Currently on the Needles


I have been wanting to get my hands on this book, patiently waiting for it go paperback.  Well imagine my surprise while in Canada at the beginning of the month visiting my in laws finding this book in paperback and on sale!  Score!  I just started reading it so I have no opinions but I am really excited about reading it.  Have you read it?

My knitting has been focused on three projects, I posted yesterday about the mittens I'm knitting.  I started the first sleeve of my sweater and made some progress on the shawl in the above photo.

It's been a good knitting week :)

What have you been knitting and reading this week?

  5. I love the sample knitting in your last post and can't wait to see how it turns out. I'm looking for stocking filler patterns and those mittens look like they would be perfect.
    Lovely pumpkin coloured yarn. I haven't read your book, even heard of it...just going to see if I can find a review for it.
    Happy knitting,

  6. My librarian has been raving about that book so I'm excited to get my hands on it as well. I'll probably opt for the audiobook since I can get through those a lot faster than paper books these days. The benefit of spending 2 hours in the car each day for a work commute. :)

  12. The shawl is looking real nice! I have that book on my list but haven't read it yet. I'm wondering if that would be a good audio book choice.

  18. Lots of projects!! I really liked that book,I still can't believe I read something that big this year, where did I find the time? Haha!

  19. You will love, love, love that book. I was a bit disappointed in the ending but I was also happy that it wasn't a trite, storybook ending, too. :) I'll anxiously await your reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  20. You will love the book. I really loved every word and found it one of the best I read last year. You have made much more progress in a day of knitting than I have in a month!

  21. Good morning! I've taken a long break from reading blogs but when I came back to them I knew yours was one I needed to revisit! You and others have inspired me to finally learn to knit. So thank you!

  22. I found the book simultaneously highly stressful, with a need to keep putting it down to take deep breaths, yet quick-moving because of the short chapters and constantly changing points of view. That said, though, I really liked it and hope you do, too.

  23. The colour of your shawl is amazing, I love it. I have not heard of that book, I do hope you enjoy it and I look forward to hearing more about it :)

  24. It is on my "to read" list--I'd love to hear your thoughts about it as you get further into the book. I probably won't get to it until the holiday break! Thx. --Tammy

  29. I liked that book. The author really researched and came away with a unique story, full of metaphors. It's good.

  30. you make such beautiful things! :)

  31. Argh, I have not yet started that book and it's been almost a year since I bought it! First my daughter stole it from me, then I cajoled her into giving it back only to give it BACK to her so she could read it on a business trip. She still has not returned it!!! : ) I'm still reading Elizabeth Gilbert's book "Big Magic", it's such a great read!xx

  32. I just love the look of your shawl. I look forward to hearing what you think of the book.

  33. I have that on my TBR because of maybe you or someone else. I love a good deal. I've been so cheap with books, borrowing from the library for quite some time now unless I know I'd want to keep it forever in Kindle or paperback form. I'll be interested in seeing what your impressions are throughout your reading journey.

  34. Oh I'm currently listening to that audiobook and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. I think it would be fabulous to read and am considering a revisit if I can ever get back to reading regularly. I'm knitting a bulky baby blanket that I think will actually be done this weekend. And still, in between all the other life moments am chipping away at my Twinleaf shawl :) Happy knitting and reading to you!

  35. That book is on my list, but the library never has it in :( One day I will get to read it. I just finished knitting a hat, and am working on a scarf. A pair of fingerless mitts will get cast on this evening.

    Hope you are well Karen.

  36. I'm anxious to hear how you like that book as it's on our book club list for next year. I just finished The Walk by Richard Paul Evans only to discover it was part 1 of 5, and I am hooked. Still knitting on holiday projects and the Scoreboard Scarf.

  37. I've had my eye on that book, too. Please let us know your thoughts when you are further into the story. Your shawl is going to be so pretty--that color is gorgeous.

  40. Those are great mittens! I read All the Light We Cannot See last spring. I don't want to say more than that for fear I'll give something away. I'll wait until you are finished.

  41. Tis the season for orange! Although I've been drawn to it every season lately! Lovely knitting. I have heard a lot about this book, but didn't have the time to read it when it came up on my library list, so I passed for now...
