This week for knitting I have been concentrating on a floppy (slouchy) hat for either my son or my husband. I wanted to use up some of my left over sock yarn from previous sock projects. I striped four different sock yarns during the ribbing section. I felt that I might run out so I added a fifth stripe in the body of the hat. Each stripe is four rows. I think it looks pretty good. I will not be happy when I have to bury all the loose threads though. Here is my project page. My other knitting is the cold mountain shawl that I started a couple of weeks ago. I have barely touched it, but I did knit a row or two this week. I finished a little baby sweater over the weekend that just turned out wonderfully. I think gray is my new go to color.
This week I am reading The Wednesday Sisters. This book is a very compelling read. I am interested in all of the characters and the story flows quite nicely. She writes about the personal lives of five women and weaves in their current events at the time. So I get a refreshing history lesson-how nice!
I am joining Ginny at small things.
