After all of the heat waves we have had in the early spring, it is cold now. I even wore one of my wool sweaters two days ago because it was chilly. I am not complaining, just reporting. The chill in the air has renewed my interest in knitting this soft sparkly shawl. Today I am on the ruffle! I was powering through the pattern just to get to the ruffle which is the best part. I am going to knit the ruffle until the yarn runs out. That's the plan. Yesterday I posted about my featherweight cardigan which has been getting equal knitting time. I usually have three projects going on at the same time so maybe a pair of socks for my husband will make it on the needles this weekend! He is in desperate need of wool socks. I don't know how he manages to work holes in the bottom of the socks but he does. I still have my original pair of wool socks from over 12 years ago-not a hole to be seen!
The book The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffman is GOOD! I am about half way through the book and I really do not care how it ends. Hoffman is excellent at mapping out dysfunctional characters who you empathize for and with and yet dislike a great deal. I am definitely going to read more of her books based on how much I am enjoying this one.
