I've started two new knitting projects this past week. The first one is the color affliction shawl and I posted yesterday all about it. I am happy to report that I reached the short row section and have added the third color in the garter stitch knitting-yay! I will definitely be making this shawl more than once. It is very easy to knit and talk at the same time. The added bonus is I am not bored to tears with the garter stitch, my guess is the color changing makes it FUN.
My other knitting project is a cowl out of blue sky alpaca. This pattern is my own creation and I'm not sure if I'm liking the amount of stitches I've casted on. So, I will be deciding soon whether to keep on knitting or ripping out and casting on all over again. It would greatly help if I knew for sure if I wanted to wrap the cowl twice around my neck or just once. The yarn is heavenly to knit with. Super soft and fluffy!
I continue to read The House at Riverton. I suspect it will take me quite a while to read this book. I am enjoying it immensely and the author is very gifted at unveiling a complicated story line with many twists. I have my daughter home for spring break this week and next week my son will be off-I'm already a slow reader with an empty house so you can imagine that the book is just sitting there during their visits home.
