Yarn Along

Veronica's yellow sweater Pink baby sweater

Per Ree's request I've been working on a yellow sweater & a pink sweater for her baby sister. I finished the yellow one this past weekend. It is so tiny! The pink one should be finished soon. I was working along on it then ended up buying all the fabric (almost) I need to work on Ree's big girl quilt. Now I've been cutting it out and getting ready to start sewing that.

I had been having horrible insomnia at night so that's when I got all my reading time in. I just finished Wintering a novel of Sylvia Plath. I found it fascinating to read about the last few years of her life. Up next is The Bell Jar. Except that something changed and I've had no problem falling asleep at night the past few nights. So we'll see how much reading I get done now!

  1. It really is amazing how tiny baby clothes are isn't it? The sweaters look so sweet.

    Sylvia was quite the troubled soul. I haven't read Wintering so will have to add that to my list.

    I have a feeling you will be in for some sleepless nights again soon over the next couple of months.

  3. I was up around 3:30a.m. for no reason, but I do not get out of bed, I just keep my eyes closed and wait for sleep. I think I fell asleep around 5??? Crazy! Love the sweaters and they are tiny, but then the baby will be a wee one :)

  4. Insomnia. Ugh. Bane of my existence.

    Love the cute sweaters. I, too, am knitting my 2nd baby sweater in a row--not for me, though!!

  6. Those sweaters are so tiny. No wonder they knit up fast! It's hard for me to believe that C wore preemie clothes for the first 3 or 4 months of her life. I look at them now and can't believe how small they really are.
