Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Hats, Soakers, and Birdie's Lighthouse {Yarn Along}

Hats, Soakers, and Birdie's Lighthouse {Yarn Along}

It seems like forever that I have linked up to Ginny's Yarn Along.  If you like knitting and reading, then you'll want to participate.

Right now, I'm knitting a soaker (diaper cover) for my daughter using the Curly Purly pattern.  Sorry, I did not take any pictures yet, but I'm only on Row 3.  So, there's not much to show yet.  I'm also reading Birdie's Lighthouse by Deborah Hopkinson to my daughter; though we just finished page 1.  I like reading to my daughter, but don't want to memorize whole books (such as Brown bear, brown bear: What do you see? Yes, I have that memorized word for word.), so I also read things that aren't for babies.

I FINALLY finished this hat.  I'll be giving it to my brother as a late Christmas present.  :)  I love the how the yarn just self striped.  Here are a few pictures of the completed item.

Mummy, I LIKE this.  There's
blue and brown and...
Can you make
me one?
Well, if I can't keep it, I'll at least
try it on.

  1. I really like the colours in your hat!
    Can I ever relate to the books that become memorized... I have a whole list now that I think I could recite off the top of my head :-)

  2. Self-striping yarn...love it! Isn't it nice to finish up a project? Such a good feeling. :) Blessings, ~Lisa

  4. Never purchase the cheapest one, it is usually
    full of unhealthy chemical compounds. That beautiful tan is deadly in many ways,
    especially for your skin pores. Since each individual case history is unique, each case requires a different approach.

  6. Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to produce a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole
    lot and don't seem to get anything done.|
