Currently on the Needles



I started a pair of socks for my husband this week.  He's been so kind and supportive I had to repay him with some knitwear.  I know, you are thinking but what about the blanket, cowl and hat that you have on the needles.  Well, I'm knitting those as well.

Also this week, my blog friend Anke has requested us knitters to make her friend a hat.  You see, her friend is facing some health challenges this year.  If you care to help Anke in the hat knitting visit her post here.

My reading is the same, the book is good and all of the math references go over my head but I'm okay with that.  The author mixes in some technical jargon and some math humor.  It'll be interesting to find out if it's funny to a math major.  Hopefully my son will read the book and let me know.


What are you knitting and reading this week?

  1. And your knitting matches your book!
    There are quite a few projects on my needles these days, something that surprises me with my personality, but I think it must be all the yarn fumes ;)

  3. There's always room for another WIP :) And I love the colours of those socks - Tracey's right, they match the book really well!

    I love maths, although only understand a little. It's great when an author can combine a good read with lots of in-jokes for those that can get them.

  4. Love the socks you are knitting for your hubby! Self striping yarn makes for easy peasy knitting projects.
    Thank you for offering to knit a hat for my friend and spreading the word!! I appreciate you and your kindness so very much!!

  5. Karen, I love the socks you are knitting your husband. The colors are so pretty. I just recently found some sock yarn locally...so after Thanksgiving I am going to attempt to crochet my first pair of socks. I know they won't be as closely woven as the knitted ones, but I am excited to try!

  7. It's nice to have a little of this and a little of that on the needles. The maths in the book would be over my head ,too.

  11. HA! It's about time you caught up with the rest of us who juggle dozens of things on the needles!!!! (please note: you have not seen an FO from me in weeks......!!!! My start pile is gi-normous!!!!)
    Again...I have to laugh----my hubby has a pair knit from that same colorway!!! I think they are his favorites----wishing I had bought two skeins; he's going to have these worn out before the year is out.

  16. I love knitting socks! There is something just fun about four needles working together!
    You do have a lot of projects going on girl! I have never been able to juggle more than two! After that I feel overloaded and confusion sets in! Lo!

  17. Great colors in your sock yarn. And that yummy skein in the last picture, gorgeous. Most of my time has gone into knitting (and reknitting) the baby blanket.

  25. Oh those will make such handsome socks! And what a gorgeous color the hat will be. I love that idea. I need to see if there is anything in my stash that would work.
    I've been keeping you in my prayers. I am glad things are starting to even out <3

  26. The socks look great, Karen! I love the colourway you're using. I'm sure those other knits will see their own fair share of time in your lap too... The book looks interesting. I'm off to see if the library nearby has a copy!

  27. I can't knit socks (well, I've never tried) which is a shame because I love wearing wool socks. the ones you knit look great and I think socks are a perfect gift for hubby! That colour in the Cascade Heathers yarn you have there is lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love that purple yarn. The socks for hubby are going to look great also. I can't wait to read that book. I haven't been able to find it at the library yet. This math teacher will enjoy the humor I believe.

  29. You'll probably finish your socks before I finish mine!

  30. What a great idea to knit a hat for someone who needs one. I'll have to check that out! I love the color of the yarn you used. :)
