Thought this week I'd show my progress on my citron shawl. For me it is compelling knitting, and it's not boring knitting. I love this shawl and this mystery yarn is just as nice. I am on the fifth ruching and I hope I have enough yarn to get to nine sections!! It all depends on how much yarn I have, the vendor said 1000 yards. Let's hope she was right!! I posted yesterday about my sweater and the sleeve is knitting up so fast compared to the never ending body.
I finished my book, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night time and it was a very good book. The main character is a boy with autism and he decides to investigate why his neighbor's dog was killed. I found it fascinating to see the world through his eyes and his experiences. It is a somewhat sad book in that he's misunderstood and yet you see how much he overcomes with life's challenges with his many coping strategies. His parents were real and even though they loved him dearly you could see the challenges they faced taking care of him and trying to understand him. I think it is a must read.
What are you knitting and reading?
