Joining Nicole and Ginny to share what is on my needles and on my nightstand this week.
This week has been a bit nuts. We have a virus rampaging through the house. It has been worse for others but has still taken a toll on our back to school week and, of course... my knitting time! I know, such suffering.
I actually finished a sock. Can you believe it? I really enjoyed making this sock, and I will talk more about it in this week's podcast, so long as I don't succumb overly much to the illness. But this yarn was a lot of fun. The colors were so funky and fun. I am also happy to announce I have cast on the second sock! I promised myself I would not cast on a new pair until I finish this pair. And I am dying to start working with the Holi yarn from Madelintosh that I got for Christmas.
I was working on a hat for Evie, but I just couldn't do it. I was so bored with it and all I had done was the ribbing. So I frogged it and decided that perhaps I needed to do some selfish knitting. I cast on the Pasha hat and I am super excited. I love Jane Richmond's designs.
As for reading I just finished a great 90's romance novel, Until You (which is third in a series of Judith McNaught's books). I really have a soft spot for these older romances and they always make me long to get back to writing... someday... someday... When I was almost done with my romance I got notice from the library that a book I had been waiting for had come in! I loved The Snow Child, so I am thrilled to get into Eowyn Ivey's latest novel To the Bright Edge of the World. I am hoping to start today!
Looking forward to checking out everyone else's posts and hope you guys will join me for my knitting and such podcasts on You Tube!
