Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs.  I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well.

I think last week I assured you this blanket would be finished and blocking.  As you can see that has  not happened.  I have made progress and it will for sure it will be finished next week, but a little thing happened that kept me away from the needles. That space above.... I have spent a lot of time there over the past week.

I have become a sponsor on this blog and Ginny put together a little giveaway this past Saturday.  Friends, the response was tremendous!  I cannot thank you enough for the purchases and comments.  I have still not caught up, but I'm not too far behind.  This little business is really a gift.  It is the gift of Elizabeth to all of us.  As the song says, I have " set my sights on the higher gifts. On the things that come from your Maker in heaven." This is an offering.

The 15% coupon code for the giveaway is still active until May 31st.  Code is SMALLTHINGS24.  If you don't see something you like, email me and I will work to create something for you.

The Little Oratory is still on my bedside table.  I have not read much this past week, but that book is now autographed.  See Monday's post for that story!

Linking up with Ginny today!


  1. That yarn color and pattern are gorgeous! So pretty!

  2. We all have great intentions, but life gets in the way. Tomorrow is another day! So glad your little business is doing so well. It warms my heart to hear things like that.

  3. Haha! Now I see it. Looking forward to it being mine. ;-)

  4. you will get that blanket done soonish :) I thought it was a new one cast on!! Have fun sewing away and so happy that you had a great response.

  5. That knitting is just beautiful!

  6. What yarn is that? It looks so perfect for a blanket to snuggle up with!

    1. Danna, I always use Knit Picks Comfy for my blankets. It washes and dries so beautifully . The Pima cotton is divine to knit with. All of my grandchildren and many others who have been gifted have blankets from this.

  7. Such a conundrum, sewing or knitting. So glad you have had such great success with your bags.

  8. Oh that knitted edge is so pretty! I love the scallops and the colour. So good that your giveaway was such a success!

  9. Just catching up with my feed reader...I'm so glad your giveaway at Ginny's went so well! Your bags are so wonderful; it's no wonder so many people want one! xo
