Currently on the Needles



Same book this week but different knitting.  Yesterday I posted about a possible shawl being cast on since I was shawless in my knitting projects.  I decided on the Eyeblink shawl and so far I'm loving the easy back and forth knitting.  You can never ever have too many shawls on the needles, in your closet or to give as gifts.  This is my all time favorite item to knit up.  Ravelry project page is here.

I continue to enjoy A Tale for the Time Being.  The characters are funny but in a sad funny kind of way.  I love cracking open the book and reading a few chapters here and there.  I'm also reading Right Ho, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse on my Kindle.  A delightfully light and entertaining read, and fast!

What are you knitting and reading this week?

  4. I like Eyeblink! That yarn is going to work well with it. I'm leaning towards the Weigh It Shawl by Susan B. Anderson. But I really have the sweater bug so who knows what will be on the needles next!

  9. That's such a lovely pattern, I think it's going to look amazing in that yarn! I've been meaning to read Wodehouse since watching the Jeeves and Wooster show with my friends in college, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

  10. Totally agree, you definitely cannot have too many shawls. The yarn is such a striking colour.

  11. A shawl is my next project as well, I think, as I've never done one! I work in a library and it gets pretty chilly in there what with over-airconditioning and all. I am the stereotype. Also: JEEVES! I love Wodehouse.

  12. I've given in to sock knitting and I'm still trying hard to not give in to the allure of shawl knitting.....I already know that one would never be enough :)

  16. I have been sipping on my tea and getting caught up with your posts from the last couple of weeks. You are amazing! How do you get it all done? I love seeing what you've been working on, and I still say you have the best color choices! And thank you for pictures of Frodo. He is too adorable. :)

  20. You are absolutely right about shawls, Karen! My all time favorite, too. There is not a single day that, at some point or another, I'm not wearing one! Can't wait to see this one finished! blessings ~ tanna
