Yarn Along


I’m plugging away at my Harvest Cardigan whilst reading up on Canada’s shameful lack of history. I’ll be finished just as the weather warms up and the wearing of it will have to wait until the fall!

Linking up today with Ginny for her weekly Yarn Along. Yes, knitting and reading are two of my favourite things too.

Quick Change Trousers


I managed to fit in a bit of sewing and whipped up a couple of scrappy quick change trousers for Nell. The versatile pattern comes from the AMH Handmade Beginnings book. A lack of fabric required me to make only the 6 month and the nine month size, but it was a great way to use up some of those pesky scraps that seem to hang around. I’m trying to be good and sew only from my stash. This big girl is already 18 pounds, and so will not be wearing the 6 month size pants for very long!
