Yarn Along: 14th September

This week as I join Ginny and the other Yarn Along girls. I really have only a small contribution to share.

I have been enjoying knitting these slippers from: Moonbeams and Applesauce: Rainbow Wool Elf Slipper Tutorial. 
Even though I have not made as much progress as I wanted they are super easy to knit. I love that I can pick them up and down at will as I do other things with the children, they don't require lots of thought and I am enjoying the texture of the wool.
My other poor little  gnomes are still awaiting completion in my work basket and I am sure feel quite neglected. Mossy Atlas is anxious for their company but is waiting patiently.

I have been using bamboo needles for my projects lately and LOVE the feel and texture as I knit with them. Has anyone else had this same experience with bamboo needles.

My reading this week is very sporadic. Picking up bits and pieces but I am loving the small bits and pieces from  The Rhythm of Family: Discovering a Sense of Wonder through the Seasons.

My knitting and reading are hampered by my sewing of Autumn's  Deb dress still but I am making slow but steady progress on it.

Hoping to stop by and see many of your projects this week!!


Blessings to you and your homes,

I also love bamboo needles, I have heard some negative things about them but all my experiences have been good!

I tried bamboo needles fairly early on when I started knitting (after hating metal ones) and love the way they feel warm in my hands. The only issue I ever have is that the tips tend to be quite blunt, which can be frustrating.

Cute slippers. I like the earth tones. I like bamboo needles alright, but I love the Harmony wood needles at KnitPicks.com so they are my go-to needles. It seems like several of us are still reading Rhythm of Family. :)

I love our bamboo needles too, they feel warmer and softer to me. Your slippers look beautiful! I can't wait till you finish them. I'm making a pair for me this winter, although I think I may make them brown so I look a little more grown-up in my elf slippers: ) Have a blessed week.

I used to use bamboo too, but they make me too slow. So I can't stand them anymore, lol.

I can't wait to see the finished dress Gae!
