One Wednesday Closer

Getting closer to the end of my student teaching! Teaching the 3 branches of government and Renaissance & Reformation for the next few weeks, cut in half by Spring Break. Woo! Going to read some Shakespeare with my World History kiddos-- wish me luck!! :)

Working on the Pineapples for Everyone CAL, in Caron Simply Soft Paints. I just finished up the first skein, and am starting on the second. Hoping the yarn will be enough. Love the yarn, might be too busy for the pattern, but feels so soft!!

I shared another project earlier this week, a slouch hat in Chroma & Bare (KnitPicks), and have since started to make a pair of fingerless mitts to match.

This is closer to accurate color. 

I'm still trying to keep up on the Cold Sheep Along, as it runs through April. So far, I've crocheted almost 1500 yards! (My monthly best so far this year is 2070 yards, and I'm hoping to surpass that this month.)

(Anyone in the Midwest sick of the snow yet?!)

Head over to Tami's & Ginny's to check out more progress & happy yarn-y things!


  1. What lovely crochet and such great colours.
    I'm not in the midwest but definitely sick of the snow (french alps!).

  2. The pineapples for everyone shawl looks gorgeous! It's going to be nice to wrap something so soft and warm around your shoulders... especially since spring seems to be taking its time arriving.

  3. That shall is beautiful and I like how you matched your blouse with the colors in your hat to show it off!

  4. I think your Pineapples for Everyone Shawl looks great, definitely not too busy! I love the hat, too.


I love knowing that you stopped by!
