My knitting this week has been all about using up bits and pieces in my basket. Last week I made a garter stitch cowl and this week I'm nearly done with this lovely hat. The yarn is Malabrigo which makes it very decadent knitting :) I have no idea who it will be for, maybe me, maybe a gift. I finished the top last night while we tried not to watch the election coverage (we were flipping between channels). I also started to knit some stocking ornaments that are not in the photo.
I am reading The Tiger's Wife and even though I am a few chapters in, I cannot give you thoughts about it because I really don't know what's going on! I do like her style of writing and I do like how she switches her storytelling from the present to the past. The reviews on Goodreads were very mixed about the book so I think my experience so far is on target. I do like the book enough to keep reading, and that is a good sign.
So while I'm in my holiday knitting mode I've been dreaming of casting on a lacy shawl for me. Do you do that? Wish for other knits on the needles?
What are you knitting and reading?
