Well as you can see I am still reading the same book(s). The Help is really really really good, I wish I read more during the day so I can finish it. But those snippets of time are for knitting. I am also slowly reading The Dirty Life. I read barely a page this week so it is pretty much idle.
I have made a lot of progress on my swallowtail shawl. I only have about 10 more rows and then I can cast off. I have really enjoyed this pattern and would like to knit it again with 100% wool. Right now I am using alpaca/silk blend and it is quite "slinky". I drop stitches frequently which means I am fixing it almost every time I pick it up.
My other project is the valley cardigan. I just need TWO sleeves--that is it. Oh and a little bit of the neckline. Wouldn't it be great to have it done in a week??? I think I will try very hard to focus on this goal. I would love to have it out of my knitting bag :)
I would love to hear what you are knitting and reading! If you want to see what other's are doing, go on over to Ginny's blog~Small Things!!
