I have mainly been knitting this light and airy scarf over the week. The yarn is 100% linen and boy is it every stiff and scratchy. It's a good thing I'm using metal needles because the yarn just slips on and off easily despite the stiffness. Supposedly once this linen is washed it's going to be the softest fabric ever! I'll believe it when I see it, call me Doubting Thomas on this one. This accessory will be perfect for the summer since it's a breathable fiber. I should be done with this over the weekend. I'm excited to get to the soaking part, who knew laundry could be fun?
I haven't looked at my husband's socks for the week, I was slightly sidetracked by being a test knitter for trulymyrtle. I was lucky to knit up this hat for her, my project page is here. It was a fun knit, you should definitely check out the pattern when it goes live on Ravelry :)
I started The Clover House over the weekend and so far I'm only in the beginning stages of the plot. I bought the book based on the cover art and the blurb summary on the back. It's one of those books that have a present day plot and a past plot which I tend to love. Also there are plenty of characters in the book-another bonus. You have to admit that it's a beautiful book cover!
What are you knitting and reading?
