Another yarn along has arrived! I always enjoy seeing what everyone is reading and knitting every Wednesday. My knitting is still the same three projects. I decided to only show one project in my photo which is my sprouts shawl. I am over half way done and at first it was difficult for me to find my rhythm. I tend to memorize patterns so I need not rely on chart reading. Not so with this shawl. It is just not something to memorize, however I have found areas that allow me to look at the chart a little less often. I am thoroughly enjoying this knit. It is my first shawl that is knitted from end to end in an elongated triangle.
For my other knitting that is not in the above photo- I am working the body shaping decreasing on my hawthorne cardigan. This is my tv knit because of the miles and miles of stockinette stitch. I am not complaining, just stating a fact! I am almost done with Chart B of my periwinkle frost shawl. I am over half way done knitting this shawl and I love this pattern! If you're in the mood for lace knitting, try it
My book this week is the same, The Kitchen House. I find it a compelling read overall. I am enjoying the book and the story line never stops evolving. It takes place on a plantation in the late 1700's when slavery and owning people is the norm. This book skillfully exposes the hardships and adverse treatment slaves received without the graphic detail (I am ultra squeamish). But it makes me very very sad to know that events I am reading in a fictional book have actually happened.
