Yarn Along: Crochet Ruffly Vest

Joining Ginny over at Small Things for the regular Wednesday Yarn Along!
Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? ~ Ginny Sheller from Small Things

With so much of my focus on preparing for the arrival of my babies, I have tried to be careful to make sure that Mayumi is not neglected. Since I've finished the two vests and am almost done with one pair of pants, I figured it was only fair to start on something for my daughter. I've been promising her a sweater of some sort for this fall and after a little searching on Ravelry, she decided she liked this crochet vest: the Delia sweater tunic by Anji Beane. I haven't crocheted something in a while, so this is a nice departure for me. The yarn is Dream Classy superwash merino in Lunar Zazzle and was found in the 50% off bin at KnitWit yarn shop in Portland, Maine. Like most of my knitting/crochet projects, it has traveled with me all over the place, where I can finish a row here and there while at church, the park, the beach, the Metro, the car... and hopefully it will all come together before she starts "school" in a few weeks.

While my main reading is STILL McCullough's The Greater Journey, I have also been dabbling in Four Season Harvest by Eliot Coleman in preparation for my fall plantings. Between yarn work, being pregnant, and gardening, there seems to be a lot of creating going on around here! Wonderful!

I know how you feel - many things are being "born" around here too. A house renovation, abundant vegetable patch, handknits, the new school term, an imminent baby... Good but sometimes overwhelming! That blue colour is beautiful and looks squidgy soft. Yum.

I love that colour! You are doing so much creating it's amazing. I'm sure your daughter appreciates being asked what sweater she wanted too. :)
