Yarn Along - Yarrow

Happy yarn along day! We are skulking around here, trying to stay in the shade as much as possible, parched, only venturing out to water the wilted plants. I am loathe to even turn on a light in the house so we bumble around in the dark. We do our daily walk after sundown each night. Pray for rain.

I've been sewing while indoors, and getting good things done with it! Thanks to Joanna, The Nome Knitter, I've started making my own DPN cozies using her blog tutorial. Genius, I tell you, and I'm feeling a bit sheepish for pouring over her IG photos of the process and making my own failed attempt before it occurred to me to google to see if there was a tutorial.

So I've cast on another pair of socks to match my sweet cozy. It's the little things in life that keep the days going, no? I'm not sure what pattern to use but I think it is a stripy yarn (Deboarh Norville Serenity Sock in Harlequin) so I may stay basic. I'm waiting for my KAM snap pliers to be delivered, today I hope, and then my cozy and I will be in top working order.

Lastly, I am reading Gap Creek by Robert Morgan. I posted it on IG and the people who have read it said they really enjoyed it. The book starts fast, but now I've settled in to see where it may be headed next.

What about you? What are you making and reading? Show and tell with Ginny and the others or comment below.


  1. some cute things! so many projects!!! IG sure is fun! :) have a great day!

  2. Those DPN cozies are adorable. I really need to learn how to sew. Stay cool!

  3. oh I feel you.....we hide from the sun and wish for rain or some relief. Its been near 100 here and no rain...8 inches under for the year so far. I fear a drought is coming. *sigh* Hoping we both get relief! Love the dpn cozies. I sure need some of those!

  4. Your cozy is adorable! I'm traveling and the last few days this week have been killer on the humidity! So hot! It's really hard to go out and explore when it's that hot!
