What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Yarn Along





I made a sweet little pinafore for Ineke a month or so ago.  When I first made it, the dress looked so tiny and sweet.  Then I blocked it.  It got so much bigger!  I was worried at first but it has turned out to be a very good thing indeed~ this girl is growing too fast!

My current project is an offshoot of a $60.00 pillow I saw on a certain bridal registry.  It isn't the exact same pattern but I am hoping that soft, bulky and textured ivory meets pillowform will be close enough for her liking minus the pricetag.  ;-)

As for reading~ I have little stations.  If I am nursing on the couch I am reading Loving the Little Years.  If I am in bed, it's The Narnia Code.  And if I am in the middle of a cleaning project (and by the looks of the house that hasn't happened in a while!), I am listening to A Tale of Two Cities on audiobook.

You yarnies out there- still going strong or are things starting to wane now that the weather is turning spring-like?

What a coincidence - I just received a copy of Loving the Little Years today in the mail ;-) So yes, I'll be reading along with you way over here in WA. Thank you :-)

Love your little postings! Just enough to inspire and ignite the creative juices. I play with fiber all year long, no matter what the weather. I make baby hats for an office at a university who gives hats in their school colors to employees who have babies. Such fun quick projects! I love the little dress. Have been looking at them on Pinterest and wanting to make one. For me, however, it would have to be tucked away until I have someone to give it to. Looking forward to seeing your finished pillow.

Yarnies! LOL! :D Cute! :) Lovely projects, Rebecca. I have so many good books going...two I'm really loving is A City of Bells and The Book of Still Meadow...I just dipped into In the Land of Blue Burqas, which promises to be so eye-opening.

Absolutely beautiful knitting- and the model even more so.
Loved the pictures, it just drew me into your blog and sparked all kinds of beautiful creativity thoughts. :-)

The pinafore is absolutely gorgeous, of course so is the baby. The colour looks perfect on her. I am another yarn along all year type of person. Its not getting warmer here atm. The chill is beginning to descend upon us. Winter is coming.
