knitlandia

Yarn Along with Ginny and co. on this sunny Wednesday morning:
Still reading Knitlandia (my goodness, does this book make me want to travel and knit) and knitting my Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief. As I'd hoped, the easy pattern is good for my knitting mojo and getting back in the crafting habit. With two little ones, a full-time job, and an old house that we haven't fully settled into yet, I need to have something pleasant but mindless to work on. Now I feel inspired to stock the cozy corners of the house with knitting baskets with projects that don't require too much concentration.

Bridget tried out the swing for the first time and loved it! Her beautiful Pomander cardigan was knit by Rue. So gorgeous and cozy -- Bridget has worn this a great deal over the winter and spring. Definitely a pattern I'd like to knit.

Bridget is getting to be so big! She looks like such a fun and cheerful little one!
I always need to have at least one mindless project going -- and I don't even have little ones around!

Oh hey! I know that pattern! :D Warms my heart to know that Bridget has one.

Rue said...

I'm so glad it fits! She's absolutely adorable. How is Eric enjoying big brotherhood these days?

I was looking at this post with E and she announced, "baby! That's me!" when she saw the picture of Bridget.

I hope all is well!

Glad you are getting some crafting in. I read Knitlandia during some travel in Apr. It was a quick read, so I'll have to find time to enjoy it again. (sjn821 on Rav)
