I have to be completely honest, my knitting has been quite minimal since Saturday due to overdosing on knitting projects. The good news is that because I have been barely knitting my forearms are almost as good as new! I have my barnacle sweater on the needles, working on the body. I savor every single stitch. The yarn is Quince and Co. Tern and the pattern is here.
The socks are for my daughter for Christmas IF I finish them. She bought the yarn years ago with the hopes of knitting a stripy scarf. So it sat in my stash and I saw a pair of socks instead. If you knew her you would say "that is her colorway"! I am not that fond of the colorway.
I continue to read A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg. I've read it before and it's a good book to read during the holiday season. The book in the photo Life is a Verb by Patti Digh was a gift from my sister. She saw me flipping through it during our shopping expeditions. Sneaky sneaky little elf. I've been reading a bit here and there, I love how there are many journal prompts and great reflections.
Oh and a new pattern is available for free here or in Ravelry..
What are you reading and knitting?
