~ 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! ~
Last week I clicked over to Pinterest and the first thing I saw was this sweet little sweater. I immediately starting brainstorming about what yarn I wanted to knit it in. Once my chosen yarn arrived, I dropped all other knitting projects. I may be unrealistic in thinking that I can get this sweater finished for Beatrix (and next there will be one for Larkspur) before it’s too hot to wear it, but my plan is to knit it big enough that she can wear it next fall and spring. So far I’m not doing very well. I started knitting the yoke and then realized that I really ought to be slipping the first stitch of every row to make picking up stitches easier and neater when I get to the front bands. I ripped back almost to the beginning and started slipping those first stitches. Next I realized that I was slipping incorrectly so I ripped back again. I’ll get it right sooner or later, and at least I can say that this yarn holds up well to frogging.
I finished To Kill a Mockingbird and then didn’t read anything for a couple of days. A book like that needs space to settle. I’m back to reading Shirt of Flame, still loving Heather King’s frank and honest writing.
**Please visit on Thursday because I am raffling off a really beautiful finished hand knit!
