With great delight I am knitting another tea leaves cardigan. I'm quite confident I can knit this up and wear it before summer arrives, at least that is my plan. The wool is Cascade 220 in a lovely bluish purple or purplish blue. Here is a blog post about my original tea leaves cardigan. I have worn this sweater many times this winter which lead to another being cast on. If you haven't knit this cardigan up, you should because the instructions are very clear and it knits up quickly. I am enjoying the "chunky" yarn in my hands since most of the time I'm knitting with lace or fingering weight wool.
I am reading two books but only photographed one. As you can see I'm reading Wuthering Heights. One day I thought about how I was in the mood for some well written angst, turmoil and characters you love to hate. (Cathy senior to be exact, she is such a brat). I dusted off my 1985 copy given to me from my mom for Christmas and started. Oh, it's like visiting an old friend. I have read this book many many times and each time I gain insight.
My other book is Anne Lamott's Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith. She writes what every mother has ever thought while raising children, in a funny way of course. Her honesty is humbling and funny :)
What are you knitting and reading this week?
