Yarn Along


Another baby will be wearing a Milo this fall. Yup, that means I cast another one off this weekend. Have I mentioned how much I love these little Milos.

I stopped in at the yarn shop yesterday to pick up some yarn for Milo number five, hoping to cast it on later tonight or tomorrow. And I have decided there will be a sixth Milo, after knitting them up, I think my little man needs one too. It will be a gift under the Christmas tree for him.

On the reading front, the doula reading has been taking up most of my time, but I have read a few chapters of The Small Scale Poultry Flock, which I started last week. I am also reading Christopherus Homeschool Resources – Kindergarten with Your Three to Six Year Old. So far I like it, no big lesson plans, just some simple ideas for solidifying the rhythms in the home and offering suggestions for what a Waldorf kindergarten might look like at home.

What are you knitting and reading this week?

  1. I am so impressed with the number of vests you knit. My best friend just had a new baby, and I'm thinking I might need to cast on one of these!

    1. Thank you. The first two were merinos, the second were merino blends. I am going back to the merino for the next two.

    1. Thanks Kate. It is a great little resource, just the right amount of information without going overboard, we are after all talking about four year olds.

  7. Your giving heart is so sweet! I admire your sixth one in the queue!!! Lovely vest and there is something very therapeutic knitting the same pattern over and over with different fibers or colors!!

    1. Awe, thank you. I am excited to knit one for Reece, it will take a little longer with the bigger size, but that is okay. I agree, knitting the same pattern in very therapeutic, although after number six I am looking forward to something else.

  9. You are the Milo Queen! I have had that on my to-knit list for awhile now....and I think maybe you inspired me to knit some up for the holidays as well. Although I think a size 6 will probably take a while.....
