I finished a shawl over the weekend and was down to one project-the featherweight cardigan (blue project on the left, hee hee I mean on your right!). I love that giddy feeling of starting a top down cardigan and I knit full steam ahead until I divide for the sleeves......then because of all the stockinette I get a little bored. That is why I like to have more than a couple of projects on the needles. Then I can switch around.
So I casted on a pair of socks for my husband in gray. He loves hand knit socks! I will make up a stitch pattern when I get the cuff done. I always cast on a multiple of four (68 stitches for him). I have a generic vanilla sock pattern that is memorized. So since I'm on the cuff, I don't know what the sock's future holds yet.
The Story Sisters-oh! It was such a good book and if you have been reading this blog, I read it "fast". It's not a very happy book but I loved her character description through life's events. I enjoyed the plot and the writer has such a lyrical magical style to story writing. I think I might read it again to absorb more of the creative writing. So yes, I do recommend this book.
My new novel that I'm reading is The Weird Sisters that I started two days ago and I am not very far into the book so I cannot opine. I'm hoping that it's a good book :)
What are reading and knitting?
