Yarn Along

A post of my current read and what is cast on my needles ~ Inspired by Ginny over at {Small Things}

Handwarmers

I just had to make one more pair of these handwarmers *grin*. I just love them so much :) This time I used a combination of Mohair and wool, two strands together and they are so beautifully fuzzy, soft and warm. I really hope my cousin loves them as much as I do. They are a late Christmas present as I was hoping to bump into her during the holidays but into the mail they went yesterday morning so that she can enjoy them before spring arrives!

Story time

I was hoping to get a photo of my handwarmers with what we're reading but mother nature just wasn't cooperating with my photo shoot plans *grin*. I'm reading a copy of Waldorf Education ~ A Family Guide and the children and I are enjoying the sweet illustrations and stories of Brambly Hedge Winter Story by Jill Barklem.

The power went out again last night right after dinner so we spent a blissfully silent evening, blanketed in snowflakes and reading by candle light :)

Hugs,
Rosina

I love your candle light photo! It makes me jealous that you had a cozy evening of winter silence. Being a huge fan of all things winter, your post and pic made my day!

Elisa said...

Wow. The hand-warmers are beautiful! The color and texture just look so fantastic.

I know what you mean about TV sucking the creativity out of the kids! I have seen the same thing happening. When I let them watch a program, they are cranky, bored, and restless the rest of the day. I try to keep it for "emergencies".

Oh I love Brambley Hedge! And I have a copy of the Waldorf book you are reading, I just haven't read it yet! You really should watch Thirtysomething. It is fascinating to watch it while you are in the middle of it!

Jenna said...

Sounds quite peaceful. Love the handwarmers. Hopefully someday I will get over my fear of knitting and try to make some myself...lol.
