Yarn Along

So the legwarmers are almost done! Just a few more rows, weaving in those loose ends and then I will have cozy warm legs this winter. I want to try making the next pair on my knitting machine, flat knit and sewn.

Now to find my next project - not sure about that yet! Perhaps mittens or wrist warmers will be next? I need to take another trip to Michael's this weekend. I am also working on some handspun at the moment, but it will be a while before I have it ready for a knitting project.

In the future I might include spinning projects for Yarn Along Wednesdays. I do more spinning than any other fibre arts and I'm really excited about my new adventures in wool dyeing!!!

The cooler weather had me feeling all cozy and happily nostalgic so I got out my Little House books. I don't think I am going to go through the whole series right now (or maybe I will - who knows), I've read them so many times, but I was really in the mood for these lovely pioneer tales - I love them utterly and completely!

What have you been reading and knitting?

I love those colors! I've been making my kids leg warmers for this fall...I'm finally finished and I can make myself some! I found you through the link up, I'm sharing toddler leg warmers and my mama scarf this week. Happy knitting!
