See that? Yep, there is some sparkle in those socks. Sometime last year I was shopping at a yarn store with my daughter and she picked out this yarn for socks. It is definitely not something I would pick out. However, I have to admit it is fun to be knitting with socks that twinkle-and the striping pattern is way better than I thought it would ever be. Ravelry notes are here. My other knitting project is the hawthorne sweater which I started in January. I want it out of my project bag. I am nearly done with the body of the sweater then it's on to sleeves!! As I knit this I pretend I am knitting something for spring...Oh and I finished my Destiny shawl, maybe a big winter storm will arrive and I will wear it? Well there is next year, I suppose.
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand is my current read and it is surprisingly good. It is not your average romance novel. There are many subplots that keep me wanting to read more about the village that he lives in. The first couple of chapters were slow going. But now that I'm about half way through, I like the main characters and want to know what happens. Always a promising sign to a good book.
What are you reading and knitting?
