YARN ALONG

Let yourself be silently drawn by the
stronger pull of what you really love.

~Rumi













I finished the hat I was knitting
last week and today will send
it on it's way to bless another soul.

I do have some Christmas knitting
being worked on, but since it's a
secret I thought I would show you
the progress I have made on my
socks. It won't be long before it's
time to make the heels, you know,
the really fun part, at least it is for
me.

It's no secret that I love quotes and
poetry so reading Rumi is right up
my alley. It helps that the pages in
this book are short since I keep falling
asleep almost as soon as my head
hits the pillow, sigh.

  1. Love your hat Tracey. I knit one up too, it was sent off yesterday. Your socks look great! Might have to check out your book, Rumi always has something good to say :)

    Have a wonderful day.

  6. That hat is gorgeous! I love that cream colored yarn, and the buttons :-) I am looking for a couple buttons for a hat I knit several weeks ago and haven't found what I am looking for yet...or maybe I just like too many different buttons! Beautiful pictures as always!

  9. My favourite part of knitting socks is the heel as well. Love the quote you have up today! (I may just put it up on the chalkboard for a certain teenager that is making some post-secondary decisions right now ;)

  12. love the hat you knit up, so pretty and the buttons are a cute detail. I am wrapping up the knitting this next week for the gift giving (I think). I might change my mind and knit for more people....

  13. That is such a cute hat! The sad thing is that you'll finish your socks before I finish mine. Today's quote is great...I think I'm going to use it!

  20. What an interesting flower. It almost looks like an exotic orchid. I like that hat! It's like a beehive and remind me of Pooh. That sock yarn is so fun.
