I am currently reading Whitethorn Woods by Maeve Binchy. I love this book so far. Each chapter is a short story and like all of her other books she will tie all of the characters together near the end of the book. I enjoy her writing style very much. I picked up the book Blogging for Bliss and started reading it. Someone on a previous yarn along featured it......I cannot remember who and it might be more than one person. Whoever you are, thanks for the idea! Also for some light reading I am revisiting Elizabeth Zimmermann's book, Knitter's Almanac. I have read this book many times. So I just pick a chapter or part and read bits and pieces.
My project is the Elderberry Wine Shawl. The process of knitting this shawl is pure bliss. The yarn is soft and the pattern is addictive. The patterning to the left of the books is Chart E. I have it memorized now since it has to be repeated 30 times!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday full of knitting and reading. If you would like to see what other bloggers are reading or knitting check out Ginny's Blog-Small Things-you will definitely be in for a treat.
That shawl is gorgeous! I may have to give it a try. You just can't go wrong with EZ!ReplyDelete
Oh, the shawl is really beautiful and you can even tell from the picture that it's soft! I have been wanting to read Knitter's Almanac for awhile now. Next on my list I think.ReplyDelete
Dropping in as part of Yarn Along to say "hi". I love the look of your shawl. I wish I could feel it.ReplyDelete
You;re the second person I've seen this week reading Blogging for Bliss and Elizabeth Zimmerman. Is the blogging book worth reading? It looks interesting. And you continue to turn out beautiful knitting.ReplyDelete
beautiful shawl!! I am actually thinking of crocheting some for mom's day gifts :).ReplyDelete
Your shawl is beautiful!! Would you believe our library doesn't have anything by Elizabeth Zimmerman?!ReplyDelete
(sorry about that previous comment ~ typo...)
Thanks for your suggestion about soaking the wool! I will definitely have to give it a try.ReplyDelete
I haven't tried knitting a shawl but yours is gorgeous and making me think I need to give it a go.
How are you liking Blogging for Bliss? I was so excited to read it. I saved it and saved it and in the end, I was a little disappointed. Maybe you are having a better time of it than me...ReplyDelete
I can't wait to try some Elizabeth Zimmerman. Your shawl is lovely!ReplyDelete
My birthday is coming up and I've been hoping for some Zimmerman reads to come my way. Keep your fingers crossed for me! What would you read first if you'd never read any EZ before?ReplyDelete
That shawl is so gorgeous! The color, the pattern... fabulous!ReplyDelete
Pretty! I'm reading EZ's Almanac right now too. Love it!ReplyDelete
More EZ! She is everywhere these days!ReplyDelete
The pattern on your shawl is lovely - and look a little terrifying to me!
