In Which the Square Has Been Turned and I Wind a Little Yarn

IMG_2846

IMG_2847I finished the Turn A Square.  I like it.  It’s cute.  I had seen a finished version in my local yarn shop and it seemed huge, so I actually left out the increases and it worked out well.  I like the square top.

This past Saturday, I wound the unwound skeins of my teeny-tiny stash.  I’m glad my mom has a yarn swift.  It really turns out a nice ball of yarn.  I have two skeins of lovely Koigu that I’m going to use for my next project; a pair of Turkish Bed Socks.  This pattern is a few years old, but I have wanted try knitting them for a while.

The ducklings and I tried our hands at using modeling clay yesterday.  We enjoyed the medium very much, but as our pieces dry they seem to be breaking very easily.  That is a little disappointing. I am getting more and more use out of Learning about the World through Modeling by Arthur Auer.  I’m glad I have it as a reference.

Thanks for dropping by the pond today!  I look forward to seeing what other projects abound.
