On Monday night I started a baby sweater with the same wool that I used for the fingerless mitts which I completed! My to do Christmas knitting list is dwindling down fast. But so is my resolve. I still have three pairs of socks to knit for my family. I think I can do it. I have many more movies I can pop in and watch while I loving labor over every single stitch. Anyways, back to this sweater. It is the top down sweater by Elizabeth Zimmermann. I have this sweater pattern memorized over all and I love how quickly it knits up with worsted weight wool. Today or tomorrow it shall be done. After that, I will be button diving.
I started reading A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg, who is an excellent story teller. I've read this book at least twice before and it's a fantastic re read during the holiday season. This will be my last holiday book read. I am toying with reading Les Miserables before the movie is shown in theaters BUT I am a slow reader and I know I will not finish the book, there lies the hesitation. I cannot wait to see the movie the trailers look fabulous!!
What are you knitting and reading?
