Currently on the Needles
I am nearly finished with Station Eleven and I've been enjoying the novel. My reading time has been slim since my son has still been around since last Wednesday. However, he is heading to the train station as I write this and I know I'll finish this book today. Promise. I know a few of you out there enjoyed this book, do you have other books similar to this one that you would recommend? Just wondering.
My knitting has been all about hats. I finished two and posted yesterday. I quickly started another fair isle hat using the left over red for the blue as the main color. I boldly thought that I had plenty of the white and during the afternoon of knitting I came to the realization that I was delusional in that bold thought process.
So as any knitter would do, I went to my LYS and bought another skein (the ONLY one left....). I said it was an emergency yarn purchase. The knitting group there chuckled and the owner said "it's good the emergency department was opened". Thank God for real brick and mortar yarn stores.
Today, I can confidently knit the hat knowing I have my back up skein. Phew! This hat will be sent to my daughter who was eyeing up the blue one as her own. I went up a needle size and hope the fit is better before blocking.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
