Yarn Along


Reading: I'm still reading Anne of Ingleside! I honestly haven't done much reading over the past week or so...

Knitting: An Orchids & Fairy Lights hat. I knitted one of these a couple of years ago and it's still my favorite hat. I wanted to make another in a prettier color and a nicer yarn. I'm using Madelinetosh (tosh vintage in the kelp colorway), and it's a much brighter teal than it looks in this picture.

    1. Ha...there are lots of cables and bobbles! But surprisingly it's pretty intuitive once you get going.

  3. It looks like your URL transition went smoothly, Kristin... please say it went smoothly!? (Says the girl who hasn't started her URL transfer yet. :D) Everything looks great and my dashboard is still picking up your blog updates, so yay! :)

    Hope you're enjoying the "Anne" series! Those covers are sure pretty - and make me realize I still need to read the lovelies. :)

    1. I hope it went smoothly...I think it did! Things look fine from my end, and nobody else has mentioned having any problems with my blog since the transition. And honestly, it was a lot easier than I expected. (Blogger made things pretty simple.) Basically just copying and pasting things into boxes. After it was finished, I was like, why did I put this off for so long? :)

  6. Love everything about it! The depth and squishiness of the pattern is so good for a hat. And that yarn is just plain gorgeous!
