Yarn Along

Joining with Ginny at Small Things for today's Yarn Along!

I'm still working on my test knit of Portage from Dandilion Girl Designs.  It's going to be a Christmas gift for my sweet sister and it suits her perfectly.  The deadline is a week from today, so I hope to have finished object photos by then!  I'm just so glad to be finished with all that honeycomb/ribbing and working on garter/stockinette so I can catch up on some Christmas movies & BBC Masterpiece Classics whilst knitting.

I also started a little chicken jumper for my sweet hen Plucky who has a bare butt.  Poor girl is at the bottom of the pecking order and refuses to stand up for herself, so I try to take extra good care of her.  

Not much in the way of reading for me as of late.  Mostly job descriptions and applications.  I do, however, plan to grab a copy of Ann Voskamp's Advent Devotional pronto to read through December.

The gorgeous plum skein in the first photo is next to be cast on.  It's destined to be another Mullspice hat for my dear friend Mary.  Since I never blogged that one, here's a photo of my first version:

I'm pretty sure I'll be giving it to my sis (the model) because, seriously... look at how well it matches those gorgeous brown eyes!? Sigh.  Maybe I'll make one for me someday :)


  1. Love all your projects! I will be looking for that vest pattern - it is lovely. And that plum coloured yarn is gorgeous! Can't wait to see it knitted up.

  2. So, is your chicken jumper based on the penguin sweater?
