My needles have been on fire this week, or at least it feels like it. I finished the mitts and am quite pleased with them. Now all I need is some very brisk cold air to go along with them. I am thrilled that they match many of my other accessories in my closet. So what am I knitting? I finished the one sock up there in the photo. The socks are for my dad for Christmas and I have only to knit the second sock to match, easy peasy. I've cast on and believe me I am motivated to get these socks out of the knitting bag.
My pink cardigan has seen some knitting as well. I am knitting on dpns for a variety of reasons, one because I do not own a circular needle small enough (too cheap to buy) and I really do not like magic loop or two circulars....I know. I am being stubborn and opinionated, but these dpns work for me and I get the job done. It is only fiddly for about three rows then my mind and hands accept the fiddliness and the knitting becomes even and smooth and happy.
I have romantic visions of finishing both projects by next week......let's see if it becomes reality-nothing wrong with goal setting is there?
My reading is the same. The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is engaging and a nice read before bed. I do love when the author flips from present time to the past. I think it is one of my favorite ways to read a story and piece together a plot.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
