Yarn Along

 Yesterday I wore a sweater.  It was a light sweater, but a sign none the less that cooler days are coming.
This has been a full summer.  This has been a hot summer.
I have more time for leisurely reading during the indoor months.  I also tend to pick up my knitting more during the cooler months. (ok....I live in MN....lets just say the really COLD months).
And although I enjoy checking out Ginny's Yarn Along most Wednesdays, I have not participated for many, many months.
Well...as it happened....I went to our yarn store yesterday....
then went to the park with my family last night....
with my yarn and needles in my purse.
The perfect time to cast on some stitches for a sweet pair of leg warmers for a special little girl!  And what better way to be accountable to actually get both of those leg warmers finished in a timely manner than to post them on my blog!
And since Ginny's Yarn Along also requires a photo of a book you are reading.....
and since any books that I have read this summer have been passed along to someone else by now....
I will share this book that I have been reading everyday since the beginning of the year.
I found the book while at a thrift store.
It only cost one dollar.
It could very well be the most wealth found in a dollar ever.
There are different authors each day, so some days I really get a lot out of it, and other days...well....not so much.
Since it is my book....and since it was so cheap...I decided that I would write it in if I felt like it.
And I do....
most days.

Thanks for stopping by...
now back to my knitting!

Wonderfully girlie color for the leg warmers!! Your daughter is going to love them.

The blanket that I am knitting only requires knitting and purling. It really is simple and fun...

Blessings, Debbie

What pattern are you using for the leg warmers? Would love to know!

Writing in books is the way to make them one's own. I love to see what my thoughts were in the past when I pick a book up after a time away from it.

Happy knitting!

It has been another cold summer here in Nor Cal. Have worn long pants every day and never felt inclined to go with shorts. Maybe next year !~!

It used to be sooo hard for me to write in a book...but then again "why not"? I have learned to get over it (somewhat) too!
