Currently on the Needles
Hello! I'm thrilled to share with you my knitting and reading this week.
On my Asana Shawl, I've reached the lace and beading section. Beading my knitting is right up there with pure bliss. If you haven't done any beading you should. I highly recommend the dental floss technique of placing beads. Ingenious!!
My sock, oh my sock....I am done with the first one and am starting the second sock. I'm doing the afterthought heel trying to maintain the integrity of the disappointing striping. I love Trekking XXL sock yarn but this colorway is quite disappointing.
Last but not least, I'm thinking of knitting another top down cardigan sweater. I loved all of your suggestions in this post but I keep wearing this and this every single week. So I'm going to do another one, minus the lace insert. Now I just have to find my notes..
I continue to read The Sellout which is not a quick and speedy read. Following the heels of the monumental mammoth reading of Alexander Hamilton, I'm having attention troubles at night when the reading is dense. This book is a daytime only reading book for me. So I'm reading My Name is Lucy Barton as my bedtime reading.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
