Yarn Along

I started my temperature scarf on January 1. We have a cold snap going on...well, I think actually its probably seasonable temperatures and we are not used to it! I have the first little bit done. I am using a natural color to start and to designate the months.

Now that the Christmas knitting is done I have gone back to my pioneer girl shawl. I am still in the easy part of just increasing on the ends with garter stitch in the middle so its "growing" pretty well! I just finished A Wilder Rose which is a novel based on the life of Rose Wilder Lane. It was really interesting and I enjoyed it. Now I am back to reading the series about Beatrix Potter. I am sensing a theme here!

Maddie and I just got back from the library. She requested a large pile of books for research on her 4H Public Presentation Project for March. Our future ranger has picked a subject near and dear to her heart....John Muir and the National Parks. I believe she is going to try and work in a part about how to behave in a National in come and look and enjoy then leave it for someone else to do the same.

Joining Ginny for the Yarn Along today.


  1. Your scarf is very pretty and I am very intrigued with the pattern so will be looking it up. We are experiencing a cold snap too and I am thrilled!
    I love Beatrix Potter, have you seen the movie about her? It was quite good.

  2. I have a friend who recently finished her temperature scarf. Such a great idea. I have mine on the list for next year. It's been quite cold here too - warming back up to the 40's today which will be nice.

  3. what a neat idea...temperature scarf! I like it. very clever

  4. What a fantastic idea for a scarf!! It's very pretty as is the shawl :-)
