My mitt pattern changed in one week, I'm now knitting the Optimistic Mitts. I loved the Jo March Mitts but I wasn't getting gauge and I didn't want to knit with worsted weight on size 3 needles, it would be too rough on my hands. I've notice that the tighter the gauge the more flare up on my joints. So I switched and am quite pleased with my choice. It's easy, fun and quick. One mitt is done and the other one is almost half way. I will knit up the March mitts one day with skinnier yarn. Oh and if you haven't seen it yet, I finished my garden shawl. I promise you, I'll be knitting that pattern again :)
We went to the library the other day and I scooped up a few books that I've leisurely flipped through. I was in the mood for some poetry and simple cooking. The word simple had me-I've heard about this cookbook and I might have to own it. I am still slogging, yes slogging through The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner. So far I'm hesitant to give an opinion-the characters are believable and interesting but the writing style is a challenge.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
