Current Knitting News


I've been feverishly knitting this shawl and love the gradient color changes.  So subtle and yet striking.  The pattern is memorized and I seamlessly pick up and knit away and get lost in the rhythm of the knit.  Knitting is meditative and soothing.

I finished that cowl I've had on the needles since the unexpected snow storm, right now it's upstairs drying after a soak and a block.  Oh yeah, I'm nearing the body ribbing of my cardigan.  You know what that means -- sleeve knitting!

I started this book, A curious Tale of the In-Between which has been mildly entertaining.  I think it's a middle schoolish book but some of the vocabulary is meaty.  I picked this novel up at a used book sale last week.  If you know me well, you know I chose the book because of the cover art!

What are you up to these days?

  2. Still working on the scarf for grandson. Anxious to start socks! Looking for a good easy pattern for my first pair. The heel directions throw me.
    I too seem to choose a book by its cover. Lol!

  4. The shawl will be lovely I think - I can't wait to see the finished object. Isn't it funny how sometimes you just get in a mode to knit like crazy, and then other times, it's just one thing or a little at a time?

  7. Karen such beautiful projects, not a lot getting done here. The sun is shining and we have just got back from a heavenly picnic on the beach, chatting and doing nothing. Tomorrow is another day. We are definitely living the dream.

  8. I love the purple of your shawl and the cover of your book looks interesting; I can see why it grabbed you. You are so funny! That happens to me sometimes also, reading something wrong. Oh boy sometimes I have to let my adjust when reading something small. I don't think I need reading glasses yet but my astigmatism probably causes it.

  9. The cover of the book is a little haunting. I'd want to know the mystery inside too.

    I've been knitting my way through socks, socks, socks (and a hat)!

    I started a book about a couple that picked up and moved to Denmark. So far, it's a very good book.

  12. I like the shawl that you are knitting. It is hot here tonight so the thought of knitting while I my hands are sweating is not so appealing. Soon it will be A/C weather, but not yet.

  13. Love all of your projects, especially your purple shawl. Looks like an interesting book, at least from the cover. I recently finished Winter Garden by Kristen Hannah and enjoyed it.
