back to the yarn along

I have been missing the past few weeks.  Not because I wanted to be gone, but life happens, and sometimes it is easiest to step back from things like the blog to live the life I write about :-)  And more importantly, yesterday was our first official day of homeschool.  We are very excited to be starting this journey!  And the day went wonderfully - well until my kids decided their typical rest time wasn't needed.

I am currently working on a scarf in a lovely cream colored cotton yarn.  It is a skinny type fashion scarf, and is knitting up quite nicely if I do say so myself!  I don't have anything else lined up to knit after this, so I am hoping to get serious about my Christmas knitting and crafting and make a plan...the plan that I have been attempting to put together for the past month!

Which brings me to the book I am reading.  I am currently reading, A Greener Christmas.  It is one of my go-to books every Christmas season.  There are some wonderful recipes, as well as ornaments and gift ideas.  It also has a lot of ways to use nature in decorating and making quality gifts.  I definitely recommend it if you are looking for something that is more "green" for Christmas.

I did receive a book in the mail from Lisa at Two Bears Farm called Yes, My Darling Daughter which is a gothic type novel.  I haven't started it yet, but it looks really interesting, I am sure I will have more info about it next week!

And that is what is going on here.  What are you up to?  Joining in with Ginny and her Yarn Along.


  1. Your scarf is pretty and the book looks right up my street. I'm itching to get crafting for Christmas but I'm knitting something for myself for the cold weather first.

  2. Thank you Heather, I am ordering A Greener Christmas today! Last year I made all of my gifts along with the wrapping and wish to continue this year, it was a great Christmas.
    Have a great time homeschooling.

  3. What a pretty scarf! It looks beautiful, way to get started early!!!

  4. I love the color and the pattern of your scarf. I will have to look for A Greener Christmas...sounds like a book I just might like.


  5. Nice to see I am not the only one struggling with the "Christmas plan". I have one pair of socks done for a stocking stuffer (except I still need to weave in the ends) and one sock half-way done on the other pair. I do have my list mostly prepared...but have yet to cross anything off it.
    Good luck

  6. Oh that greener Christmas book sounds cool! I'll have to keep an eye out for it!

  7. Ooh..that scarf is lovely! We also started back to homeschool yesterday and so far so good!!
    Hoping you have a wonderful "school" year! :)
