Currently on the Needles


Oh my needles are flying, well, at least to me they are flying.  I finished my table runner, thank you for all the lovely compliments.  I have returned to my gloves and as you can see, I've completed the thumb gusset and two fingers.  I believe I'll be casting on the other hand tonight.  Finger knitting goes very fast.

I'm nearly finished with Between, Georgia and I'm loving every minute I'm reading it.  The story is fast pace and I have no idea what will happen and that makes me want to read a bit more.  The book is an easy light read and I recommend it.  I also have my Mary Oliver book that was a gift from my daughter over Christmas.  Since it's poetry month, I've been reading bits here and there.

Deborah over at Square Grannie gave a wonderful review of David Copperfield so I've downloaded the book on my ipad that that will be my read during the day.  I'm assuming that this book will take me quite a while, and that's fine.  I have only read three of his novels:  A Christmas Carol, A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations.  I'm looking forward to adding another title to my list.

What are reading and knitting this week?

  2. Ohhhh fingers! I have yet to tackle fingers. So far only fingerless mitts and mitts. You've inspired me though, maybe I'll give it a try, your gloves are beautiful!

  5. Love the mitts!!! I tried to take One Thousand Mornings out of the library (again) yesterday but someone else had gotten it before me. I suppose I should buy myself a copy. I check it out of the library so much!!

  12. I read David Copperfield in 5th or 6th grade for a book report. I remember that I enjoyed it but I don't remember the details....maybe it is time to put it on the list for a re-read! I love Mary Oliver!

  19. i have never been brave enough to do an actual set of gloves. yours look fabulous!

  20. How did I miss your FO table runner? It's gorgeous! I've never done gloves, fancy pants! Your needles are on fire for sure! It's funny that I have been all about procuring ebooks for me and The Kid and David Copperfield completely went over my head. Good idea, but I'm going to go Great Expectations ... maybe this summer when I catch up with my other lengthy list!

  21. I've never made gloves, only mittens. I've always been intimidated by the fingers. Your yarn color is really pretty. You are going to enjoy David Copperfield.

  22. Is that the knotty pattern? Yours are looking great!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Your gloves are beautiful. Lovely colour and the pattern is amazing...love them.

  24. Gosh, Karen, *gloves*! You really are a knitting guru. I love the color you chose, and the pattern is really beautiful. I haven't read any Charles Dickens. I'll have to put him on my list.

  27. Such gorgeous gloves. You are always knitting up wonderful things.

  28. Are gloves hard? I've only done mittens. Still slogging through Blood and Beauty but slipped in a Sara Paretsky mystery.

    ReplyDelete
  29. your gloves are looking great! I feel like I wouldn't have the patience to knit gloves.. I would probably get bored around the 3rd finger and let them sit forever! I do that sometimes with stuffed animals.. knit the body and then avoid the legs!!

  30. Did you read Gods in Alabama, also by Joshlyn Jackson? It was also very good and had a twist at the end that I did not see coming.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've been frogging not knitting, and I'm still reading last month's book.

    The gloves are going to look fabulous when you're done :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I keep saying this, but I am always impressed by your knitting skills!
    I'm not reading the book, so I know it's not the same, but I am in the middle of watching Great Expectations (since you mentioned that book). I started it one night when my hubby wasn't around, and now I just don't seem to get to finish watching the rest of it since he's really not into those kind of movies :)
