I’m working on the second mosaic band on my Emiliana shawl.  This is seriously such a fun knit!  I am knitting it in sport weight wool at a bigger gauge than the pattern calls for (? not sure if that’s how to describe it-less stitches per inch) so it is going pretty quickly for me.

I am reading a book that I have been anticipating for a while now, Hallie Lord’s On the Other Side of Fear.  I met Hallie last year at the Edel Gathering, and knew I liked her.  Now, reading her book, I realize we are two peas in a pod.  I struggle with worry and fear and her words are just what I needed to read right now.  I pre-ordered a copy weeks ago, and then Hallie surprised me by sending me a copy too.  So, I have an extra!  I’d love to send it to one of you.  Just mention it in the comments if you’d like to read it, and I’ll randomly select a winner before next week’s Yarn Along.  (U.S. only please!)

I stayed up too late finishing The Winthrop Woman last night.  I really enjoyed it.  Actually, it was a very good week for both reading and knitting, as I got to start the mosaic part of my Emiliana shawl. The rows are full of slipped stitches and go quickly.  I would have made even more progress had I not been so glued to The Winthrop Woman!
