yarn along

This week I've been working on the same secret Christmas present. It doesn't look like much except for miles of ribbing, so I figured it's safe to show here. I've been relishing the mindless knitting involved in this project. Knit two, purl two. Ah. It's a stress reliever, for sure. Check out my Ravelry page to see more details of the project.

Really, I've spent the majority of my time this week reading. We're planning a beach vacation! I've been poring over guidebooks and daydreaming. Recently I've fallen asleep thinking of Hawaiian foods and beaches, which makes for some sweet dreams. 

I also just picked up The Homemade Pantry at the library and can't wait to make something from it. Everything looks so delicious and the stories Alana Chernila tells make each dish even more tantalizing. Because I'm in fall mode already, I'd especially like to make one of the comfort foods (maybe pudding or toaster pastries). 


What are you making or reading this week?

Yarn along with us over at Ginny's.


  1. Everyone is Christmas knitting and I haven't even thought about it yet! I am so behind. Or just not giving many knitted items this year. I'm not sure which! I've heard a lot of people like Homemade Pantry.

  2. Working with yarn is so rewarding...definitely stress-reliever and you have something to show for! I'm crocheting a shawl...♥

  3. I'm enjoying the Homemade Pantry book too! My kids have it full of little bits of paper marking the things they want me to make. ;) I found you through the link up, I'm sharing toddler leg warmers and my mama scarf this week. Happy knitting! (I'm your newest follower!)

  4. that book sounds really interesting. i going to have to see if our library has it. :)

  5. Have fun on Oahu; it is total paradise there. We miss it so.

    I'm reading the last book of Stieg Larsson's Millennium series. I really got into the second book.

    As for making, we're havin' salad and sammies this week as we'll have a teeny holiday this weekend. Plus I'm still working upon the snood + a charity hat.

  6. Yeah to beach vacation! Love your choice of reads this week.

  7. How fun, to be planning a vacation!

    And I agree, Homemade Pantry is a great book. Very well laid out and presented. And I've heard great things about the recipes themselves. Have fun baking and cooking. :)

  8. I am going to check out your book at the library too! seems really interesting! grey seems to be my new favorite color to knit with... though I don't have it in a stash...
