YARN ALONG

Knitting is a boon for
those of us who are
easily bored. I take
my knitting everywhere
to take the edge off of
moments that would
otherwise drive me stark
raving mad.
~ Stephanie Pearl-McPhee





A quick and easy knit
that was perfect to do
while watching the
London Olympics.

Reading  another great
book from Stephanie
Pearl-McPhee because
she makes me laugh out
loud.

Joining with Ginny

  7. Wonderful hat and model (although he doesn't look tremendously excited to model mom's hat). My husband always knows when I laugh out loud that I am probably reading the YH's blog or one of her books.

  12. Oh, Tracey. The straight-on picture of your lovely boy in the hat? The statue behind him makes it look like the hat has big cat/anime ears. And now I feel absolutely compelled to knit such a hat. Inspiration from all places, yes? (:

    When I laugh out loud at a book, my husband assumes that I'm ready the Pink Carnation series (though he calls it the pink flamingo).
