I care.
I care a lot.
It's kinda
my thing.

Before I talk about my current
knit I want to give each of you
a virtual hug and a big thank
you, the response to the need
for socks for the homeless was
all I knew it would be and it's
all because of you. You are

I am so close to being finished
with the cardigan I am knitting
for Porter, my three month old
grand son.

I will confess to not reading the
pattern right concerning inches
and centimeters and had to do
some ripping out; I thought it
was looking a little big ;)
Anyway, I just finished one sleeve
and have started the other so
all that remains after that is finding
four buttons and I think I am going
to have to accomplish that on line
since I can't find any I like in my

I am almost done reading
Ordinary Grace and while
I am enjoying the story the
writing needs some heavy
Next up on my night stand
is Tattoos on the Heart, a
book I will be reading for
book club and one I've heard
is fantastic.

Joining Ginny


  1. love the red!!! he is going to look so darn cute in that sweater :) Knitting for babies is so satisfying and FAST :)

  2. The red is simply gorgeous. I am putting Tattoos on my Heart on my list. It sounds wonderful. I think too much so called compassion and caring for others today comes with an agenda. There is just not enough real serving of others. I am so glad you had a good response to your call for socks. What a wonderful idea.

  3. Such pretty red (Scarlett? Poppy?) yarn and nice photos to boot!

  4. beautiful read. I'm sure it will look very cute as a baby sweater!

  5. I love the sweater and the stunning colour, such a great knit and stunning photography.

  6. Lovely photos and what a cute cardigan. I think a few playful mis-matched buttons would do very nicely.

  7. Tattoos on the Heart sounds like one I need to add to my list. Porter's sweater looks so good! I'm so glad you got a good response to your need for socks <3

  8. LOVE LOVE LOVE the red cardigan! I can't wait to see Porter in it!

  9. What a cute red knit! I'm looking up that book!

  10. I am in love with your yarn basket! And the texture of the cardigan is so so gorgeous! I would love one for myself!

  11. He will look so handsome in that gorgeous red sweater. I really like the story, Ordinary Grace. I don't remember so much of the editing and I usually don't unless it is glaringly obvious (like in 50 shade of grey- that was horrible).

  12. The red is so beautiful. What a lucky little grandbaby! Tattoos...sounds very good. :)

  13. I care a lot too and sometimes I think it's the best thing about me and sometimes I think it might be one of the worst! :) Your basket is so pretty and I really love the red sweater. It's coming along beautifully so far. I haven't heard of the book but I'm going to look it up right now. Hope you're having a good week, Tracey.

  14. ooooh...i actually felt that hug come through my screen !!! your red cardigan knit is stunning (your grandson is going to look so handsome in it.) I will have to look for your looks interesting.

  15. Beautiful pictures as always! I have to confess it is encouraging to me when I hear of knitters who I see as so much more advanced than me having to rip things out now and then :) Although I am sorry for that for your sake!

  16. That is such a sweet little cardigan and I love the fact that you chose the vibrant red instead of a typical boy color. Can't wait for Porter to model it for us.

  17. That sweater is so darn cute and will be amazing on your grandson!

  18. That bright red yarn is such a nice spot of color Tracey! I'm curious to hear more about that book you just started reading. :)

    P.S. Happy Birthday to you too! <3

  19. Oh goodness that red is such a great colour. I hope we get to see a photo of Porter wearing it :)

  20. I love the cinnamon-y perfect for fall...fall...already...really...???

    ~Have a lovely day!

  21. It is a sweet little cardigan Tracey. I really like the pattern on the arms.

  22. Such a gorgeous sweater and in a stunning colour.

  23. That is one, snazzy red for Porter! I love red on boys. I always like seeing bark. it's so neat how it's textured and how when trees have it like shingles layered upon one another.
