A Purple Scarf
This week I'm working on a simple scarf with an easy cable and lace pattern from my imagination. With only 37 stitches on the needles it should be going faster than it is. I had a hiccup with some arm pain, but I think I know what caused it. One word: posture. As in how I sit on the love seat. Oh to be 20 years old again and sit any which way for hours with not one little ache or pain. I should have appreciated my pliable body more back then. Anyways, the yarn is Cascade 220 a basic yarn that can do incredible projects.
My book this week, is the new Anne Lamott book Help Thanks Wow. It is wonderful to read, her writing is fresh and real and you feel like she is just sitting across from you at a cafe table having a personal chat. I love her reflections about God and her universal stance on life. This is a great little book to pick up if you want to get a sense of her writing style. I highly recommend it!
On Friday I will be getting my daughter who only has two weeks off. Her finals schedule was quite long and strenuous (law school). So for two weeks everyone will be here and I'm looking forward to it. Yes even the noise and chaos!! I still have baking to do and cleaning, but then who doesn't??
What are you knitting and reading this week?
