Yarn Along

Follow Ginny at Small Things where she shares her current reads and yarn projects.

This week my Mother received the hat and booties that I made for her friend expecting a baby boy (and I received my first payment via SwansNest on etsy).

One more go:
This week I feel like giving up on the baby legs for awhile. This is not like me. I usually don’t give up on projects. I usually find a way to push through and make things happen but (errr) it’s just not happening. I need some inspiration. So I’m going to go on a hike after our Treetrunk boy (brother older) lets out of school and hope to find some inspiration in nature.

And how could I not in the Pacific Northwest on the cusp of Spring?

This week I checked out some graphic novels from the public library (our second home).

I love Sara Varon! I fell in love with her work many years ago with how easily I can relate to her humor and how she gives objects and other things human like lives is so interesting to me.

Sara Varon's Bake Sale

I read her most current book Bake Sale. I love it! I don’t want to give away too much but it’s about an Aubergine and a Cupcake and their daily to-dos. The story follows their blossoming friendship. There’s some loss and a lot of learning about nurturing a friendship and treatment of others. Simple humanity.

Have a great Yarn Along everyone!

Work In Progress: a pair of baby leg warmers named Sea Foam Progression Inspired.
I’ve been inspired by the Northwest coastal range my entire life and fell in love with sea foam as a toddler. The leg warmers are an artists interpretation of the progression of colours from the sea to the land with the magical delight that sea foam has taken in my life.
