Yarn Along :: Three's Company

Last week in my post about my project list I mentioned that I might cast on a toy or three. I came close. I started a Soft Kitty and a turtle. Soft Kitty is for a friend and is based on this pattern by Linda. I think my vision and yarn availability are not matching up. Not sure yet what I will do, I might turn it into a fuzzy monster for Stomper or pillow or something, because it's not big enough for a kitty. If that is the case I will just cast on again for the kitty, if at first you don't succeed....

Yarn: Homespun by LionBrand

I also cast on a turtle, one of two, for a friend of my SIL. Do you recognize the yarn? The pattern is one of my favorites from Susan B Anderson. So simple and cute it doesn't take me long to make a pair. You can find my rav notes here. I made a crazy amount of these turtles a few years ago and I highly recommend the pattern.

The third thing on my needles is my beret. Gosh how I wish it was finished! There have a been a few times when I could have used it, but alas I must wait. I got a lot done while I was at a friends house last week. I probably would have finished it, but I ran out of one of my yarns. Not to worry I have more of it!

I went to the library this week and got some new books. I just couldn't get back into the Princess Academy. Maybe I'll try again in a few weeks. I got one from the series, A Series of Unfortunate Events and #8 in the Rangers Apprentice. I am really enjoying them both, the humor is so perfect in the SoUE, so spot on. Rangers Apprentice there is only a few books until the series end and I'm sad. It's been a really great journey.

Next week I hope to show you some epic finishes!

Linking up with Ginny today.


  1. What fun colours for a turtle!
    Hope you finish you hat soon, it's looking good so far.

  2. Thanks. I might keep the turtle in mind for my nephew for next Christmas. :)

  3. I love your hat and that turtle, I have a little man who is going to love that, might have to knit one up for Valentine's Day :) Thanks for the link.

  4. A turtle makes a great Christmas or Valentines gift!
