There has been an explosion of casting on new projects and it's been so enjoyable. I finished my brown citron shawl and quickly started two more projects. The green yarn in the photo is a pair of socks and I'm using my pattern lucky for me this will be easy since I've knit it once before. My other project in the photo above is a cowl that I am designing. It's in the early stages so I haven't a ravelry page as of yet. I love the yarn! It's socks that rock in medium weight by Blue Moon Fiber Arts, it was a gift from one of my knitting friends :)
My pink cardigan is making progress and it is not in the photo. I just separated the sleeves off the needles and have started the body. Even though it is all stockinette stitch there is no boredom with some pleats to create and a little bit of waist shaping. Perfect combination.
As you can see by where the bookmark is, I am slowing reading The Flight of Gemma Hardy. It's quite good-I am a night time reader which means I fall asleep eventually. I love how it mirrors Jane Eyre but with an updated time period. Gemma is still at a rotten school and her best friend just died. The writing is beautiful and I love the comfortableness of a favorite classic.
What are you knitting and reading?
I also wrote a guest post at Mad Passions blog about why I knit.
