From Ginny: 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?
Linking up with Small Things..
Well good morning! I've been a tad bit busy over the past week (hence no post last week), but I am back now!
|(Sage really likes the hat I made and was hoping he would get to lay down on it)|
Let me tell you.. first and foremost I am really over this MKAL shawl. I'm still on the first "wing" of it, getting closer to be done with it, but even though it is really easy knitting, it's really boring. Last week I put it up for a couple of days for a challenge. I used my opossum yarn and turned it into a hat! Now I am just waiting for a cooler day to wear it. I think it will be wonderful this winter.
The shawl is to a point where I don't want to take it out with me if I go someplace and my knitting should tag along. Those two balls of yarn are annoying and seem to escape the bag and end up in my purse (you know.. tangled with my keys.. a pencil..my wallet). My new travel project is Mom's sweater. I'm still working on the ribbing, of course, but it is at a great portable state right now.
To be honest, I really have not had a lot of time to knit this week. As a matter of fact, I think the last time I picked up my needles was on Sunday evening. However, I have been able to read so I started The Midwife and finished reading it yesterday afternoon. I knew I would love it. PBS is going to start running the series Call the Midwife next month based off this memoir so I wanted to be ready. I was not disappointed! I think my favorite character was Sister Monica Joan. I really loved the peek into 1950's midwifery.
With my morning free, I think I will work on that pesky shawl some more.
