It been a while since I last did a yarn along post. The most recent one I have is from March. The simple explanation for the lack of such posts is that I didn’t have a knitting project for the month of April or May. 

That’s the time of year when I buckle down and determinedly finish my school courses. It’s also the time of year when I help out with the planning and planting of the garden.

Now that it’s June, and most of my school courses are done, and the garden is in autopilot mode for the most part, I started a knitting project.

The knitting project I am currently working on is a sweet little baby sweater. The pattern is called Wee Watson by Taiga Hillard Designs.  

The Wee Watson is a baby sweater knit from the top down. It has four little button holes on the right shoulder, and a cable pattern all down the front. I am knitting it in the size 6-12 months.

One of the books I am reading this month is Bayberry Island: An Adventure About Friendship and the Journey Home  by Henry Cole. It is the sequel to Brambleheart, which I highly recommend. You can read my thoughts on it here.

Brambleheart was a really excellent book, and Bayberry Island is proving to be just as good.

I don’t want to tell you too much about Bayberry Island in case you haven’t read Brambleheart yet. If that’s the case I suggest you read it with your kids. It would make an excellent read aloud.

The story of Twig and his baby dragon continues, as he sails with his friends across the ocean in search of a special place.

I really do hope that I can keep up the knitting momentum throughout the rest of the year. Last year I got a lot of knitting done during the summer because I was volunteering at Heritage Park.

Heritage Park is a historical village here in our city. So, I just sat in one of the building wearing period clothing, and knitting a variety of projects. It was tremendous fun!
