Yarn Along


Welcome to another yarn along, many thanks to Ginny of Small Things for making it all possible. This week I finished knitting the Principessa Dress using this yarn. I really enjoyed this pattern & my notes can be found here. I am also finishing up the book Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. Quite an interesting & enjoyable read.  Wishing you all a wonderful day!

That is such a sweet dress - and I think it must be quite lovely to knit with wool you've spun yourself!
I enjoyed Jonathan Strange a few years ago!

I meant to post more about knitting with beads today but forgot. It involves the tiniest crochet hook I've ever seen!
