As I sit and type this post early in the morning I am thankful that the lightening has not zapped the electricity, so far. Our house is all electric and when it goes, my happiness goes :) I think today is our last day of experiencing the remnants of hurricane Isaac which for the most part is overcast skies and occasional rain.
So my knitting keeps changing. I started a pair of mitts that my knitting friends have knitted but I was not having fun with the pattern and fiddling with a cable needle and keeping track of where I was in the pattern. I ripped that one right out and started a new pattern . It is too early to tell but I do believe I am liking this pattern a bit better. I am still working on my dad's socks and my pink cardigan.
I have started a new book! Yes, I finished The Flight of Gemma Hardy and enjoyed it. I loved how it echoed Jane Eyre but also had different plots. It is worth the read. The ending for me seemed a tiny bit rushed but I still enjoyed it and would recommend the book. My new book The House at Tyneford is supposed to fulfill my emptiness of Downton Abbey episodes. I'll let you know if it meets the criteria. I just started it this week. Stay tuned!
For all you knitters out there I have a free pattern here at ravelry or click on the pattern page on my blog.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
