Yarn Along


I am still knitting hats, although a little more slowly this week. You see the garden was calling this week. With a gorgeous long weekend, which felt like summer, I had no choice but to get outside, get my hands a little dirty and have some fun in the garden. It meant my knitting needles saw very little of me. I did make a little progress on my nephew’s hat and am hoping to have it finished up by next week.
The reading continues for my doula training. And of course the Coyote’s Guide to Connecting with Nature, which almost feels like it has become a part of me, is still being read and devoured every chance I get.
What are you knitting and reading this week?

  1. My knitting has slowed too due to the weather. There is just so much to accomplish outdoors.
    Have a great yarn along day.

  2. Love the color. I find it hard to knit this time of year with summer around the corner!

  3. Being outside is more important than knitting inside. Unless you can knit outside then you have the best of both worlds :) Great hat!!

  4. I thought my knitting would have picked up, but it hasn't. I've been doing some reading, but mostly I've been vegging. I did sit out on my back porch for a bit yesterday. It was nice to be out.

    1. I think you are entitled to a little vegging Melissa, hope you heal quickly.

  5. Ah yes, the song of the garden. And the song of the woods. Definitely competing with my crafting time as well...

  6. Being outdoors is oh-so tempting at this time of year, isn't it? I like to work on my vegetable patch until I'm in need of a sit down, then I pick up my knitting!

    1. It is, and it wins out every time. Sounds like the perfect way to enjoy both worlds.

  8. Doula training? I bet that's a lot of work, a lot of studying and lots of steady nerves. Wow, go you!

    1. Thanks! Time in the soil is exactly what my soul needs.

      Doula training is through Birth Arts. Totally amazing program which speaks to me and everything I believe about birth.
