~ 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? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
Beatrix’s cardigan is finished minus buttons, and I have already cast one on for Larkspur. I’m excited about my first effort at writing a sweater pattern. I also cast on a vest for Keats this week, but he doesn’t know it, and I hope to keep it a surprise. Honestly, this isn’t what I want to be knitting right now. Keats requested a rainbow vest last winter (rainbow minus pink or purple he specified) and while I did find yarn that met his specifications, I didn’t get around to casting on. I realize that he won’t be interested in wearing a rainbow vest for much longer and I will regret it if I don’t fulfill his wish. Purling with yarn that doesn’t have much spring is really hard on my left hand, so I will have to take my time. Thankfully, once I reach the body, the vest will be straight stockinette in the round. So, a row here and a row there, hopefully I will finish this up for Christmas.
I’m reading The Betrothed and really enjoying it.
