Currently on the Needles


Hello! I've been knitting fast and furious this past week.  All good, and all fun.  First off is the top down cardigan that is speeding along.  I've separated the sleeves off a day ago and now I'm onto the body.  So much knitting fun.  On the left is a cowl that I cast on a few days ago.  The yarn was a gift from my sister.  I hope to have this finished by the weekend.

I'm still reading Life as We Knew It, and I'm nearly half way through.  It's okay, the novel is written in diary format and the narrator is 15-16 years old.  I have a feeling nothing is going to get better with the moon closer to the earth, but you never know!!

What are you knitting and reading this week?

  4. I love the colours as well - glad you are getting lots done! I put that book on hold at my library last week - sounds like a fairly easy, interesting read.

  5. A new sweater and a warm cowl - just in time for the winter weather that is happening. Our cowls look very similar. I bet you have that sweater finished by early next week.

  14. I am finishing up Julia Quinn's much talked about series and debating what I should read next...an author I haven't tried yet? The next book in The 39 Clues Series? Harry Potter #6? I have to finish up my swap partner's gift today while working on laundry.

  15. Love those two colors together. I was fine knitting socks these past weeks until we had snow today. Now I wish I'd spent more time on my Boxy pullover.

  22. Nice projects! I've started another pair of socks, trying to use some leftover sock yarn because I just love it so much. Hopefully I'll have enough to finish a pair, if not, I'll have to get creative. ;-)

  32. I just love top down sweaters. You are right! They are just so much fun to knit.
    Your yarn is gorgeous. Hope you are not getting too much of that huge storm!

  33. I love the colors of the yarns that you are knitting. I have never knitted a top down sweater, but it is on my list. I just finished knitting a bottom-up vest and I really liked that concept. Enjoy your knitting!

  34. Whew, I just finished John Adams about 10 minutes before the book club arrived! As for knitting I finished a birthday hat, and it's on my blog and soon to go to its new owner.
