Even though I had a lovely week of vacation, my knitting has progressed ever so slowly. Why is that? I always accomplished more when I am at home. I am still (sigh) working on the citron shawl. Currently I am knitting the edging and each row is taking forever. I am hopeful that there will be a post next week with it blocked. In the photo above is my lovely new project, cinnamon grace shawl. There is a bit of sparkle in the wool. I really like this pattern because I have it roughly memorized :)
I am still (sigh) reading The Orchid House-I decided not to photograph it because it's been languishing around these yarn along postings. I love the story when it flashes back to the 1940's. I have a very difficult time reading the current time story line. I cannot pinpoint exactly why. My guess is the dialogue is not running smoothly like I think it should in my mind.
While I was at the library, I happened to come across some interesting cookbooks. The older I get the more I like to have general ideas for different dishes. I almost never follow a recipe exactly as written. I wouldn't mind owning either of these books! As I mentioned yesterday, I am participating in the 30 day vegan workshop over at Beauty that Moves. So I thought the more ideas the better!
What are you knitting and reading this week?
