Yarn Along {October 5th}

{Joining Ginny today over at Small Things}

Last week I mentioned that I was going to knit another cowl using the same little lace pattern but using a plain yarn. Using 5mm needles and double knit yarn produced a lovely open look.

I have also started on a slouch hat to team up with the cowl. I love the fancy rib work that the pattern gives...

Last week my Charlotte Mason Series arrived. I am busy reading a rather interesting chapter in Vol 5 about Young Maidens at Home!

I think that I will set Miss Mason aside tonight and opt for a good 'Who Dunnit!'

Thanks for visiting fellow yarnies, now I'm off to visit some of your lovely Yarn Along entries to get a little more inspiration ;o)


  1. that looks really nice, I like simple colours!
    Those charlotte mason books looke interesting! Is it a whole series?

  2. Love the cowl! I am making them for gifts this year and love their simplicity.

  3. That slouch hat pattern looks wonderful. Do you have a name or link to it? I really need to get a set of Charlotte Mason's books! I've read bits and pieces of her volumes, but it would be nice to read them all.

  4. lovely knitting. i'd like to make a hat like that also, i do like that ribbing, so pretty.

  5. That is indeed some pretty fancy ribbing, it looks wonderful!!

  6. I'm liking the slouch hat, Helen would love something similar for Christmas. And your lacework looks so pretty in white.

  7. I love the brim on the hat you're knitting. It's very elegant looking.

  8. the hat and cowl set will looks so great! love it.



Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate each and every one left for me.
