yarning along

Green is still the colour for my Master S and he chose this yarn himself for his new beanie.  I was amazed how the type and colour of yarn really affects my thrill of knitting.  I prefer to only use natual fibres, this is a New Zealand 100% wool - but the colour got to me while knitting.  

However seeing these pictures of my beautiful boy, it really looks delightful on him!

The sun has been shining here and I have been out in the garden; gathering ideas and thinking how I can make this home more homely.  I really don't know how long we will be here, but while we are here - I feel the need to create and make it a home.

I have a bunting project up my sleeve and will blog about that tomorrow!  It is very exciting and taking me a bit of courage to get started.

I have come back to this book from this blog.  It is not an easy read, but most certainly a blessing and I am learning lots!

I am loving Yarn Along and following Ginny's blog.  I am in need of another book to read... any recommendations?  I don't like anything sinister or spooky or violent though - something nice... suggestions welcome!

Much Love Rach xo

PS...  I am hoping to host another Squiggly Sunday post - please let me know if you would like to be a guest blogger!


  1. I really enjoy a change of scenery now and again. I love to knit small projects using crazy colored yarn! Interspersed of course between 'normal' colors... :)

    Blessings, Debbie

  2. It's funny you should mention that about color. The knitting projects I enjoy most are ones using my favorite colors. I find that if I cast on something that is so-so in the color realm for me, the project drags on and on. The hat looks great. Glad that he liked it.

  3. I love the color of yarn....and the hat looks great on your son!
