yarn along: rib-a-roni and 'the nightingale'


starting Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale
just finished a Rib-A-Roni hat for my purple-loving little boy

Erik picked out the yarn himself (Stonehedge Fiber Mill Crazy) at a lovely yarn shop we happened across in Rochester, Michigan -- Skeins on Main. Definitely worth a visit! Easy, fun pattern -- I like the crown shaping and nice decreases. I'm working on a birthday present for wee Bridget, too -- a knit baby doll like the one I made for Nora's first birthday two years ago. Amy Gaines, the designer, has a new pattern for a sweet mermaid, too, which I may attempt next.

Beautiful yarns and such kindness and really helpful staff. They carry as well Brooklyn Tweed yarns and patterns. I enjoy the blog. Thank -you.
