This week I have been focusing on the legwarmers that I started a couple of weeks ago. I usually knit with double pointed needles and I decided to try out the itty bitty circular needles for a change. Especially since there is straight tube knitting. So far they are okay. I am not madly in love with them but I do not hate them. What I like is that I am on circular needles. What I do not like is that they are wood and I always prefer metal-I think stitches slide around better. What makes my evaluation confusing is that the yarn I am using reynolds-wash-day-wool is very splitty to knit with. I love this yarn because of its softness and its durability. Wash Day wool wears like iron!!
For reading this week I am still on the same book, The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane and so far I am liking it a lot. At the very beginning, on the first page, the author was talking about a character cooking lentils then eating the cooked peas (this stuck in my mind).....I thought peas and lentils are from the same family but two separate foods? So after I got over her pea-lentil interchangeable description I fell into the story line. Who cares? I love lentils and I love peas :D I am enjoying the mystery unfolding.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
