My knitting has been quite challenging this past week, but only because I am making rookie mistakes. I did the icord bind off of the body of the pink cardigan THEN tried the sweater on and wanted two more inches in length. I have no idea why I didn't try it on before the bind off. So it took quite some time to undo the icord bind off and put the stitches back on the needles, added the two inches in length and then did the icord bind off again. Currently I am on the neck bind off. Once that is done I will be working on the sleeves. My shortest needles are in another project so I am trying to decide do I knit the other project and release the needles or just slip the stitches on a spare? Decisions... I also finished the mitt that is in the photo last night. Only one more to go!! I think the mitt knitting hurts my hands because of the tight gauge I am getting, so I knit the mitts in spurts.
I finished The House at Tyneford and it was excellent! It's the kind of book that haunts you afterwards. I just love that feeling. I currently am reading Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, just started the book last night so I have no opinions as of yet. I feel like I am on a roll of good book reading so I have my fingers crossed that I am continuing to ride the wave of excellent fiction!
What are you knitting and reading?
