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 can not believe I
am going to say this,
but I have four, FOUR
projects going at one
time. I'm not if I
should be happy with
myself, or hiding in
the corner in shame!
Really though, everything
has a purpose for being
on my needles.
The top photo shows a
pair of knit 3, purl 1 socks
on size 6 needles using
brown fisherman's wool.
These socks must be
done by January 22 for
a son's birthday. They
are going super quick and
I think I will have time
to knit a pair of fingerless
gloves to go along with them.
The second picture is another
pair of socks in the same
pattern, just on size 0 needles.
These are for my only daughter's
birthday which isn't until April.
April may still be too soon for
these as on size 0 it's slow going.
They may get pushed to Christmas
if it looks like I won't make it.
They are a surprise so she will not
be disappointed if I don't finish
The third photo shows a little
bag I carry in my purse. If I am traveling
or waiting too long in a slow line, I
knit. This time it's a hat for the wee one
for Valentine's Day. I have little
applique' hearts to sew on the side.
Once this is complete, I will start
something else that is easy to pick
up and knit no matter where I am.
Does anyone else carry a project
where ever they go?
And the last photo is something
to knit just for me! It is the
Abigail Cardi I told you about a
few weeks ago. I must thank
Lori for all her help and her
encouragement in getting me
started. I know it doesn't look
like much yet, but it will! The yarn,
Tern, from Quince & Co. is a
dream to knit with and the pattern,
if you read ALL the pages and
not just a few [just saying] is really
very easy to follow. I am so excited
about this knit so it is my 'treat'
to knit once my day's work is
complete. I think it's even better
than chocolate! My only problem
is my needles, I am using bamboo
and am thinking I need a sharper
tip, any suggestions on what to
I have been reading for at least
an hour every night just to relax in
bed and unwind. It's one of those
things I use to do, then quit
and am now trying to reestablish.
I downloaded Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's
newest book, All Wound Up and
once again she has not let me
down, I am loving her!
What do you have on your needles
