My knitting has not changed that much from week to week but I am going to blame it on big knitting projects, I can do that right? On the far left is my featherweight cardigan which I just blogged about here yesterday. I am on sleeve one and it is zipping along compared to the body. On the far right is a top down vee neck sweater for my husband that I have named Lincoln Green sweater. It too is making a little progress week by week. I am still doing the raglan shaping. Now since I am swimming in a sea of green yarn I decided to cast on a pair of leg warmers for my daughter for Christmas. Some of you know that I am a die hard fan of double pointed needles (dpns). However since the leg warmers are straight knitting with no heel flap I thought I would try an itty bitty circular needle........I will let you know how it goes. I am definitely not knitting as fast as usual, but I assume there is a learning curve for my hands to adjust to the size of the needle (they are size 2 by the way).
My reading is the same, surprise surprise. The only way I can read a book fast is if I read during the day and obviously I find many other things of interest to do. So I only read right before bed time and I usually fall asleep within the hour. The Distant Hours is an excellent book and I am already giving it a five star review before finishing. It is so good I think any ending would be a good one! I am nearly done and I love the characters and the description of the scenery--can I live in a castle, please?
On a side note, I am interested to see if and when my daughter reads this blog and discovers her Christmas present... heh, heh, heh......
