Currently on the Needles


My pullover and my cardigan are slowly making progress.  I just finished the second sleeve of my cardigan and will be picking up the neckband today!  I'm still thinking that I'll be wearing this pretty cardigan at a wedding at the end of the month :)

Oh my reading!  I finished We are not Ourselves and it was spectacular.  It is a sad book so read some reviews on Goodreads before you take the plunge.  I enjoyed it, I thought that it could have been a shorter book but other than that, a great read.

I'm now reading The Girl on the Train on my kindle.  I only just started so I have no opinions.

What are you knitting and reading this week?

  1. I almost started We are not Ourselves yesterday, but needed something more upbeat, I can't 'do' sad right now.
    I did read The Girl on the Train and it wasn't bad.
    Have fun picking up the neckband, I think you will make your wedding goal.

  4. I am knitting my first citron shawl and it is such an easy knit. It's so light weight, it'll be perfect for late summer/fall.

  16. I am enjoying the picture of the side by side sweaters! I just finished listening to Girl on the Train last week. I enjoyed it quite a bit more than the other "Girl" book. It was uncomfortable and I figured it out, but I still liked it. Also it was well narrated :) Currently I'm focusing on 2 pairs of socks I have on the needles. I have so many things I want to knit so I'm trying to narrow the focus ...

  22. You are such a fast knitter! I'm on the list for Girl on the Train; at one time the list was 1050 people long! So it must be a popular read.

  23. I'm happy for you that you read a solid, good book. I like these cozy colors for your pullover and for the cardigan. I've started a French mystery about the art world and am into more my historical romance novel. Knitting the same ol'.

  25. Love the colours of your pullover and cardi and fingers crossed the cardigan will be done in time, but sounds like you have time management well under control. I'm knitting on a shawl and reading The Bees.
