Let's start with the positive. I am on the second sleeve!!! I tell you I love top down construction because the bulk of the knitting is in the yoke and that is when I am most motivated to crank out a sweater. Remember this is my second attempt as well. I am not tired of this pattern. I love it! Anyways, the first sleeve was super fast and yesterday I started the second sleeve and I am half way done. All that is left to knit are the button bands....and burying some threads-definitely not a big deal!
Now onto the reading. I am still reading Rainbow Valley from the Anne of Green Gables series. I know, I should have been done by now BUT I was traveling and very busy socializing this past weekend. So that is the excuse and I am sticking with it!! I have not purchased the eighth book in the series yet so I might be reading a little of something else. I am thinking of asking for the book for Christmas, since I am difficult to buy for at times. I looked for it in Ottawa and they only had 1 through 4 of the series.
I also picked up, again, Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac just to leaf through. I have read this book so many times. Little bits here and there. I love her humor and just her enjoyment of life and knitting. What could possibly be better?? In my mind-nothing!
