My knitting is fresh and new! Just in time for spring, well the calender spring because the weather spring is still winter. I've cast on a pair of green socks for my husband. Whenever I'm out and about in yarn stores, I pick up any skein of durable sock yarn for socks. This brand-trekking-is durable. It's my favorite brand for him. I don't know how he does it but he is hard on socks. Oh and guess what? I finished my tea leaves sweater , I love it so :)
I am only knitting small projects until I finish, yes finish this lace shawl. It has been languishing at the bottom of my knitting bag. I desperately want to cast on another sweater so what better way to motivate me but to put limits on myself? Let's see if this works for me. I'll keep you up to date.
My book. Well you know I'm partial to Alice Hoffman, so when I saw The Red Garden and quickly scanned the summary on the back I bought it. It's an unusual book because it is written as a collection of short stories set in one town that spans a few generations. I'm enjoying it immensely for my nighttime reading. One chapter and I've got closure. Her writing is poetic and magical and sometimes weird but in a good way for me. So if you like short story type of books check this one out.
What are you knitting and reading?
