I have been a busy knitting beaver this past week. I finished (finally) my pink cardigan last week and then had to wait for it to dry. I guarantee you I will be knitting that pattern again in the very near future, I absolutely loved it! I also finished my dad's socks for Christmas, here is the Ravelry page. With each project finished I felt lighter and happier knowing that new projects could be cast on without feeling dread. Remember four projects at the same time is my maximum. For some reason I feel like I am cheating on one while working on the other. I do like to mix it up though with intricate knitting and easy knitting.
My current project is another cowl with my pattern only in fingering weight. I cast on more stitches (can't remember how many but I'll put the number on the project page). The wool has been in my stash for quite a while. I'm thrilled to be knitting with it and seeing the colors of autumn in my working hands.
I started a new book, non fiction this time. This book, Buddha Standard Time was highly recommended by my daughter. It has been sitting in my "to read" pile for months. I thought it was about time I read it. So far I am really enjoying it. The book has little meditation exercises to capture living in the moment. Tell me who doesn't need that? I know I sure do!
What are you knitting and reading this week?
