Yarn along

Joining Ginny at Small Things for another round of Yarn along.
I just finished knitting this little gnome, inspired by lasts weeks yarn along in fact. I found the simple pattern on Plain and joyful living, it took about an hour to complete, and is so sweet.
Still haven't gotten into a book just for me, but thought I would share my love of these simple little animal stories by Thornton W Burgees, that we are reading every night. The children absolutely adore these sweet little animal stories, with their gentle lessons about nature, life lessons and the personality of each animal. The only thing that bothers me a bit about these, is the pictures which has the animals dressed and on two legs, however the pictures are few and I still highly recommend them...
~wishing you a lovely day~


  1. Your gnome came out wonderfully. I love the yarn you chose. We are big fans of Thornton W. Burgees as well. Such wonderful sweet stories.

    Blessings, Elizabeth
