in all the things we wanted to do before the end of summer - which resulted in long, fun, days and not much time at home to relax.

Books and knitting are finding their way back into my daily routine. How I've missed them both.Something about the coziness of Falls coming has made me even more desperate to be holding the needles and soft fiber in my fingers again. I decided to start back again with something for myself! Something easy and that would knit up quickly. I decided on a chunky cowl. I chose to knit it in my favorite color, for clothing, grey! This will be nice and snuggly to throw on and go and add a little style to my mommy wardrobe! 

I decided to borrow from the library Killing Lincoln after some homeschool friends of mine recommended it! I haven't started it yet, but from what I have read from others reviews and from the cover itself, it sounds like it is going to be an enjoyable read!

And speaking of enjoyable reads, I have a wonderful giveaway going on for one of my latest good reads! Details on how to win are found here! Hurry though...this giveaway ends tonight!!

  4. You can never ever have too many gray cowls! I love that color so versatile and so very "in". Yours will knit up fast in that chunky weight!

  5. A cowl sounds like the perfect gift for yourself. Good luck with homeschooling, we started home preschool this year.

  7. The cowl looks lovely! I love seeing mamas knitting for themselves! I'll have to add that book to my list, it sounds just up my alley. I'm happy to have found your blog through the link up, I'm sharing leg warmers this week. Happy knitting!
