{Yarn Along}

Joining in with Ginny today for her weekly Yarn Along {where reading and yarn are at one with the universe.  As it should be!}  

Really it's about all I've been doing for the last few days, since these pesky germs have decided to invade my body with a vengeance. 

It probably wouldn't have gotten this bad had I listened to my body last week when it was telling me to slow down.  I was in denial.  There were meals to cook, laundry to wash, rocks to be identified, woods to be hiked through, orders to be sent.  You know normal life stuff with a family and small business. 

It really isn't all that bad though, slowing down a bit; knitting and reading.  Knitting always makes everything better, especially with hand dyed merino.  I took it out of the shop and decided to use it myself!  I'm working on a bib design that I'm going to give to our favorite coffee shop waitress.  She's the most adorable looking pregnant woman I've ever met and is about to give birth at any moment!! 

As for the reading, the boys and I have been reading from my mom's childhood book, Let's Read A Story.  It's an anthology of children's stories, including a short story, "Willie's Pockets" by Margaret Wise Brown.

What are you knitting and reading this week?


  1. A knitted baby bib. What a darling idea!

  2. Why is it that we mamas have to get sick in order to find a little time to knit or read?! :) Hope you're feeling better soon; the yarn is beautiful!

  3. So pretty! Sorry you're feeling so bad. As mamas we never want to take the time to take care of ourselves. But if we don't we end up not being able to take care of anyone. Feel better soon!

  4. I know it's hard, but you have to listen when your body is telling you to rest! (I'm really bad about ignoring the signs, too!) Glad you have a comforting project to work on, and hope you feel better soon!

  5. Thank you so much for all your well wishes. Mike took his turn at cooking dinner last night so I have been able to just lay around. It's surprisingly hard to just lay here and do nothing while everyone around me is busy going about their daily routine. I feel a bit of the mom guilt... but the more I rest, the sooner I'll be well:)

  6. Thanks a great idea and a great yarn to use!
