Yarn Along

I've been staying so super busy in my Etsy shop. I haven't knitted anything for me or mine in some time and have been thinking how in the world will I get anything made for Christmas? I am being realistic, admitting that I will have to buy most of the gifts this year. But I really do want to have at least one handmade (by me) for each of my girls this year. Which brings me to this week's Yarn Along. Yes, I have orders in the wait a mile long, but, I think I will take the girls' projects just one row at a time, fitting in the extra knitting where ever and when ever I can. Seriously, I knit knit the first few rows of this during our walk this morning.
So, the book is Seven Times the Sun. The pattern, Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap. And the yarn is from Cherry Tree Hill.

What are you knitting and reading this week?

I have the same feelings about Christmas, how will I get it all done? I really should begin my homemade Christmas for 9 children on December 26th of 2010 for Christmas of 2011! I love the yarn you've chosen and I'm a sucker for charming names, that yarn has a great name too!

That hat is SO cute. I tried to make it last year and mine turned out way too small--can't wait to see yours.

What a beautiful combination of yarn and book..the colors!

I'm also having some "making" anxiety about the holidays but isn't that what people expect from a knitter? that their gifts may be only half-finished.... :)

That books sounds really interesting. And the cover goes so well with that beautiful yarn. I'm also wondering how I can fit in something handmade for my boys. I think I can do it but I think I'll be staying up late a few nights as we get closer to the holidays.
