yarn along

Four balls of Noro was enough to create this Baby Surprise Jacket (which ended up larger than I'd expected...about a one-year size), and the "Pebble" vest which might fit our new baby later this winter.

I've been reading "Simple Abundance" every morning, and "The Prisoner of Azkaban" (again) before I fall asleep. I find that when I'm into later pregnancy, I have to read books I've read before, or at least pick books that are on the light side. I've finished Terry Pratchett's "The Wee Free Men" and "A Hat Full of Sky" (HIGHLY recommended!) and am on the lookout for more light reading...we're due to go to the library today so I'll see what our visit brings.

  2. Beautiful knitting! Noro yarns are very good for self striping aren't they?
    I sometimes feel the need to read something familiar, too.

  6. It is amazing to me how small those little outfits are! It's hard for me to imagine how tiny babies are when they come (especially now that I'm running after a toddler.).

  8. Both garments are very pretty in those colours. I like the contours the yarn creates on the jacket - very nice.
    Enjoy the frivolous reading.
