~ 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? Linking with Ginny.
Potholders in my kitchen receive
a daily workout. No frilly or thin
potholders are allowed. I need
something that can take lifting a
#12 iron skillet with lid out of a hot
oven and know that I won't get burned.
After finding out [ the hard way] that
my favorite potholders had a few
weakspots I decided to double knit
a few new ones and learn a new
technique in the process.
Double knitting isn't hard, but I
still need to practice getting
the tension correct and to remember
which yarn to knit and which to purl.
I have been reading The Secret
Holocaust Diaries by Nonna Bannister.
It is a free Kindle download and although
the subject is sad, the book is a good one.
I am finding it to be an informative
story concerning what happened to
Russian citizens during such a horrific
time in history. I plan on having my thirteen
year old read it in a few years along with
The Diary of Anne Frank and The Hiding Place.
