Yarn Along: Inklings...




A few weeks ago, I received a surprise package in the mail (which I love!).  Inside was a copy of the book Inklings.  I instantly knew who had sent it!  Father John's family has been close with Father Michael, Auntie Janet, and their daughter for years (Father Michael was Father John's godfather!) and I recently connected with Auntie Janet on Facebook.  She and I share the same taste in books and movies and she not only recommended this book series to me, she sent me the first one!  I am so touched!  I am several chapters in and I really like it!

I finally cast on for Sugar Plum's hat and cowl set and have found it to be a quick knit.  You see, I knit up the beret in the child's size and we found that it was much too big!  I ripped it out and am now knitting the toddler size.  Hopefully, it will be perfect for my little girl's head and in a few days, she will be toasty warm!

I hate it when the sizing isn't right! My petite kids always need a size down from the recommended one for their age but I stress that it will be too small.
That book looks fun, what a special gift!
