A week ago, shortly after finishing this shawl, I decided to cast on another shawl. If you know me, you know I love tiny needles and lace weight yarn and I tend to have a project on the needles at all times to satisfy my knitting desires. When I saw this shawl in the "hot right now" category while noodling around Ravelry, I knew I had to cast on. It's simple and it grows and it's a half circle, a perfect summer project! My ravelry page is here.
The Midwife by Jennifer Worth is an excellent memoir and a lovely read. Call the Midwife TV series is based on this book. (you really should be watching the show as well). As I read this book I feel like she is personally talking to me face to face maybe over a cup of tea. I am getting a history lesson without knowing I am and that's the kind of history lessons I like. It's interesting to read how the tenement housing conditions were in the mid 1950's also with lifestyle choices and her long work hours. There are two other books she wrote that I am itching to get my hands on.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
