Tea and Jam Shawl
This week I have been feverishly knitting away on a shawl that is addictive. The design is simple and easy to memorize and the construction allows a knitter to knit until the yarn runs out. That kind of shawl knitting is the best. One more row has been my mantra and still there is yarn galore! The wool was bought at a fiber festival many years ago and originally intended for a pair of socks for my husband. I changed my mind because he is hard on socks so now I only knit with dedicated sock yarn with a nylon blend for maximum life span. Speaking of socks, he needs more pairs....soon after the shawl, right?
Currently I'm reading two books, the one in the photo- The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline is excellent. The ending is not far for me and the story has me savoring every single word. It is a must read book and I haven't finished reading it! My other book is on my ipad and is borrowed from the elibrary. Blowing on Dandelions by Miralee Ferrell is a gentle easy read and I've paired this book with my frantic knitting during the daytime.
What are you knitting and reading?
