~ 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.
I have come to the conclusion
that I am a sock addict! I want
to knit everyone I know a pair!
I cast on a pair of long stockings
for the wee one since she
likes to sleep in socks and with
cooler weather coming [my
fingers are crossed], I thought
these would be perfect. I am
using Loops & Threads Sock Yarn
in color Balloons. I think it
is a great color for a little
girl. Since knitting two socks
on dpn's side by side, I have
learned that I really prefer to knit
with wood needles. I only have one
set of size 2 in wood so I cast
on the second sock using metal
needles and I am finding
they hurt my hands when
I use them. I guess this means
I need to make another trip
to the city to purchase more
wood needles! ;)
With the holidays right around
the corner, I picked up a book
I read every year, Hundred Dollar Holiday.
This is a book that helps
keep me grounded when I am
bombarded with so much
commercialism and greed every time
I go into a store. I was at the
market last week and was
serenaded by Christmas music
the whole time I shopped...
unbelievable! We haven't
even had Thanksgiving yet.
I want to enjoy and spend time
with the people I love, not worry
about buying stuff that none of
us needs. OK, I will climb down
from my soap box and just 'exhale'!
What great and wonderful things
have you been knitting and reading
