Last night while I was trying to sleep, which lately is almost every night, I was thinking about two things. My first thought is how I will never eat cheese again (lactose intolerant). I always have this resolution when I am NOT eating. I think for today I am writing it boldly where I can see it so I do not forget! My second thought is my yarn along post!! Yep at 1-2 a.m. I am thinking of the my post. I did fall asleep so I wonder does this post contain a drowsy factor?
I am reading The Lace Reader and it's a different kind of book. I can say I am unsure of what is exactly going on, the narrator starts the story by declaring herself a liar. Well now, I just do not know what is reality or fiction. I love it! The unpredictability of the narration has me eagerly reading and page turning.
The ball of yarn to the left is the beginnings of a featherweight cardigan. I know I swore I would not make another one, but I thought a summer one was in order. This yarn is Claudia's hand painted silk lace and it is extremely soft and oh so lovely. It's been in my stash for quite a while.
My other knitting project is another baby cardigan for one of my husband's racquetball friends who is having a baby any day now for the past two weeks. Men. I bet that baby was already born. They are having another boy so I chose some light blue cotton from my stash. I am doing the old stand by pattern of Elizabeth Zimmermann Not in the photo are the sparkly socks. I just started the second sock!
I finished a sweater yesterday that I posted about here. What are you reading and knitting?
