Yarn Along!

My very first Yarn Along with Ginny!

I've just started reading "A perfectly kept house is the sign of a misspent life" which I am living out these house is just being "maintained": dishes cleaned, laundry washed (although not always put away as fast as it should be) and living room picked up at the end of the day. Don't mind the dust bunnies in the corner please! :-)

But the time that would have been spent cleaning and organizing is instead spent playing with the baby; baking, drinking tea, keeping warm and knitting. Hence the almost finished sock up in that picture! I think I may actually get a pair of socks finished in a month rather then the year it usually takes! (Of course that's only the first sock so we'll see how long the second sock takes; especially as I have about three other projects also going!)

The pattern is the Horcrux pattern (Ravelry link) and it knits up quite fast and is easy!


  1. Wow! I'm very impressed with that sock. I have yet to try socks, but it's on my list of projects. Thanks for the link to pattern!

  2. Love up on that little one, they really do grow wa-a-a-ay to fast! Good job on that sock, never tried socks yet...

  3. I need to start a pair of socks soon for my husband. Yours look great.

  4. OH the book sounds right up my alley. Your sock looks fabulous. I have just cast on a sock as well, but am not as far along.

  5. I have one and 2/3's socks knit in that exact yarn!! It looks so pretty, maybe I can be persuaded to finish the second sock if someone else does too ;-) And we're mostly in maintenance mode here on a weekly basis! Books sounds good.
