~ 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? ~ Ginny
|Chase is convinced it makes great armor.|
Despite a slow start on the sleeve last week (I didn't knit at all on Wednesday *gasp*), I did finish it Tuesday morning. I added an extra inch per Chase's request so the sleeve is 19 inches in length.
|I did manage to cast on the cuff for Chase's other sleeve, too.|
Last week Chase and I finally got to our library to pick up more reading material. He is in desperate search for robot and dragon themed books. I'm trying to remember the books I read when I was his age. I'm pretty sure that they were Isaac Asimov, and I can see the cover of the books clearly, but I cannot find them via title right now. I know there are a few series and I think we'll borrow them all. One of the books I picked up and read, and loved, is Logan Ward's See You in a Hundred Years: Four Seasons in Forgotten America. What a great story. I laughed, I stressed, I was so happy with their community that was there for them.
Chase is also wanting to join in again this week. He'd like me to point out that after casting on and knitting on size 10 needles, he decided he wanted smaller needles. It was rough to watch 10 rows be taken off, but we did cast on again (this time only 30 stitches) and off he went again. He's got about 8 rows now. The last two books in the How to Train Your Dragon series arrived yesterday (he used his allowance to order them) and he is deep in reading again. He also picked up a trilogy at the library that was on the shelf above a robot book we found. It's called The House Called Awful End: The Eddie Dickens Trilogy. The cover illustrations are what caught my attention, and after briefly looking over the book, Chase took all three. He says it's really good. He's also got another book he's reading, but left it in the car last night. I think at any given moment, Chase may be juggling three different books!
Happy knitting to everyone -- stay cool this week!
