Since Christmas I've been busy knitting small projects while neglecting the big projects that sit patiently in my knitting bag. Once those socks in the background are completed, I will once again focus on that lovely brown sweater. I miss working on it and I'm a little giddy thinking about spending hours on mindless stockinette stitch. I made another wurm hat, because you can never ever just own one. I think it's like the citron shawl, I could knit this hat again and again and again. The yarn for the wurm hat is Cascade 220 sport superwash wool and it is so so squishy!! You have to try it!!
My book, The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey, is an impulse buy. The main reason that I carried it to the check out counter is for the cover art and the word SNOW. What sealed the deal was the description with words like: Alaska and fairy tale. It's about a childless couple and their sadness while homesteading in Alaska in the 1920's. I think it's going to be a very compelling read, I hope I'm right!
What are you knitting and reading this week?
