WIP Wednesday & Yarn-Along

Happy Independence Day! Take a moment today and remember that we are indeed lucky- Thank a veteran if you know one!

Onward to the progress--

The humidity in my corner of the world means working with wool is less than desirable. However, I have been making enough progress with several projects that I will share.

My Juliana Re-Mixed 2/3 of the way done, as I finished my second section last night:

finished 2 sections, with each 'leftover' ball of yarn for comparison.

There are only a few rows left, most of which is the border. I have a full skein of yarn for the border, but don't anticipate using it all. I will probably make a matching hat or something with the remaining yarn.

I also have 3 autumnal squares finished for my mom's afghan. She made a comment the other day about not liking the amount of brown (not knowing this was a WIP gift for her) so I'm going to try to limit the brown as much as possible. I started with 7 skeins of Vanna's Choice, and will add more as needed.

The sizes still need adjusting
Yesterday, after spending the morning stitching, I sat down with Abby Johnson's Unplanned. I could not put it down. Her story is so touching, so startling, and so real. Abby is completely honest with her readers, it is amazing. I would definitely recommend reading this book.

Linking up with Tami and Ginny today!


  1. I'm jealous that you're almost done with your (2nd or 3rd?) Juliana! I'm on row 5 of the mesh section - happily those odd rows go pretty quickly. I like the squares for your mom's throw - good thing she said something!! Stay cool and happy 4th!

  2. Nice mix of squares! Aren't you lucky she commented before you got too far ahead. After all, if you're going to do all that work you want her to like it!

  3. Nice Juliana remix - Love the colours you have chosen and the shape is perfect too.
    Pretty squares they will make one gorgeous throw.
    Enjoy turning those pages.


I love knowing that you stopped by!
