Yarn Along

Comin' into the game a little late (again!) but finally here. Illness has plagued our littlest and she, out of all of our children, has proven to be the most suitable prize winner for the most-pathetic-when-sick award. 

So it's sufficient to say that my knitting has been regretfully neglected these last couple of days. (and don't get me started on reading...)
Which is a total shame, since I've just been sitting anyway while holding a sick baby-she wouldn't have any of this knitting/reading nonsense though...
I decided to start this  cozy little owlie bag for my new infant niece, and hope to do one right after for her equally sweet twin brother-I think i'll make his in teal, I already have the wool and i'm eager to  use it. This was my first project involving cabling, but what can I say, I'm in love! I can't wait to do another cabling project.

All that's left of the first is the stockinette stitch and decreases. Plain stockinette stitch gets a little boring after a while, but it's a good travelling project. I really hope to finish these before they get too big for them though, they're growing quickly!


  1. it! you are soooo talented!

  2. Love the owl bag! I have a friend due soon and this would work great! Hope your little one gets to feeling better.

  3. I do love the color of this project. I agree with the last comment, you are talented! Can't wait to see the finished project. Enjoy the rest of the week.

  4. Very sweet project. Lovely colour for weev girl.

    Hope things return to normal soon.

  5. Oh your poor little one. And poor you! Tending sick kids is not fun at all. You are showing some lovely knitting there :)
