I've been focusing on my only two projects this week. The first project is the pi shawl in the photo. I am less than 20 rows away from the last section of lace. Once that is complete I'll be doing the lace edging. Getting to the lace edging is motivation enough for me, so exciting! This project is knit during the day without many distractions. Once evening hits, I set it aside. It is not fun to fix knitting errors in laceweight yarn. Trust me.
My other project is the tea leaves cardigan for me! I've just completed the yoke and started the body of the sweater. Love all that stockinette and mindless knitting. If you're contemplating a sweater for yourself this one is a great one to knit up. It's with worsted weight and the directions are written clearly.
Still reading the same books and enjoying each one. In Wuthering Heights, Cathy Sr. is just starting to be a bit of a brat. Heathcliff is always moody and Hindley is going to get what's coming to him. His wife just died and he's going to become "undone". Love the drama and the clever way the story is told through Mrs. Dean. Excellent.
My Anne Lamott book Plan B is over half way read. I read one or two chapters each night. Each chapter is an essay so it's easy to pick up and put down. I find this book richer in thoughts and reflections but I guess that comes with aging and finding your voice in writing. I'm also laughing more while reading this book. She is quite a funny storyteller.
What are you knitting and reading?
